Chris Chavez and Matt Meyer recap all the news and top stories from the running world in January 2020.

It's an Olympic year and we're already getting hit with doping violations involving major stars like Wilson Kipsang. Coronavirus has led to the cancellation of the World Indoor Championships, which were slated to be held in Nanjing, China. World records fell.

We touch on the best performances from the Houston Half Marathon, Dubai Marathon, Rock 'N' Roll Phoenix. We hit the best track performances from the Dr. Norbert Sander Invitational in New York City and the New Balance Boston Grand Prix.

We touch on Edward Cheserek's decision to run for Kenya. We were treated to the news of the Eliud Kipchoge and Kenenisa Bekele showdown in April.

Yes, we talk about the major Nike VaporFly shoe debate that continues to be a topic of controversy. This podcast was recorded before World Athletics has released its findings and recommendations for new regulations. RIP Chonky Bois (aka the AlphaFlys). We barely knew you.
