"The resources and and whatnot in we can do this and keep people safe whereas other races. It might be a little bit more risky because they don't have the resources so we feel competent. That will have a safe event. I mean everything with bussing people from boston to the start in hopkinton to whole new dropping go system of rolling stock versus an athlete's village and then carousing ways. That's all gone. I think at the end of the day the runners. At least i know i would really really love this experience of dropping. Go because you know. It isn't like bring him out to hopkinton four hours before the stat. Drop them off in the middle of a field and say nell sipa two hours or three hours and trying to decide what the e china's state comfortable stein. The weather's nasty you're cold you're wet issue that or here. It's like note on the bus bringing you out the drop off right near the dot. You're gonna walk down grove street. Grab a cup of water. Use the restroom head up to this that in cla to go back. It's like a concierge. Marathon experience really. is you know. When do i start when you get there right and you go yeah you don't have that whole camaraderie. You know whole bunch of people together like saudi means At the stott that won't exist spectators. I'm sure will be down. And it just i would just take it all in as a a very unique probably never will happen again. Experience young it will be different it. It's still boston is still the same you know and I think people can have a blast and just to put people's mind at ease even though these other races or canceling. You're saying boston still go. I haven't heard anything. He's not going to cancel this thing. So i don't think right it's been no talk about cancellation in the last couple of months. So right now. A full steam ahead again. Never say never anything can happen. I think public officials would be in a position to sort of say. It's too risky and we have to. We have to call it off. We don't expect that it could happen. But we don't expect that so your permits could get cold in. It could be nothing you can do about it. Yeah right right well. That's how ninety nine percent of the races cancelled his. It's not the organization necessarily it's public officials saying we can't allow you to continue with this. Ain't nothing you can do about it. So i mean that's what happened last year..

"But i also know how important it is for a lot of marathoners throughout the world. So i treat it that way. It's amazing that though you have so much familiarity with it and obviously involved in have been involved in all the nuts and bolts of it. You still have that kind of respect for it and so cool that you've been able to run it consecutively for so many years now after you became the full director. I've heard that you run it after the event finishes so you're kind of like the last one out there. Yeah i actually start at the very first year one native. Because i had to make a decision. Do i continue. Run in it. As i had committed to myself and my grandfather that i would do that or do i help. Run it directly. And how can i walk away from this opportunity to help manage it. So i i stood figure out a way and i took the job and then i was standing at the finish line that year in eighty eight now. Hi five and all runners. And but i didn't feel too good. I mean. It was self-pity for sure were just said you know i'm an athlete. When am i doing standing here. I know my jobs almost over. Everyone's almost done it still more time in the day so i tapped the state police trooper shoulder. I said officer. We do me a favor with that. You drive me back to start says why. Get something i said. Yeah i forgot to run. We told me back. I started eight o'clock at night and finished a little after eleven and I've done at that way for the last thirty four years. I've been the last finisher of the boston marathon to the thirty four years back then i i mean. I was in my thirties. So it wasn't as big a deal. Now as you get older and the aging process and stop it gets harder and harder. Obviously you get slower and slower. You know and i'm on my feet. I'm not looking for any pats on the back but i'm on my feet all day. I'm not eat. It's not the best way to really get up to run a marathon. The defeat for twelve hours don't need anything be stressed like you wouldn't believe and then oh yeah okay now now chuck turn type thing but yeah i wouldn't have it any different army night. I have some incredible experiences and stories of running at night. And i've had so many people join me and people at the finish line. Some of the best maricon is of all time waiting at the finish holding the brake tape from joni billy the tina to rose a motor. I mean the list goes on jackie. Row all these people have been there waiting me at the finish and it just kind of like a cool way for the data so to end and for me. It's the calm after the storm. Were i'm able to run the course reflect on the day and think about next year's race in how we can improve upon it things like that but i've been able to keep my commitment to mike grandfather. Even though it's i do it. In a different way i have a motto in life motto is. It's it's my game so it's my rules and that's how i play. This went up to marathons my game. So it's my rules. I think he'd even be more proud of you with just that. Twist that you're the last one out there running late at night. Yeah you've got to know that he's smiling down on you every time you do it. Yeah and you know the the hope is that it can inspire other people to sort of believe in themselves and make that commitment. Do the work. Well hope you've enjoyed the conversation.

