From Boston to the Beltway, Fogell Mcloving (Jonathan Ladson) Shares How He Finds Joy in the Journey
Last month, Jonathan Ladson, also known as Fogell Mcloving, ran the entire 91 miles of the DC area Beltway in just under 18 hours which beat the previous fastest known time (FKT) set by Michael Wardian. If that wasn’t enough, just in 2023, Fogell set a 2:36 marathon PR at Boston, followed by a fourth-place finish at Big Sur two weeks later, and a stellar performance at the Comrades Marathon while fundraising for World Vision. While Fogell’s talents are impressive, his joyful and transparent approach to his training are inspiring. Fogell shares how he finds joy and motivation, even at 4:00 am, and why we should all focus less on our performances and more on our experiences. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed talking with Fogell! Fogell can be found on Strava (he’s a great follow), Instagram, and Facebook under the name Fogell Mcloving. We have news...we finally have Run Farther & Faster apparel! Here's the link to our SquadLocker store!

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)

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!
