The 1928 Bunion Derby was an epic footrace from Los Angeles to New York City.  The Hells of the Bunion Derby—is a short memoir by John Stone, Jr. of his 84-day odyssey as a participant in the race.  On today’s Endurance Planet—a Marathon & Beyond Monday edition—we hear Stone’s story.

Marathon & Beyond Monday is our weekly opportunity to hear an editor’s choice from Marathon & Beyond magazine.  We think you’ll find today’s story to be an entertaining and informative tale to take with you as you train and race.
