David Epstein is a senior writer at Sports Illustrated and a former 800 meter runner at Columbia. His current book, The Sports Gene, is creating huge buzz. David was kind enough to come on with us to chat about his travels to Jamaica to get a sense of their sprinting culture and then on to Kenya to examine why the athletes there have been so successful when it comes to going long.
Austin Murphy is a long-time writer for Sports Illustrated, and during his career he has covered everything from the Super Bowl to the Tour de France. He has written numerous books including The Sweet Season, The Happiness of Pursuit, and Unstoppable. During our chat we covered everything from Austin’s thoughts on cycling and Lance Armstrong to his recent Zappos.com Rock ‘N’ Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon adventure dressed as Elvis for an upcoming piece in Sports Illustrated.
He is the author of Saturday Rules, The Sweet Season, and his latest book is The Happiness of Pursuit. In that book Austin Murphy from Sports Illustrated takes you inside the world of one of America’s greatest cyclists, Davis Phinney. The book is a GREAT read and Austin is a joy to chat with.
