Because it's not busy enough covering the SUMMER OLYMPICS in RIO DE JANIERO, WESTWOOD ONE NEWS correspondent STEVE KASTENBAUM ended up organizing a five-mile run for media members early SUNDAY morning.
KASTENBAUM was looking for runners to go out with him on a morning jaunt, and put up signs in the Media Village elevator saying "Let's Run." And a hardy band of eight other runners decided to join him for a little exercise, prompting KASTENBAUM to say, "This is so worth sleeping three-and-a-half hours."
DIERDRE FITZPATRICK of HEARST NBC affiliate KCRA-TV/SACRAMENTO was along for the run -- she's a dedicated marathon runner -- and took this video of the run:
