This is easily one of my favorite episodes of the Run Faster podcast.
Drew Ryun, son of Jim Ryun, is a student of the sport and someone who I love talking track with. Drew and I meet through running camps as he asked me to speak at the Jim Ryun Running Camp roughly 10 years ago. What a treat.
In this interview we are simply two track geeks talking track, which should be informative for both the long term running fan and new runners alike. We talk a bit about our own running, but obviously much of the conversation is Drew sharing stories about his father, one of the greatest milers of all time.
Thanks so much for your time Drew!

This episode is a recording of a webinar I recently had the pleasure of doing for readers of my newsletter. While the focus of the webinar is on 5k and 10k training, many of the questions apply to all distances. Many of the questions focused on how to organize a week of training and/or a training cycle, which are both important if you're going to race to your potential.
This webinar was a lot of fun and I will definitely be doing more webinars in the future.

Noah Droddy is a thoughtful, serious and colorful character in US distance running. While most people know more about his race day looks - long hair, sunglasses, backwards hat and mustache - than his PRs, Noah is quickly becoming one of the top distance runners in the US, with great performances at the US 10-mile championships in 2016 and the 2017 Houston Half Marathon.
This interview was a lot of fun and I look forward to watching him and his fellow Root Running Project teammates in some workouts in Boulder this spring.
