The 1609 Podcast


Oct 7, 2017

This week, Alex and Evan got to interview two representatives of the Chevron Houston Marathon! We spoke with Muffy King, the Communications Manager of the race event, and Heather Foley, a Houston local who's in the Ambassador program! Heather has run over 30 marathons/ultramarathons (including back-to-back finishes at the Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa), but loves all the other distances as well.

We talked about the history of the race, what runners can expect as far as the course goes, how Harvey impacted the race and the city, and how to best help out in Houston right now.
