We’re going deeper than ever before and exploring what it means to be an athlete. Our guests range from pro cyclist Laurens ten Dam, who speaks about his struggles in the pro peloton and the time when his career almost ended, to Mirna Valerio, author of the blog “Fat Girl Running” who is trying to change people’s perceptions about what it means to be fit. We’ll speak with Ricky Gates about what he found when he was running every single street in San Francisco – all 1,300 miles of them. And we’ll hear from Brian Williams about what it was like to run the Comrades Marathon in South Africa with his son Tom after he had been exiled from his home country for 15 years for protesting apartheid. These are just a handful of the guests featured on Athletes Unfiltered – subscribe now so you don’t miss any of our second season!

Over 52,000 people ran the 2019 New York City Marathon. Some were fast, some were less fast, but they all ran the same course, and the same distance, and according to our panel of experts, they were mostly all still nervous, and hoping that they didn’t have a problem with a bowel movement.This episode features the best tips and tricks from a pre-race panel with marathon coach Jon Honerkamp, ultrarunner and filmmaker Billy Yang, 85-time marathon/ultramarathon finisher Mary Arnold, and Scott Fauble, who finished seventh in the 2018 NYC Marathon. It was moderated by Runner’s World editor Jeff Dengate, at the New York Roadrunners RunCenter, not far from the marathon’s finish line.
