Matt Futterman on Running to the Edge: A Band of Misfits & the Guru Who Unlocked Secrets of Speed
“What I hope is that it’s the book that can make you faster, make you love running even more and make you feel like you want to go out for a run – which people have told me and that’s really cool that’s the feeling they get.”
Matthew Futterman, the New York Times’ deputy sports editor, joins the podcast to discuss his new book “Running to the Edge: A Band of Misfits and the Guru Who Unlocked the Secrets of Speed.” The book paints an excellent portrait of Bob Larsen’s untraditional training methods and plans to really make U.S. distance running relevant again in the early 2000s with Meb Keflezighi and Deena Kastor. Beyond just being a running book, there are many life lessons in a great underdog story.
