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.

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.
