This special-edition podcast will keep you company for many miles. First up: Solo host Sarah welcomes back her longtime running friend (and book buddy) Ellison Weist to talk about great books to read this summer (and beyond). Suggestions range from a page-turning thriller from Stephen King to a moving memoir about a too-soon-departed love. Here is a list of all the books the ladies mention in this lively chat.
Then Sarah has a conversation with ultramarathoner Molly Sheridan, a mother runner of three and author of the memoir Running Past Midnight. A late-comer to running—she took up the sport at age 48—Molly tells how she jumped from running one 6-hour-ish marathon to tackling ultra-distance races, including the fabled Badwater and Marathon des Sables. Molly imparts wisdom for newbie ultramarathons, and she gives incredible advice for runners of all distances on how to get through the inevitable rough patches in races.
Along the way, find out what 1990s TV show Sarah is still undyingly devoted to.
