Episode Info:

Since his column started in Runner’s World magazine, he’s become one of the running community’s most popular personalities.

The New York Times identified John as the creator of the slow running movement which brought the joy of activity to a new generation of runners and walkers.

Known by his fans as “the Penguin” for his back-of-the-pack speed, John Bingham is the unlikely hero of the modern running boom. Overweight, uninspired, and saddled with a pack-and-a-half-a-day smoking habit Bingham found himself firmly wedged in a middle-age slump. Then, he discovered running and changed his life forever.

In this week’s show, we cover a ton of ground, to include:

  • His Army experience, and how it has affected his life.  
  • His history and beginnings as a runner.
  • Why his non-traditional approach to running has found such appeal

And much more!
