We are thrilled to have Matthew Blume on to co-host this episode of Running trivia. Matthew Blume was the fastest runner from Illinois to complete the Chicago Marathon in 2014 with a time of 2:20:28. He completed the Berlin Marathon in 2:18:54 which was fast enough to let qualify him to be part of the US Olympic Trials. He wrote this episode all about running and can you answer questions like:
What is the byproduct of anaerobic exercise called?
Who was the first person to run under four minutes for the mile?
Which American woman won the first women’s Olympic marathon at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics?

In the 1968 Olympics, the world record in the long jump was shattered by which athlete?
Who is credited as being the first, though “unofficial” female champion of the Boston Marathon?
What Finnish word that is used in running translates to “speed play”?
