Dancing With The Mountain
Right foot. Touch here. Touch there. Push left. Jump.
Words typical of a dance routine are actually used to describe the choreography of running Mount Marathon.
Race veteran Clint McCool says you have to learn to do a dance with the mountain in order to succeed. Rhonda McBride said down with Clint and champion Holly Brooks to learn more about the race and why the fastest runner doesn’t necessarily always win.
On Frontiers, we explore the history of Mount Marathon and how the race got started 100 years ago. Mount Marathon: A Look Back airs Sunday, July 5 at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. It is also simulcast on GCI Channel 1.
