RRT 120: Marathon Maniacs

Listen in as Mike, Mark, Dan, Tim and Brian have a lively discussion about Marathon Maniacs. We discuss what is a Marathon Maniac, what you need to do to qualify, what our levels are, what our maniac numbers are, why you should want to join and many other aspects of the group. Dan is a 10 star maniac, Mike is a 3 star, Mark is a 1 star, Brian is a 1 star maniac and he is also a half fanatic and Tim has done 2 marathons in a month which isn't enough to get into the Maniacs but he was close.
