Live from a marathon
The New York Times had one of its reporters report on the marathon course while he ran. I enjoyed listening to Grant Burningham's reports because I could relate to everything he says as he thrives off the crowd support then experiences the dreaded wall before the exhilaration of finishing. He finished in 4:30, a few minutes behind Oprah, whose marathon time has become the target of most first-time marathoners, as she was for mine. So if you've wondered what a runner sounds like while they're running in a marathon, listen to Burningham's report.
