Roberta Gibb was the first woman to run the Boston Marathon, and this year’s event marks the 50th anniversary of her historic achievement. We talk to Gibb and to RW contributing editor Amby Burfoot, who wrote about pioneering women runners in his recent book, First Ladies of Running. (00:42) On a lunch run, we test out unusual shoes and discuss what people should consider when purchasing new kicks. (18:07) We meet Joseph Tame, a British ex-pat living in Japan, who may just be the most connected runner in the history of the Tokyo Marathon. (23:43) The Kick leaves you with some of the most interesting news of the week. (36:45)
