Description
Keep Running is delighted to be partnering with TRIBE for April.  This week Rachel and Armana are joined by the man tasked with the demanding job of pacing the elite women to the Olympic Qualifying time in the recent British Marathon Trials, Kevin Quinn. Kev though, is so much more than a pacer. He is a very, very decent runner in his own right boasting times of 2:22 for the marathon, 66:37 in the half marathon, 30:32 in the 10k and 14:37 in the 5k. These times were all posted after under going major heart surgery to repair four holes in Kev's heart which were found by chance after running a 2:25 marathon and feeling a little 'off'.  Kev is also a coach for Team Real Runners, the running group he founded and which now boasts an Olympian coach in the form of Scott Overall in its ranks.  Kev found running early on in his life, as he was tragically spurred on to take up the sport after his sister Lucy passed away at the age of just three years old, he took up the sport to run in her name and he has not looked back ever since.  Link to Cardiac Risk In The Young - https://www.c-r-y.org.uk/  Tribe - This episode is sponsored by TRIBE.  To try a pack of TRIBE nutrition products, head to wearetribe.co/keeprunning and claim your first pack of delicious energy and protein bars for ust £2 (including shipping) by using the code TRIBEKEEPRUNNING
