This One's For Kelvin

Tragic news broke on the sunny morning Rob and Paul ran out on this week - the untimely death of the world's fastest marathon runner Kelvin Kiptum, and his coach Gervais Hakizimana; RIP. This episode, for what it's worth, is dedicated to those guys. Also featuring memories of Abebe Bikila, Rob running with his wife, a bad beginning to a friendship, watching runners go by, not loving long training runs, phantom-and-real physical fears, our regular booze-and-gig reports, Paul's family in the four corners of the globe, the hell of compromise, self-coaching, running into emotional vulnerability, the parkrun hoo-ha, a new parkrun review, variations on the Sound of Music and Paul's plan for keeping the house clean.
