In the intro to this podcast, we talk about Galen Rupp's return to the Chicago Marathon after Achilles surgery as well as results from the USATF Distance Classic at Occidental College including another amazing result from Stephanie Bruce.
Then, at 9:50 into the episode, I welcome two NY Times bestselling authors to the show in David Epstein and Alex Hutchinson to talk about David's new book Range: How Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World. David's first NY Times bestseller was The Sports Gene: Inside the Science of Extraordinary Athletic Performance.
Range is not a running book, but I believe it has application in the running training world. We talk about that and more in this far-ranging conversation with David and Alex starting with getting their perspectives on Eliud Kipchoge's newly announced attempt to break 2:00.
