Our Normal Podcast Returns
LRC Podcast: Who Had The Better Career – Ritz, Webb Or Hall? Our normal podcast returns but this was far from a normal podcast as podcasting history was made as for the first time in world history a six-day-old baby appeared on a podcast. Once we adjusted to our new female co-host, we spent most of the show debating who had the better career – Dathan Ritzenhein, Alan Webb or Ryan Hall? Along the way, Rojo ranted about the need for colleges to open up this fall, Tedd Ginn Jr. was exposed as a liar, we wondered if World Athletics deserves more props for its anti-doping effectiveness, and much more.
Bonus Podcast LRC The Deena Kastor Podcast LRC visitors recently voted Kastor, the US marathon record holder at 2:19:36, as the greatest women’s US distance runner in history. Kastor talks about her amazing career that saw her go from being a pro on a gear-only contract, to one thrilled to be making $12,000 a year, to an Olympic medalist and US record holder.

MB: Nick Willis And Mary Cain Sign With Tracksmith The high-end apparel company founded by Wejo‘s old Yale teammate Matt Taylor is getting into the sponsorship game in a brilliant way as they got the NY Times to break the story with Cain. “The company is exploring a new kind of sponsorship in which professional athletes are treated like full-time employees. In addition to competing as a professional runner as soon as it is safe to do so, Cain will take on a role as community manager for Tracksmith in New York City, where she will be tasked with building the brand’s presence in a city chock-full of running clubs.”
