Ever heard of the Rock N Roll Marathon Series? Yeah, I thought you may have. Well, you may not know that this series of marathons, which routinely churns out great race after great race, all with an average of like a bazillion runners, is owned by the Competitor Group. Amby Burfoot, editor at large of Runner’s World magazine, called the group “the best in the game” with regards to putting on high-quality marathons.
Earlier this year, the Competitor Group acquired Competitor Publishing which offers information on training, health, fitness, nutrition, running, cycling, and triathlon. Competitor Publishing was co-founded by Bob Babbitt who in 1980 who completed his first Ironman on $75 police auction bike that had been charred in a fire. Together with Paul Huddle, a top 10 finisher at Ironman Kona, they host the Competitors Radio Show.
Why do I tell you this? Well, tonight I have the honor of being a guest on their show. It will be broadcast live on 1090 AM if you are in the Southern California area. Otherwise, I will assuredly let you know when they post in on their website for mass consumption (or check for yourself HERE!)
In the meantime, Happy Holidays everyone!
