Episode 169: Live Show from the Boston Marathon-Podium Pioneers!
Jacqueline Hansen, winner of the Boston Marathon and first woman to break 2:40; she’s been a major advocate for women’s distance running, especially around getting distance races into the Olympics; she continues to coach.
Marilyn Bevans, the first African American woman to break 3 hours and finish top three at Boston. Featured in the documentary, Breaking Three Hours, Marilyn continues to be an advocate in the sport and has been a major inspiration for women’s running. Marilyn continues to coach as well.
Patti Catalans Dillon, multi-distance world record setter, three time top three finisher at Boston, first American woman to break 2:30; is a major inspiration in the running community, especially the Native community, specifically as head coach with the Wings of America Elite team. Patti shares how she started running to lose weight and eventually quit smoking.
We were also thrilled to see Marilyn Bevans honored on stage immediately after the panel by the Black Unicorn Marathoners; by Team Bevans, including Alisa Harvey, Sika Henry, Ingrid Walters, and Shawanna White, who ran in Marilyn’s honor; and in honor of Mariyn getting inducted into the Springfield College Athletic Hall of Fame the previous day.
A heartfelt thanks to the Boston Marathon and the Boston Athletic Association, especially Katie Hawkes, Suzanne Walmsley, and Adrienne Benton, and to all who attended and supported the show.

Episode 168: Tips for Boston Marathon Tapering and Spectating (with Spectating Expert Darren Sapper)
Thanks to all who left us reviews on Apple Podcasts! We SO appreciate your feedback!
Episode 167: Alisa Harvey
qualified for the Olympic Trials five times from the 800 meters to marathon distances, won the Army Ten Miler four times, and set numerous masters world records. Alisa was ranked in the U.S. top ten in the 1500 meters 8 years in a row from 1986 to 1993, achieving number 1 in 1993. Alisa will be adding one more race to her running resume—she will be running her first Boston Marathon in 2023. Alisa shared her incredible journey with us—admittedly there’s so much more to her story than what we cover in this episode—she needs to write a book—including how she dealt with several seemingly insurmountable obstacles and kept moving forward. Now, as a masters athlete, she continues to compete at a high level and shares tips for other masters women seeking to do the same. Thanks to Alisa for joining us and thanks to all of you for listening. This is a great episode!

Episode 159: Anthony “Tony” Reed, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the National Black Marathoners Association
After watching the documentary, Breaking Three Hours: Trailblazing African-American Women Marathoners, we were thrilled to welcome the creator, Tony Reed, who is the founder of the National Black Marathoners Association (NBMA). The NBMA is the country's oldest and largest, not-for-profit organization of Black American distance runners. The objectives are to encourage Black Americans and others to pursue a healthy life-style through long distance running and walking and serve as a vehicle for Black American distance runners across the nation to meet in mass at a single marathon. Tony shares why he wrote and directed the award-winning documentary, which is now streaming on Amazon Prime. Unbelievably, at the time of the creation of the documentary in 2022, only nine African American women had broken three hours in the marathon. The documentary shares the stories of these incredible trailblazing women:
1. Marilyn Bevans (1975 at Boston (2:55:52) 1979 Boston Marathon (2:49:56)
2. Ella Willis-Glaze 1981 Detroit Free Press Marathon (2:59:29) 1989 Detroit Free Press Marathon (2:38:22)
3. Michele Bush-Cuke 1981 Avon Marathon (2:39:07) 1991 CA International Marathon (2:37:41)
4. Michele Tiff-Hill 1980 Fiesta Bowl Marathon (2:57:14) 1983 Sri Chinmoy Marathon (2:50:19)
5. Ingrid Eugenia Walters 2014 Chicago Marathon (2:54:58) 2019 Los Angeles Marathon (2:48:03)
6. Alisa Harvey 1999 Richmond Marathon (2:49:28)
7. Samia Akbar 2006 New York City Marathon (2:34:14)
8. Sika Henry 2020 Tidewater Striders Marathon (2:57:13)
9. Shawanna White 2011 Kiawah Island Marathon (2:55:30) 2018 One City Marathon (2:45:19)
In addition to discussing the documentary, Tony shares more about his own record-setting accomplishments, why representation is so important, and how the running community can better support African American marathoners to ensure more than a handful of women break three hours and beyond in the marathon.

