Interview with Steve Low, Marathon Medal Collector

We are in a field in Wales interviewing Steve Low. “So, Steve, how many London Marathons have you completed?” That was Steve’s ninth. “So compared to the other eight…?” It was as hot as one of them but the others were cooler. “What is your pre marathon prep?” On the day get up, tape up: quads, feet, boobs, then a […]
