What a podcast.

The 2019 TCS New York City Marathon is in the books and we got giddy ourselves talking about it. We broke down all the action and the weekend in New York, with the impressive wins by half marathon world record holders Geoffrey Kamworor and Joyciline Jepkosgei, and got in heated discussions about the US Olympic Marathon Trials, Kamworor’s best event for Tokyo, the World Marathon Majors possible Chinese expansion, Anthony Rotich, Donald Trump, and of course the Dallas Cowboys, NY Giants and New England Patriots.

Longer show notes below.

100% of tips this week go to LRC’s Jonathan Gault.
