A Jason Burke Thanksgiving – Ep 017

Jason Burke has run 56 marathons in 21 cities across 4 continents. He was also Evan’s college teammate on Tufts University’s cross-country and track teams. After surveying Jason’s opinions of other people with the last name Burke (3:40), Evan and Jason talk running marathons and the viral story about a college runner who got hit by a deer during a race, which leads Burke to recount his first-hand hit-by-a-deer-while-running experience in 1997. (11:50) They then reminisce about the legend of 351 Boston Avenue, the off-campus house where Burke lived with four other teammates. This causes Evan to haphazardly cast the ‘351’ movie.

The conversation then turns miscellaneous as Burke weighs in on music, explains what he does for a living and updates us on little brother Tim.

It’s Thanksgiving so be thankful for this interview with Jason Burke! And get on a damn treadmill!
