‘On The Run’ Episode 2 Stars Meb Keflezighi and More

In this week’s webisode, New York Road Runners’ On The Run caught up with American marathon icon Meb Keflezighi. Honestly, who doesn’t love Meb? He owns a silver medal from the 2004 Athens Olympics, won the 2009 ING New York City Marathon, and at the age of 37 still keeps the heat on all his competitors. After a fourth place finish at the London Games, he’ll celebrate the 10th anniversary of his marathon debut at the ING New York City Marathon in November.

You’ll also meet Travis Moret, a sixth-grader from the Bronx who runs an astonishing 4:50 mile while facing some serious roadblocks of his own. Joe Battaglia, a track and field producer for NBC Olympics, stops by to debate the merits of the World Marathon Majors, and the show pays a visit to Team Athena, an all-women’s running club in Portland, Oregon.

      I get to run all over New York City, but not to any of the far-flung locales. Maybe someday!

    That was another great episode. I’m impressed with the production standards and quality of the video — good enough for TV for sure!
