A Marathon Can Be Many Things...

October's 'state of the nation' run around Hampstead Heath turns out to be a sunny treat. After a nice start, Rob and Paul talk final training runs, the psychological power of a bit of repetition, whether Paul's done enough long runs, his parkrun report, twitter trouble over 'meaningless' marathons, Rob's Grandad and other family resemblances, an impressive junior RED record, and how hard runs help in tough times.
