Reno Stirrat and Gary Allen are two of the most remarkable marathon runners in the world.  They're members of a small, elite group of runners who have run sub 3:00 marathons in each of the last 5 decades.  Beginning in the 70's and all the way through the current day, they've run marathons in the sub 3:00 hour category.  It's a fascinating discussion.  We'll cover their journey into marathon running, how they've stayed in shape, what it was like when women entered the sport, how they feel about race fields increasing in size and diversity of talents, the 2013 Boston Marathon, the future of America in the sport of marathon running and what it's like to line up in corral #1 for over 35 years.  All that plus their reflection on Joan Benoit Samuelson's win at the LA Olympics and much, much more.
