This week’s Shakeout Podcast episode is hosted by editor-in-chief, Michael Doyle, web editor Sinead Mulhern and staff writer Tim Huebsch.

The Underdog

Today, the panel talks with a true underdog. Before 2016, no one had ever heard of Thomas Toth. Then, the unheralded Canadian bursted onto the scene, running one of the fastest half-marathons of the year by a Canadian. In April, Toth qualified for the IAAF World Championships by just one second and will represent Canada in London in August. Toth talks about all the sacrifices he’s had to make in order to become an elite level athlete.
