All about running a marathon


    Hour 2

    This weekend, Philadelphia will host its 17th annual marathon with over 20,000 entrants expected to run, so we’re devoting this hour of Radio Times to talking about long-distance running.  Our guests this hour are BART YASSO of Runner’s World Magazine, where he is called “Chief Running Officer,” and ALEXANDER VACCARO, orthopedic surgeon at Thomas Jefferson University’s Rothman Institute.
