A couple of weeks ago, I got an interesting message on one of the message boards I participate in. The person identified herself as a journalism student at Columbia University School of Journalism in New York. She wondered if I could take the time to speak to her about walking marathons, as it was her current assignment to write an on-line article about the growing popularity of walking marathons.
I asked to see some of her work so that I would know this was a legitimate inquiry. I checked out the information she sent me, and after doing so, I agreed to speak to her. The article she produced is http://jscms.jrn.columbia.edu/cns/2009-04-28/barrie-walkingmarathons.
I thought you all might be interested to read it.
