Episode 127 - Boston Marathon 2018

Episode description

It's our big Boston Marathon 2018 special! We begin with an event no one thought would ever come -- Alison Mariella Désir, founder of Harlem Run and Run 4 All Women, finally joins her friends Peter and Bryan IN PERSON. Alison talks about the efforts underway by Run 4 All Women to support activism around the 2018 midterm elections and about the amazing events in her personal and professional life since she last spoke with HWYRT. Next, runner and blogger Jennifer Kyle, aka jbirdruns, describes how she began running, how she expanded from blogger to athlete ambassador, and how she balances the public with the private when writing her blog. Then, Amanda Nurse runs out of the Boston Marathon catalog and into the podcast seat to talk about her plans to train for the Olympic trials. She also shares how she first got into running when she moved to Boston and how she is now returning to running following the birth of her son. Finally, Chris Heuisler of RunWestin stops by to share a few of his many AMAZING stories, including his part in helping to honor Meb Keflezighi on his retirement and how he chatted with Shalane Flanagan on marathon weekend. Plus, Chris offers advice to new runners.
