On this week’s episode, Canadian Running editor Michael Doyle and staff writer Tim Huebsch chat with Canada’s favourite marathoner, fellow podcaster and past contributor, Rob Watson. Originally from London, Ont., he now resides in Vancouver where he has transitioned from elite runner to coach with Mile2Marathon alongside Olympian Dylan Wykes.

Following the 2016 London Marathon and falling short of the Olympic qualifying time, Watson said that “this is the end of this chapter” –the end of high level training, and as it turns out, the end of iteration one of his very popular podcast The Rob Watson Show. But after a few months off, Rob is back. We discuss the return of his podcast, diving full-time into coaching, and his take on the future of marathoning in Canada.

And at the end of the episode, we bring back weekly recommendations.

Tim recommends: Black Diamond Sprinter Headlamp

Michael recommends: Saucony Kinvara 9 (available in spring 2018)
