Jim Braude and Margery Eagan did a three-hour version of the show Monday to cover the 118th Boston Marathon. WGBH News's Edgar B. Herwick III and Emily Rooney reported live from the course, as did Natalie and Joe Stavas. Also, neuroscientist Dan Levitin talked about the best playlists to get you pumped up for running, and Dr. Douglas Comeau talked about how the body reacts to extended periods of running.
