LetsRun.com’s Track Talk podcasts are being taken to to a whole new level this week as for the Boston Marathon the were transformed into The Runner’s Digest with Toni Reavis. To get you ready for the 2018 Boston Marathon, Reavis, who used to air The Runners Digest on local Boston radio, hosted three shows live this year from the Tracksmith Trackhouse in Boston (285 Newbury Street – just a few blocks from the most famous finish line in Boston). The three shows can be listened to in the players below and they are now available on stitcher as well. We aplogize but the audio for show #2 is full of background noise.
Sunday’s Show: The Weather and Final Predictions
Featured guests included Weldon Johnson, Ben Rosario of the Hoka One One /NAZ Elite Team and author/former Columbia star Liam Boylan-Pett.
Shalane Flanagan‘s mom, Cheryl Treworgy, was on the show as was Edna Kiplagat‘s agent, Brendan Reilly, and Bob Hodge. Our apologies for the audio issues as there was a lot of background noise. If you’re going to skip an episode this is it.
Friday: Boston Preview Show #1: The Inside Scoop from Friday’s Press Conferences
The first half of the two hour show featured Reavis and LetsRun.com’s Jonathan Gault and Robert Johnson breaking down the Boston elite field and sharing the inside scoop they got at Friday’s elite press conference. The second half of the show featured NY Times best-selling author Scott Douglas talking about his new book Running Is My Therapy: Relieve Stress and Anxiety, Fight Depression, Ditch Bad Habits, and Live Happier.