You cannot go along and light and sat reckless goals. You really had no business being in that race. She didn't earned the right to do it. I said you're right. He says cut another deal with you. And i said what's that he says. You train is a novelty train. All right and i'll be here waiting for your next year. I said fine. Two months later my grandfather died. And i said i gotta do this. For grandpa turned eighteen officially registered. I was ready to go which running one hundred twenty hundred thirty miles a week and just ready to go on the day before the race.

They cry because they're going through more pain than you're going through right. They're so worried about you. And and there's my dad and what's he doing. He's taken pitches of my mother crying and i kept going. I kept going to the point. Right dropped out the before. And i'm doing the survivors shuttle over the hills and finally it got the twenty one and a half miles boom down. I go again. I put my head in my hands and i just said i guess this just wasn't meant to be you know i wasn't meant to be an athlete. I'm the last picked last one cut. Drop out first boston. Drop out of my second boston. But then what. I call it a defining moment in my life occurred and we all experienced defining moments and i turned around and i dropped out from the evergreen cemetery. And that's where my grandfather was buried in. I didn't realize that and this is tombstone like the a- and that son of a gun said he'd be there waiting for me now maybe he wasn't there physically but he was there spiritually and he kept his under the deal.

I've never been at the start of the boston marathon. Because i've never run the boston marathon. Who fires the gun is it. You know. I guess they've no.

Use a member of the family usually the gun there on the status platform typically way back when when the clock struck new time. They fired the gun. While that year there was a row holding around his back and mr brown raised brennan. He shot the gun in the row for still up in people status tripping in all. I can't stop so somebody had the idea that maybe we should hire someone to kind of take a closer look at all this and they hired me as a consultant technical coordinator and all i did was removed the rope but it's never happened since that it hasn't happened since remove the road. Put a human chain of volunteers there. And i'm standing on the ground and so i'll tell the human chain to move out of the way i have a headset with the countdown. I won't signal the fire. The gun until i feel confident that we're ready to go leave vehicles in place. No vehicle is stalling. The wheelchairs taken off their okay. No one's crash none of that stuff. Nothing's going on down costs. That should impede this. One is aligned out. Everyone's here we're ready to go. Five four three and i give the signal they fighter but i love this stuff.

Right? Same LATRONIC GPS system. Option that you have there and you upload that time that you do on your on your trainer. And then you have a total time right for the bike and run that you just did for those that want to manually upload that information night on my watch. I go for. Ten minute run right I come back and I say I don't know how far I went necessarily until maybe map it out through this application that I found online and I can tell you that Matt ten minutes I went half mile.

"He had ripped abs and he was a fast runner and she said, you know, and I was young in my early twenties at that time. I said, want to I want to follow that plan and so I started toying with it for a while and you know, I would do it here do there and all that but it wasn't until about nineteen eighty-six that I got serious about running. I moved out to Los Angeles and I I stopped running and he challenged me to do the LA Marathon in 1989. And I said, all right, how far is that? He goes 26.2 miles I go perfect. No idea what the hell 26.2 miles was at that time, but I trained for it and I finished my first marathon and I felt phenomenal and I got the bug and I never stop. From there and just continued to run and then it just accelerated as years went by and it became my passion love and especially when I got into running groups. I met so many friends and all my friends now, they're all Runners. That's I mean, I have some that are outside of the running Community but running is off is my life and it's my passion and it's my love and and every realm of it from race director to you know to just running to just keep watching people come across the finish line and doing things they never thought could do it's amazing. I mean, that's kind of I guess answers the next question. That's really cool to hear cuz I mean, that's pretty clear why you started a feel-good running podcast cuz I think everyone just listening now started to feel pretty good about your story cuz that's that's pretty inspirational. That's really cool. Oh, thanks. And you know, I don't know how I got started with feel-good running or what was the trigger point. I think I think was looking for something additional to do and I started here and started listening to podcast and I thought it was really cool and you could go on and you could search your genre off and I saw put in running one day and I podcast popped up.

