Genzebe Dibaba is back atop the 1500 ranks on the three year anniversary of the Jama Aden raid, what does that mean for Jenny Simpson’s medal chances after her run in Rabat (13:54)? We talk adidas Boost Boston Games (25:43), Lynna Irby and Sammy Watson going pro (31:57), and the email of the week is on Katelyn Tuohy and young high school girl phenoms (39:46). Thread of the week is on Allie Ostrander and female body weight discussion (50:02) which leads to US women’s soccer talk, intersex talk, and transgender talk (56:34). Then we turn to who would you rather be Josh Kerr, Grant Fisher or Drew Hunter (68:38)? We end with book talk on Matthew Futterman’s Running to the Edge book on Bob Larsen (79:53), and Rojo stream of consciousness.
