Trish Trout Doesn’t Like Being Told That She Can’t Do Something

Today I have the pleasure of running a few easy Miles with Ms. Trish Trout.

Trish Trout Thumbs Up

Trish has been a regular in the Facebook group for a long time, and we’ve chatted it up on Twitter several times over the past couple of years.

Honestly, this episode should have happened quite a while ago!

She’s Never Been the Fastest, But So What?

Trish started running in high school as part of the cross country team, but she wasn’t exactly one of the faster girls on the time.

In fact, more often than not she was bringing up the rear.

After high school, she hung up the running shoes for a number of years and eventually found her way back to the sport.

At one point, a friend told Trish that there was no way that she could run a marathon, and Trish’s competitive/stubborn side took over!

Big City Marathons or Bust!

As of our chat, Trish has run four marathons. But as of this episode/post going live, she has run five!

All of the marathons that Trish has run have been World Majors: Boston x2, Chicago x2, and now New York.

Trish is drawn to the big marathons in large part because of the atmosphere. The excitement of the athletes and the enthusiasm of the spectators is something that Trish enjoys. And those components aren’t always present in the smaller races.

Trish also said that, as a slower runner, she feels a bit less conscientious about her pace in a race with thousands of runners.

Since she’s already knocked half of the Majors off the list, I had to ask about taking a run at the other 3.

Trish is open to the idea, but far from sold on it.

For her, running Tokyo isn’t that appealing.

While Trish has no plans currently to knock off Tokyo, Berlin, and London, you just never know what the future may hold!

    I’m wondering how someone considered a slow runner gets to run Boston. Some of us are regulars on podiums in smaller races, but still don’t qualify for Boston. Great story about a dedicatedly runner whom a lot of people can relate to…except that she gets to run big races as a “slow” runner. Not many of us can relate to that!

      We all have the opportunity to run those big races even if we aren’t fast enough to qualify: just have to run as a charity runner and raise some cash for a good cause!