Episode 154: Emily Pifer, Author of the Memoir, The Running Body
In her book, Emily describes how, during her time as a collegiate distance runner, she began to run more while eating less. Many around her, including her coaches, praised her for these practices. But as she became faster, and as her body began to resemble the bodies that she had seen across start-lines and on the covers of running magazines, her bones began to fracture. Emily tells her story alongside the stories of her teammates, competitors, and others as they all face trouble regarding their bodies. The Running Body was selected by Steve Almond as the winner of the 2021 Autumn House Nonfiction Prize. Emily, who is currently pursuing her PhD at Syracuse University, can be found on Instagram at @emilydpifer. We absolutely loved this meaningful conversation!

Episode 121: Judge Craig Mitchell, Founder of the Skid Row Running Club: Running Is the Great Equalizer
After speaking with Skid Row Running Club member, Angel Salgado on Episode 118, we were thrilled to welcome Skid Row Running Club founder, Judge Craig Mitchell. Judge Mitchell started the Skid Row Running Club in 2012 after a man he had previously sentenced to prison, Roderick Brown, contacted him after his release to introduce him to the Midnight Mission in Los Angeles. As soon as Judge Mitchell, a marathoner, saw the Midnight Mission, he knew that the best way to reach those recovering from addiction at the Midnight Mission was through running and formed the Skid Row Running Club, which was featured in the 2017 documentary and received worldwide attention. Check out the documentary on Amazon Prime (https://skidrowmarathon.com/) or Apple TV. Judge Mitchell shares the impact of running on addiction recovery, and how running can break communication barriers and form unexpected bonds among the diverse members of the Skid Row Running Club.

With two months to go until the Boston Marathon, now is a great time to experiment with some fueling sources, figure out a nutrition plan, and implement that plan during training runs to train your gut well before race day.

Episode 111: Shalane Flanagan Was Not the Only One to Complete Six World Marathon Majors in Seven Weeks...Meet Joe Drake!
Meet the incredible Joe Drake. Like Shalane, Joe, at age 60, crossed the NYC Marathon finish line after completing his fifth World Marathon Major (plus a virtual Tokyo) in seven weeks. Joe decided to pursue this goal because (not in spite of) of his Parkinson’s Disease. Joe shares how his diagnosis in 2018 transformed him from an “everyday runner” to a marathoner and a Boston Qualifier. After all of the World Marathon Majors (minus Tokyo which was virtual) were scheduled for the fall of 2021 (thanks, Covid), Joe decided to tackle the challenge of running all six races in seven weeks. Joe not only managed to enter, travel, and run all six marathons, but he also raised over $35,000 for Team Fox, which is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease. In this episode, Joe shares the logistics, training and racing strategy behind his unbelievable accomplishment and reminds us all that our running is so much more about the journey and not race times. If you would like to donate to Joe's Team Fox fundraising efforts, check out his fundraising pages (one for each race for which he received a charity bib):

Episode 108: When a Father Provides Legs and His Son Provides Heart: A Conversation with the Incredible Dr. Bill Johncock
WOW Dr. Bill Johncock is just incredible! Bill is a podiatrist in Hickory, North Carolina, and a father of three, including Logan, who is 23 and was born with Angelman Syndrome. Bill, who is 57 and a six-time Boston Marathoner, shares how he ran his first Boston Marathon at age 19 with his then 55 year-old father and then went on to run over 100 marathons. When Bill learned that his son, Logan, would not be able to reach the same milestones as his other kids, Bill decided to create new milestones for Logan and began racing with Logan by pushing him in a customized racing wheelchair. After meeting Dick and Rick Hoyt at the race expo at the 2005 Boston Marathon, Bill was inspired to qualify for Boston with Logan as a duo team. Bill shares his 16-year journey toward qualifying for Boston with Logan (yes even duo teams like Bill and Logan need to meet the Boston qualifying standards) and then experiencing the long awaited joy of finally reaching the start line as one of only thirteen duo team participants at the 2021 Boston Marathon.
Listen with some tissues nearby.
Bill shares how Ainsley's Angels (Ainsleysangels.org), which ensures inclusion in endurance events, helped him and Logan get to the start line.

