Marathon Podcast

As runners prepare for today's 110th Boston marathon lacing up their shoes and donning sweatbands, at least one runner will also be plugging in his microphone, and hitting the record button.

Oxford resident Steve Walker is the creator of the podcast "Phedippidations," named after phedippides, the Greek soldier who ran the 26 miles from the city of marathon to Athens in 490 BC.

Usually about an hour long, the podcast is a collection of thoughts, reflections and rambling diatribes recorded while running long distances.

Steve will be recording and podcasting his run in Monday's marathon.

This program aired on April 17, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
