Old Crazy Runners - the Podcast

1h 42min
This episode may contain explicit content.

To simply say that Dave McGillivray is the director of the Boston Marathon might be one of the biggest understatements in the world of running. In his 20s he ran across the United States to benefit the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Many people credit him for being the first person to connect running and raising money for charities. McGillivray has logged more than 150,000 miles, most for charity, raising millions for worthy causes. He’s completed 158 marathons, which include 48 consecutive Patriots’ Day marathons (32 run at night after his race director duties are fulfilled). He's also completed the mind-bending 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents. To see everything he's accomplished, click here

Listen in who is the top Old Crazy Runner in the Strava Run Club. Does golf count as a recovery run? How many days is optimal for running per week? Are you using your Garmin app to program in intervals? We discuss these things and more before we chat with Dave. Be sure to sign up for the virtual Oregon Beer Run - an official OCR event.
