AOT #144: Liz Robbins Podcasts A Race Like No Other: 26.2 Miles Through the Streets of New York
New York Times sportswriter Liz Robbins reads from and discusses her new book A Race Like No Other: 26.2 Miles Through the Streets of New York. When 39,195 competitors begin the thirty-eighth running of the famed New York City Marathon, they experience one of the most exhilarating moments in sports. But as they cross over bridges and through boroughs, carried 26.2 miles by the cheers of two million fans and by their own indomitable wills, grueling challenges await them. Robbins brings race day to life in this gripping saga of the 2007 Marathon, weaving the unforgettable stories of runners into a vibrant mile-by-mile portrait of the world’s largest marathon.
