October 03, 2012 at 9:00am EST | by Barbara Huebner, NYRR News Service

Tune in tonight at 8:00 p.m. EDT for the latest edition of NYRR On the Run, headlined by a visit with Meb Keflezighi and his family in Mammoth Lakes, CA. The ING New York City Marathon on November 4 will not only mark the 10th anniversary of Keflezighi’s first marathon—right here in New York—but will also be the fourth marathon in this calendar year for the popular 37-year-old. It’s a string that has so far included a U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials victory, a fourth in the London Olympic Games, and two personal bests.

“To have done four quality marathons is going to be a challenge to anybody … but I think as long as I can stay healthy I can perform. And what a great way to finish [the year,] to be able to run a PR in New York,” Keflezighi says in an accompanying NYRR On the Run Radio podcast.

This week’s edition of NYRR On the Run will also feature “Local Hero” Travis Moret, a 12-year-old from the Bronx; a chat with journalist Joe Battaglia on the future of the World Marathon Majors; a look at Team Athena, an all-woman running group in Portland, OR; and training tips from the Oregon Track Club.