"The press trust and the pictures of this incident flashed around the world even before I finished the race people around the world we're seeing these images of this girl running a girl being attacked by race director and then being saved by burly boyfriend because in nineteen sixty seven that's what people love to think is that you know from girl did something and was a damsel in distress she was gonna get saved by the knight on the white charger and and that's essentially what happened but the whole story was bigger than that the whole story was a much bigger one about why women included in the Boston Marathon why this official was so angry with me for running what was the problem here it wasn't the road free and open space for everybody so certainly it was a moment that changed my life I often say I started the Boston Marathon is a girl and I finish the Boston Marathon is a grown woman because the reality is you can't run twenty six point two miles that's a distance of a marathon twenty six miles three hundred eighty five yards you can't run that distance and stay angry and up through the next few miles I'm trying to figure out why this official so angry with me and and and I was really furious with him I was afraid of him the long about heartbreak hill about twenty one miles into the race the anger really left me and it left me with wondering why and I said well that's because.

"To take you on wild ride today. But before we dive in to the workout I checked out last week in Boston. Let's quickly recap last week with Boston marathon race director. Dave mcgivering. He's quite inspirational guy. So it was great to hear from him about his experience covering from heart surgery in continuing to run six months after triple bypass open heart surgery. He ran twenty six point two miles a couple of weeks ago, which I find absolutely remarkable. So we talked about that how that went. And how the Boston marathon. Overall that I asked him about him running seven marathons and seven days on seven continents, which I still cannot understand probably never will. I wish we had more time with Dave. I had a few more questions for him. Like what what was it like running in Antarctica? So we'll have to get back. Get Dave back here in the future. So for this episode. It's going to be a lot different the last week. Last thursday. I went to a dance party workout at seven AM. And and it was awesome. In the next twenty twenty twenty five minutes, you might wanna start dancing and working out if it's safe to do. So so, you know, go right ahead and start working out to the beach. We're going to play here. So the workout I checked out was called daybreak. It was at the paradise rock club on comrades in Boston. And it started with yoga at six AM glow sticks. Greeted you when you arrived? And so here's what it sounded like in the dark venue for yoga last Thursday paradise rock club. There. They're about seventy people or so for yoga. In towards the end of the first peaceful. Our people started arriving for the dance party workout people were dressed up in animal, outfits pajamas. Onesies people have been told to dress up as animals for this week. This theme there is a large blow up unicorn on stage. So I wanted to learn what was about to happen and started to talk to a few organize organizers volunteers. So here you go..

He says they'll put side walls on the tents and add heat. He says runners should stay out of the rain as long as they can last year's race. If you recall was plagued by rainy, windy and generally miserable conditions well around Boston common today. Don't be surprised if you see a lot of soldiers the US army holding planned exercises on the common until five o'clock. It's part of army week according to retreat from the Boston police Depa. Moment. There will also be performances by US army parachute demo and drill teams as well. As a landing of a Black Hawk helicopter and an annual rite of passage taking place on the Boston common. The swan boats officially opening for rides. Chris cook is the chief of environment and open space for the city of Boston. That's a big day. I mean, it's a every single postcard. You have the city of Boston all the travel, brochures, always features the swan boats. So we really feel like spring hasn't started until those boats. Go around the water, we'll say it's a little unsparing like right now. But hopefully, the boats will bring this on on.

