On today’s show, I’m joining up for a round two with Michael Deza.

When Michael was last on the show, we talked about his path to finding his calling as a runner as well as the great year of running he had in 2015.

One of his big goals for 2015 was to qualify for both the Boston and NYC marathons, which he did. Now that he’s back on the show, I’m interested in hearing how Boston went for him earlier this year and how he sees the rest of 2016 shaking out.

Michael’s overal Boston Marathon experience was very positive, even though it solidified for him that he wanted to focus more on becoming an elite half marathoner instead of an elite marathoner. Read more

From the time she started running in middle school, she’s always tended excel at the longer distances. As a professional, she continues to excel at the longer distances. Currently, she’s most comfortable in the 50 mile range, but who knows what the future holds in terms of running even longer distances.

During my chat with Emily we talked about her running career to date, continuing to learn about what it takes to run longer distances, the atmosphere surrounded an event like the Olympic Trials, and a whole lot more.

Neely Spence Gracey Interview: Putting the Past in the Past and Moving Forward

Neely Spence Gracey has had running in her blood since the day she was born, and she’s definitely starting to come into her own.

Neely may have been born to be a runner on the big stage, but since leaving college and turning pro things haven’t always been smooth sailing. Solid training periods with good race results were too often followed by injuries and long periods of recovery, and that cycle repeated itself a few times.

But she stuck with the sport, even during the lowest of the low times, but she’s put together a good stretch of being injury free and (hopefully) she’s kicked the injury bug for good!

We really had a great chat, and I know you’re going to enjoy it. Here are some of the highlights from our run: Read more