Episode 107: If I was Disappointed with My Marathon, Should I Run Another Marathon within the Same Training Cycle? Tips for Racing after Racing with Special Guest Caetlin Benson-Allott
After sharing our post-Boston Marathon recovery experiences, we talked about whether and and when it's appropriate to run another marathon in the same training cycle. After reviewing the factors one should consider when making the decision to run a second marathon in the same cycle, Lisa talks with one of our clients, Caetlin, who successfully ran (and PR'd) a second marathon after running a disappointing first marathon. We have been coaching Caetlin since 2017, when she came to us with the ultimate goal of getting her 3:50 marathon PR down enough to qualify for Boston. We worked with Caetlin to chip away at that time, also setting a half marathon PR along the way. When her initial attempt at a BQ at the 2018 Marine Corps Marathon fell short due to a virus, we helped Caetlin regroup and target a second marathon six weeks later, the 2018 Rehoboth Marathon, where she set a huge PR and qualified for the 2020 Boston Marathon with a 3:33 finish time. She returned to Rehoboth in December 2019, just before the pandemic, for a repeat performance and a new PR of 3:26. The pandemic meant Caetlin's first Boston Marathon was virtual, but she earned an entry to the October 2021 Boston and was able to toe the start line in Hopkinton with us last week. Be sure to listen to this week's podcast episode, as we welcome Caetlin as our guest and hear about her back-to-back marathons in an attempt to earn her BQ, as well as how she came to embrace and appreciate the "Plan B" approach to Boston following a back injury just three weeks before race day. Congrats, Caetlin!

Episode 98: Boston Marathon Winner and Coach, Lisa Rainsberger, Has the Mindset of a Champion
What a thrill to speak with 1985 Boston Marathon winner, Lisa Rainsberger! Lisa shares this accomplishment with only two other American women, Joan Benoit Samuelson and Des Linden. Lisa also competed in four Olympic Marathon Trials (1984, 1988, 1992, and 1996) during which she placed fourth, missing a spot in the Olympic games. For some, this would be a huge disappointment, but for Lisa, her fourth place served as a springboard for multiple marathon wins, in addition to Boston, including the Chicago Marathon in 1988 (2:29:17) and 1989 (2:28:15), something no American woman has repeated since, the Sapporo Marathon, the Twin Cities Marathon, and the Montreal Marathon, to name a few.
Lisa ended her twelve-year professional running career after becoming a mom, and now her daughter, Katie, is a professional runner who recently signed with Team Boss. Lisa also founded the Kokopelli Running Club for youth runners through which she has coached hundreds of youth runners in Colorado.
Lisa shares her champion mindset and how we can all create opportunities out of our disappointments.

If you like fitness and live in the DC area, chances are you've either taken or heard about Jenn Blackburn's classes. Jenn is one of the most talented fitness gurus in the country--no exaggeration--and, as a result, she was for the last six years, the area fitness manager for Equinox, her dream job. When the pandemic hit, Jenn left her dream job, realizing, like so many of us, that her priorities shifted. She is now an online instructor for Moxie, an online fitness platform (think Peloton but more interactive), and she has offered a free trial of her classes through this link: https://try.moxie.xyz/jen-blackburn-10-day-trial/. Jenn is a mom of five and tough as nails. While we spend some time talking about fitness, the bulk of this episode is a conversation about trauma and resilience. At age 48, Jenn is an expert on this topic after living a life that is filled with tragedy and, subsequently, hope. For those going through some hard stuff right now, we hope that this episode, which we release during Mental Health Awareness Month, that we can do hard things. In addition to Moxie, Jenn can be found on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/blackburn_jenn/

