Mass for Shut-ins: The Gin and Tacos Podcast

Jan 7, 2022

Guest: Steve Mang, college professor and amateur ultra-long-distance runner, joins us to talk about CC Pyle's Bunion Derbies, the informal name of two LA-to-NYC footraces held in 1928 and 1929. Amateur runners, some lacking basic equipment or running experience, ran an average of 50 miles per day for at least 84 consecutive days. Steve gives non-runners like me some insight into the, let's call them "challenges" the human body experiences under those conditions.

For the cocktail of the month we RUN with the theme: the London Marathon

QC joins us for the mailbag.
