Lee Troop is my guest on the fifth episode of the Run Faster Podcast.

Lee represented Australia in three different Olympics.  He broke Ron Clarke’s Austrailian national record in the 5k, a record that stood for 33 years.  He then moved up to the marathon where he ran a personal best of 2:09.

In 2013 Lee finished 15th in the Boston Marathon, running 2:17, at age 40.

 Lee is the founder of the Boulder Track Club and coach of the reigning women’s US cross country champion, Laura Thweatt.

Adam Goucher is our fourth guest on the Run Faster Podcast.  Adam won the 1993 Footlocker National Championship as a high school athlete, beating Meb Keflezighi. He attended the University of Colorado and ran for Coach Mark Wetmore.  Adam finished third at the NCAA Championships his freshman year, then went on to win the meet as a senior, a season that is chronicled in the book Running with the Buffaloes.

 

Adam became an Olympian in 2000 and finished 13th in the finals of the 5,000m.  Adam has run 8:12 for two-miles and 13:10 for 5,000m.  Adam is co-author with Tim Catalono of the book Run the Edge.  You may know Adam’s wife, Kara Goucher, a fixture on the American running scene for many years.

Bob Kennedy joins us for the third episode of the Run Faster Podcast.  Bob won both the high school national championship, which was then called the Kinney National Championship, and won the NCAA Division I Cross Country Champions as both a freshman and a senior.

 

Bob Kennedy was the first non-African to break 13 minutes for 5k.  Many of you may remember when he took the lead of the penultimate lap of the 5,000m at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, GA.  Some runners may have even raced in the shoe Nike named after him, the Zoom Kennedy.
