Brad and Julian review the upcoming Saucony Endorphin Pro, how it compares to other carbon fibre-plated racing shoes, going through its strengths and weaknesses and where they see themselves using them.
Molly Seidel, second placed in the 2020 US Olympic Trials Marathon talks with Julian, about the pressures competing as a highly touted recruit in the NCAA and talks candidly about her treatment eating disorders through and after college.

Going through the numerous injuries she has sustained on her career, Molly talks about the impact it’s had on her resilience/stubbornness before as well as the dynamic between her and coach John Green’s training and willingness to reach out for help and advice workouts in the lead up to her debut Olympic Trial Marathon and training for the hilly course as well as a brief recap of the race itself while feeding off the positive energy of the winner Aliphine Tuliamuk.
