In this episode we speak with Joel Cohen, author of the book ‘How to Lose a Marathon -a Starter’s Guide to Finishing in 26.2 Chapters’.
Not too long ago Joel went from a out-of-shape coach potato and writer/producer for The Simpsons t.v. series, to a slightly out-of-shape finisher of the New York City Marathon.
His book describes the odd and painful things you discover when you become a long distance runner.
Joel is a writer and producer for The Simpsons and winner of two Emmy Awards and three Writer’s Guild Awards.
In How to Lose a Marathon, Joel Cohen takes readers on a step-by-step journey from being a couch potato to being a couch potato who can finish a marathon. Through a hilarious combination of running tips and narrative, Cohen breaks down the misery that is forcing yourself to run.
