This was a lot of fun - a simulcast with the Just Athletics podcast, hosted by Josh Rowe and Chris Johnson.

Josh has worked with world class athletes in sports marketing at both Nike and New Balance.  Chris is a hard working HS coach and English teacher in Florence, Oregon.  I'm lucky to know both men.

We talk track in this episode because - let's face it folks - all three of us are track geeks.

I hope you enjoy this episode as much as the three of us enjoyed recording it.

Doug Petrick is a serious runner, a high school coach, a high school educator and a father with young children.  He's extremely busy, as are many of the listeners of this podast.

I coached Doug online for a season and he did a great job buying in to the training, which culminated in Doug racing well.  

Doug has been coaching himself in the past year and in this podcast we get to learn about his implementation of my coaching approach into his own training, as well as the coaching of his high school team.

Thanks Doug for finding the time to be on the podcast.

Vern Gambetta is one of the premier strength and conditioning coaches  in the world.  But, unlike many of his peers, his roots are in track and field.  He considers himself a coach, first and foremost.

Many of you are familiar with his blog and the balance he shares between the nuts and bolts of helping athletes become better athletes and the art of coaching.

Interviewing Vern is a real treat for me as he’s a coach I’ve looked up to for many years.

 

Vern will be speaking at the Boulder Running Clinic’s 2015 July High School Coaches clinic.  He’ll be presenting in both the formal classroom setting as well as outside in a “learn by doing” session.

Nate Jenkins is our seventh guest on the Run Faster Podcast.

Nate is an American marathon runner who has taken the time to share his training logs over his career at nateruns.blogspot.com.  Nate does a wonderful job explaining why he does what he does.  He’s self effacing and the first to be critical of any mistake he’s made in his training.

Nate finished seventh at the 2008 Olympic Trials, in a star-studded field.  He has a marathon PR of 2:14.

Nate started running seriously in 8th grade and learned by his senior year in high school that high mileage worked for him.  

In this interview he talks about his interpretation of Renato Canova’s training system and how he’s implemented that into his training.  He also discusses his use of workouts like Aussie Quarters and the Mona Fartlek.

This interview runs a few minutes longer than most for the simple fact that I had so many questions for Nate.

Thanks for your time Nate and we wish you the best as you continue your running career.