Episode 88: When Wellness Isn't Well: Debunking Diet Myths With Registered Dietitian and Author, Abby Langer
This week we welcomed Abby Langer, RD. Abby is an outspoken proponent of evidence-based nutrition, who has no tolerance for misinformation. Abby has devoted her career to breaking down dietary myths and challenging those who disseminate false nutrition and weight loss advice. In this conversation, Abby dives into nutrition myths, negative core values, such as "I am what I eat," and discusses her new book, "Good Food, Bad Diet."
Abby is most known for her no BS approach to nutrition communication and can frequently be found on Twitter challenging health and wellness gurus for disseminating false information. We loved this conversation, and appreciated her blunt and honest approach to nutrition.
More about Abby: Abby Langer has been a dietitian for twenty years and has worked in various settings from ICU to outpatient to media and consulting. She has worked with every client population and has built up an extensive knowledge base not only in clinical nutrition, but also in behavior change and counseling. In 2012, she started Abby Langer Nutrition to teach the world how to eat well without dieting and falling prey to nutrition fads. Her focus on the importance of both physical and emotional health and how they intersect with food and eating has resonated with thousands of readers. Her frank and edgy voice and her ability to break down complicated science into manageable information has earned Abby a place among Canada’s top media dietitians. She has a large and devoted following on her blog and on her social media platforms, where she can frequently be found debunking nutrition myths and explaining the latest nutrition research to her followers. Abby has written for and has been featured as an expert in many well-known media publications, including The New York Times, New Yorker magazine, Vice, Men’s Health Magazine, Women’s Health Magazine, SELF Magazine, Cosmopolitan, The Kitchn, Health magazine, SiriusXM, and many others. Her first book Good Food, Bad Diet was published in January 2021 by Simon and Schuster.

Episode 75: Being Fit on the Inside: A Conversation with Heart Health Heroes, Karin Bertozzi and Jeanmarie Gallagher
Heart disease is the number 1 killer of Americans, taking more than 600,000 lives each year. In honor of Heart Month and Wear Red Day, we are excited to bring on two incredible guests. First, we are excited to share Karin Bertozzi's journey with our listeners. In 2014, Karin, an extremely fit yoga instructor and multisport athlete fainted in a supermarket and then woke up after a 12-hour open heart surgery. She shares her journey from suffering a near fatal cardiac event to recovering and becoming a cardiac yoga instructor for cardiac patients and volunteering for Mended Hearts, an organization that pairs cardiac survivors with cardiac patients to help ease fear and anxiety. Second, we welcomed one of the individuals who was instrumental in Karin's recovery, Jeanmarie Gallagher. Jeanmarie runs the cardiac rehabilitation clinic at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. In addition to being a clinical exercise physiologist, she is a former collegiate runner who ran track and field for Virginia Tech. Both women are inspiring and share their expertise and experience on handling setbacks and improving our own (or our loved ones') cardiac health. In honor of Heart Month, do yourself and/or your loved ones a favor. Make an appointment for your physical and remind your loved ones to do the same. In the words of past podcast guest and Boston Marathon Race Director, Dave McGillivray, you can't always outrun your heart health. Thanks to our editor, Erin Bryant, and our sponsor, OOFOS. Also, thank you to all of you for listening. Please screenshot and share our podcast and tag us on social media to help others find us!

If Not Me, Who; If Not Now, When? A Conversation with Beatie Deutsch’s Attorney, Akiva Shapiro

The women’s race is typically scheduled for a Sunday, and this is the first time the race has been scheduled on a Saturday. Beatie, who is an Orthodox Jew, observes the Sabbath, and, as a result, she does not run between sundown on Friday and sundown on Saturday. Akiva shares on the podcast why Beatie’s case is important, why the concept of reasonable accommodations for religious beliefs and observances is a well-established principle, and why Beatie is reluctantly and bravely advocating for change.
