Molly Huddle originally joined me for a chat back in Episode 33.
She was the first professional track athlete to join me on the show, and I’ve enjoyed going back and listening to this episode a couple of times. When I was thinking of which episodes to include in the list of Best Of episodes, this chat with Molly was one of the first to make the cut.
In college, she was a 10 time All-American. Since turning pro, she’s competed in races in Europe and represented the United States at various international meets, including the 2012 Olympics. And earlier this summer, improved upon her own personal best and American record time in the 5,000 meters in a time of 14:42:64.
We covered a lot of ground in our conversation, from injuries, to running, to what it’s like to run in the Olympics. Here are a few of the highlights of our conversation:
- On 3 different occasions, a broken bone in her foot sidelined her during her college career.
- What it feels like when running becomes your full time job.
- The pressure cooker of the US Olympic Trials
- The Olympic Games from an athlete’s perspective.
- The possibility of racing longer distances, including the marathon.
- What does Molly Huddle like to do when she isn’t running?
Connect with Molly online, and let her know what you enjoyed most about our conversation today. You can find her:
