In this episode Andy & Crystal get a chance to sit down and talk one of the original founders of the Marathon Maniacs, Tony Phillippi.   

We talk about how the club started and how it has grown and changed over the years.  We find out the real reason why Andy wants to become a Maniac.  

We cover his experience as a race director of the Tacoma City Marathon.

We also get his  advice and philosophy on training and racing.  At the time of recording, Tony has run 278 marathons with multiple sub-3 hour finishes.
