"You don't quit. You don't look behind you, and you don't cheat." - Molly Seidel, discussing values she learned from her mom. We can't think of a better guest for our 100th episode than Molly Seidel. To the world, she might be the new face of American marathoning, but privately she is the same person who grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, doesn't take herself too seriously, and is the fiercest of competitors once on a start line. From Foot Locker champion to NCAA champion to Olympic Bronze Medalist, the journey has not been a linear one for her. In fact, she almost quit the sport multiple times before finding her love for it again in late 2019. In this episode, we learn about it all. This episode also represents a passing of the torch as Kara discusses Molly breaking her American course record in New York. You get to be a fly on the wall as the two of them fan-girl each other. Come for that, stay for the fun details about Molly's journey including her running heroes in high school, where and when she decided to race the Olympic Trials, the source of her ferocious nature in races, and near the end, the advice she would now give to the younger Molly who once wrote down her dream to earn an Olympic medal. We love Molly for her integrity and for her fun-loving nature. We need more of both in our sport so we know the future of American marathoning is in very good hands.

Tinman Elite's Drew Hunter is making his fourth appearance on the podcast. I first had him on the show after his first pro season back in 2017 and then we did a live show in Boston in 2018. A lot has happened in his life since then... He's run personal bests of 3:35.90 for 1,500 meters, 7:39.85 for 3,000 meters and 13:17.55 for the 5,000 meters. However, the past year was fairly difficult for him. He raced just once indoors in February and then tore his plantar, which forced him to miss the U.S. Olympic Trials. Tinman Elite also went through a very public breakup with coach Tom Schwartz and now the team is coached by his mother, Joan Hunter. We unpack all of those changes, the comeback from injury and what it was like to stamp his return with a win at the USATF 5K Championships in New York City, where he captured his second national title. My co-host for this episode is Mac Fleet, who has been working hard behind the scenes to also now bring you some of these conversations and other fun video content on The CITIUS MAG YouTube channel.

This week on the show Alyssa & Haley are joined by professional triathlete and 2021 Ironman 70.3 World Champion Lucy Charles-Barclay. Lucy had an incredibly busy race schedule in 2021, competing across many distances and disciplines from Olympic Trials in swimming, to Ironman and sprint distance triathlons, and even a local 10k. She explains how she approaches each race with the mindset that embraces learning from new experiences, and hopes that by jumping into new things it will help to make her a better triathlete. Lucy recently competed in the World Triathlon Championship sprint race in Abu Dhabi, finishing a very impressive 12th amongst a stacked field of short course superstars. She gives us a recap of the race, including how she dealt with the scorching heat, and also gives some of her insider tips for age group athletes who are heading to Abu Dhabi for the ITU Age Group World Championships next year. In the lead-up to the 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Lucy and her team spent a few weeks training at altitude in Cedar City. Lucy tells us about what goes into having such a great team around her to support her in the pursuit of her goals. This team includes her sister Holly, who is a photographer and videographer, and also manages Lucy's social media. Lucy talks about her close bond with her sister and why it's important to her to surround herself with the right people. You can catch Haley & Alyssa's interview with Holley Charles next week!

Lizzy Rountree (episode #53) returns to the pod to talk about her new coach and training for CIM, which will be her first marathon since the Olympic Trials. Lizzy shares how she's evolved as an athlete since her last marathon and what will be different this time around at CIM. Some highlights from our conversation:
Sydney McLaughlin is a two-time Olympic Gold Medal track and field athlete. In the summer of 2021, Sydney set a world record time of 51:46 seconds in the 400 m hurdles in winning gold. She also was a member of the 4x4000 m relay team that captured gold. In 2016, she qualified for the Rio Olympics before her senior year of high school and became the youngest athlete to make the American Olympic track and field team since 1980. At the age of 17, Sydney was on the cover of Sports Illustrated and was deemed as "one of the most dominant high school athletes ever." She was named the Gatorade National Female Athlete of the Year in 2015-16 and 2016-17. Her father Willie was a semi-finalist in the 400 m in the 1984 Olympic Trials and her mom was also a high school runner. On this episode of the podcast, we talked to Sydney about winning Olympic Gold, getting engaged to her fiancé Andre, how her journey of faith has evolved and why she wants to live only for the approval of Christ. --- Looking for a holiday gift idea?

Your favorite mullet miler has finally graced The Drop podcast. Craig Engels is just as cool a guy as he seems on TV and social media (@craigathor), so we're super excited to have him on the pod. We talk about his running career from Ole Miss to Nike, training for the Olympic Trials, RVs, why long-distance sucks, and, of course, fashionable men's hairstyles (32:48). All that and more with Craig, plus the BITR gang recaps Meg's secret marathon mission in Indianapolis.
Cait Keen did it! Cait came back to the Flying Pig Marathon after a tumultuous two years that left her questioning many things about her life and running. She ended the day with a stirring win that pulsated with emotion. Here's what Cait several days before the race that sets the stage for what was to come later: "I've been waiting 2.5 years for a chance to run Cincy again and 610 days to run a marathon since the Olympic Trials. It's felt like a lifetime. I often get told that I'm too hard on myself. I put too much pressure on myself & I have very high expectations. I couldn't have seen coming what happened 9 weeks before my last Flying Pig. Getting attacked by a dog on a long run is not ideal. I couldn't have foreseen a global pandemic, struggling with working from home & being isolated is also not ideal while it's being raved about by others. But in these 2.5 years while it seems like so much has changed, I can tell you that what hasn't is my love for this city, this marathon... I've clawed my way back into shape. I've worked with others to get my mind back to believing in my purpose again. I put this pressure on myself because without pressure there wouldn't be diamonds. Without pressure I wouldn't be me. So have a beer and a Sky Line Chili 3 way waiting for me at the after party. I'm ready to shine!" Follow Cait on Instagram at www.instagram.com/caitsouthkeen.

