Podcast: Brynn Brown, the return of the Major Marathons, everyone is an All-American, bus-only NCAA XC and track and field's Grand Slams

In this week's pod, we propose a simple plan that should result in the major big-city marathons returning to action this fall. We also talk about Brynn Brown's amazing 9:39 3,200 meter run, get you ready for this weekend's high school sub-4 mile attempt, and rip the NCAA coaches for declaring every one who qualified for NCAAs at the DIII level an All-American. Along the way, we talk about Ben Rosario's idea to create 4 Grand Slams for track and field and wonder how the NCAA xc season will look if teams only travel by bus.

For the casual fan, all of those paces and splits might be overwhelming. But in our sport, there aren't many "casual" fans. For the running junkie, it's a treat."
