As a fan of the sport, I was excited to speak with the following two athletes.
Steph Davies won the British Olympic marathon trials and qualified for the Tokyo Olympics and will represent Great Britain, she finished in 2:27:16 (this interview starts at 2:45).
Aoife Cooke won the Cheshire Elite Marathon and qualified for the Tokyo Olympics and will represent Ireland, she finished in 2:28:36 (this interview starts at 24:17). To listen to the previous conversation with Aoife check out episode 12.
Both athletes overcame different challenges within their running careers, which can get forgotten when both athletes looked in such good form earning the Olympic marathon qualifying times.
In both conversations we dive into the training build up, the race, and the work leading towards Olympics.
I wish them both a strong Olympic build up and great marathon race experience.
