Happy Democracy Day! Jim Walmsley joins us at 90:07 to look back at his 2020, look ahead at his 2021, and his 100k world record chance this weekend at the HOKA Project Carbon X2.
Prior to that, track and field was back in a big way as Athing Mu began her collegiate career in style, Hugues Fabrice Zango broke the triple jump record, HS girls ran 2:02 and 9:47, an Olympic champ gets popped, 16 year-old Erriyon Knighton turned pro, Alexa Efraimson has a new coach, and Nick WIllis made sub 4 minute mile history.
