Podcast Episode 21 – Olympic Marathon Trials

In this episode we welcome Runner’s World Senior Editor Scott Douglas to the show to give us a preview of the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials which will be held on Saturday, February 13th in Los Angeles. For the first time ever, the trials will be broadcast live on NBC, and also streamed over the internet, starting at 1pm Eastern.

We discuss the mechanics of the Olympic Marathon Trials, how to qualify, what runners stand a good chance of making the Olympic Team and what parts of the race viewers should be watching most closely in terms of race strategy. We also try to figure out what emotional stories connected to the race will make Caryn cry, and in the process, we make Caryn cry.