"Sponsored by Jimmy dean, sure, say the breakfast bangers. Awesome. Also on the Jimmy dean breakfast bangers team. Yes. Okay. So there's us both on the team. So they want one of us to win. So one of us might you know, we'll be like don't worry. We're going to one of us a win this race. So maybe you're a head. And then I see some jerks behind you trying to catch up on getting their way. So the my okay ten you sitting. Yeah. That's interesting. Okay. So it's a lot about teams that you don't really you don't necessarily think about that. So you're not just playing for yourself playing. You're not just driving for yourself. There's also some strategy and another person. Yes. Okay. That's just hear about people like slingshot in. Yeah. Yeah. Are like you're you're just mess. You're just blocking people. Yup. Very technical basic truth cartoons. So the qualifying sessions determined the starting order for the actual race on Sunday. So you have some some free practice sessions or whatever. But then that helps to determine what were will be on a Sunday of the race. So the race. Actually, we ends of the warm up lap after which cars assemble on the starting grid in the order they qualified and this lap is often referred to as the formation lap. As the car's lap information with no overtaking, although a driver who makes a mistake may regain lost ground provided. He has not fallen to the back of field. The warm up lap allows drivers to check the condition of the track in their car. It gives the tires a chance to warm up to increase traction. And it also gives the pit crews time to clear themselves in their from the race greater throughout the race. Drivers may make pit stops to change tires and repair damage different teams and drivers may play different pits up strategies in order to maximize their cars potential. So there's like different tyre compounds that you might wanna do depending on how the track is different. Maybe there's different fuel involved. Oh, gosh. Yeah. So different tires will have like different colors on their sidewalls. Okay. Tell so like you might be like, oh, it's really wet out here. I'm going to put these special ones on. Yeah. We're very good at that. We should really be on the dean breakfast bangers to you. Nascar call us. We will be very here. But we're talking about Formula one, right? Thirty three different drivers have won the Formula one world drivers championship with German, Michael Schumacher, holding the record for most titles at seven the current champion for twenty teen is British driver Lewis Hamilton.

"That's just super exciting for the sport. And we're really happy. How twenty eighteen ended up? We're the airplane geeks. So let's get geeky firm moment. What telemetry are the aircraft's sending you? So in race control. Which is basically the the CIC the information center, if you will of the entire event, we have really kind of two groups in there. One is the aviation side and one is the event production side. So from telemetry side what the planes are sending me or the ABA Shen group that's in race control items that we think about from safety in aviation perspectives. But then also from sporting perspective. And so the telemetry that comes to us that we use that we take immediately that would go into judging scenario would be g and airspeed. So we get a mediate indication of an over g situation and we get. Of course, they're they're airspeed throughout the entire race. You're getting airspeed where are you getting the airspeed from it's actually from the GPS side of positional data. If you will if you look at how elaborate our ghost track is, right? That's really what has sophisticatedly advanced are positional data because we want that to be super super accurate, right? We want that to make sure that if you're looking at it in your were using it from spectators perspective as a who's winning who's writing? Seeing the ghost images that you project. Exactly. So that ghost image. It's real critical from a credibility perspective that that's accurate, right? You don't want in real life for the plane to fly through the finish gate, and then the go specter to come in second. But then all of a sudden the guy behind XY has the faster time that would really damage the credibility of the whole system. So a lot of effort and time and expense at cetera has gone to that positional at data. And so that actually what is also what helps calibrate all of our other. Airspeed G force all that type of stuff is coming from this super complex. Gee, whiz box called a p p r you that's in the aircraft. All right. So the pilot though has to be on his skill part. He's flying off of indicated airspeed. So he's having to calibrate that quite indicated. He's he's seeing the same thing. We're seeing also we have a screen. He's not just looking at a at a pneumatic airspeed indicator in his plane. He's looking at a digital readout that exact same as us. So again from a sporting perspective. We don't want him to be looking at something different than us. We want everybody to be looking at the exact same number. So the big screen, and they can set it up differently depending on the pilot. What his desires are just like a heads up display in a fighter you, can you can pick and choose how you want certain things done and in the g force lights, etc. So that's that's where the pilot has some choice. But. He's looking at the exact same number that we're looking at in all of his all of his data. How are you transmitting that from the aircraft to the ground is that x what part of the spectrum different radio? What are you doing? Did. You know, you're getting out of my level of expertise. That's our technical group. That is actually the ones that are on. That are putting the boxes in the airplanes. All I know is the race director is that it's accurate. It's exactly what the pilot is looking at it goes into this fancy box, and then this fancy box since it down to my screen, and then I get to evaluate what's going on. And then judge both from what I see outside. In addition to what I see digitally. Okay. Now as the rare race director, are you acting as the air boss or does your boss work for you? How's that is? So we call it a race. Director in the red areas. And I'm responsible if you if you're trying to compare it to something like an air show, the there's an air boss function to my job as so air boss is part of what I do in the sense of IM controlling the air side of things. But in addition to that, I also have a safety hat on from sporting perspective, and his sporting hat on in the sense that the judges are assisting me, and I'm calling somebody knock it off..