Olympic Champion and Team Speedo Athlete, Cody Miller, drops in on the SwimSwam podcast revealing his hopes and dreams for his juggernaut YouTube series Cody Miller Adventures. Cody has redefined the language of swimming media, and he's redefined what it means to be a pro swimmer. While Cody owns Olympic gold, his YouTube series deserves a gold medal for his mastery of film and his personal connection to his fans. Cody's transparent and vulnerable--in the most courageous ways. That combination has netted him the biggest swim-audience among YouTubers. Cody gets raw and real, providing context on his U.S. Olympic Trials experience and what's in-store for him as a pro swimmer. Cody unpacks International Swimming League politics in a way that only an active pro with “insider knowledge” can. Lastly he gets personal again sharing his MAKE WAVES moment, and he details his go-to Speedo gear.

Grayson Murphy is the 2019 World Mountain Running Champion, 6th place finisher in the Olympic Trials for the Steeplechase, and a 5X collegiate All American. She's also an environmentalist, mental health advocate and entrepreneur who makes journals for training and life. I met Grayson two years ago at a running trade show and she gave me one of her journals, which I used last year. So, I was very happy to be reconnected to Grayson by our partners at Nuun. I know that most of you don't need an introduction to Nuun. They make electrolyte solutions without sugar. I've used Nuun in my training for years, and am still using them now as I train for the NYC Marathon. I also know that many of the people in our community love Nuun as well-- because I see so many of you posting about it on our social media channels. So huge thanks to Nuun for sponsoring us, and for reconnecting me with Grayson! #EveryMileMatters!
“You have to honor the race by going and trying to do the best you possibly can.” In December 2019, three men — Menso de Jong, Chris Stehula, and Ken Rakestraw — led 72 women to Olympic Trials qualifying times at the California International Marathon. Soon after, they came on the Ali on the Run Show to share their stories. Before CIM, neither Menso, Chris, nor Ken had ever run 2:45 marathons before. But that day, they pulled it off. And, in the process of doing so, they each earned themselves Boston Marathon qualifying times. So now, Menso, Chris, and Ken are back on the Ali on the Run Show for another race recap episode — but this one is different. This time, the only people they were pacing were themselves, and there were plenty of highs, lows, and backward walks along the way. Enjoy hearing about their race day strategies (most of which did not go according to plan), what the rolling start in Boston was really like, and what lessons they learned on the course that day.

In life, you have to know when it's okay to walk away, even from something you love. The end of one journey always leads to the beginning of another. Special guest Chanelle Price joins me to discuss her faith in God and how it helped navigate her through her track and field journey. We talked about everything from multiple injuries, Olympic Trial disappointments, her recent decision to retire, getting engaged and her future. We also discussed her special relationship with Sabrina Stanley on and off the track.Facebook https://www.facebook.com/chanelle.price.3Instagram https://www.instagram.com/cpricerunTwitter https://twitter.com/cpricerunMy recent guest appearance on the Hell Is Full Of Dads Podcast: Click HereIf you'd like to support the show, you can find out how at: https://www.patreon.com/HeelStriker954Intro & Outro produced by https://www.fiverr.com/awwyeahBackground music: Chill Noons by Kroniclehttps://soundcloud.com/the-chemist-10/chill-noons
“Everyone processes things differently. We hoped that it wouldn't take away from the rest of my year but you never know in those moments. To bounce back with a 3:59 (for 1,500m) was like, ‘Hell yeah! I deserve to be doing this and racing at this level and competing. This is what we trained for all year.' It was almost like a rewarding moment coming back from that disappointment...Our conversations were really positive. It was about what you could be excited about ahead. There are world champs the next two years and then an Olympic team. This sport moves quickly and there's a lot more to be excited for right away. That definitely helped turning around on the trials.” Josette Norris is a professional runner for the Reebok Boston Track Club. If track and field had a breakout star of the year award, Josette would be a strong candidate for that. She came into the year with personal bests of 4:10.82 for 1,500 meters and 15:29.34 for 5,000 meters. Now, she's at 3:59.72 for 1,500 meters which is No. 9 on the all-time U.S. list and 14:51.32 for 5,000 meters which is No. 10 on the all-time U.S. list. She also ran 4:22.71 for the mile this year. Her best races came after she finished 8th in the Olympic Trials final for the 5,000 meters despite having the fastest time of the year going into the race. She candidly discusses what it was like to overcome that disappointment and then go on an absolute tear, which included a third-place finish in the Diamond League final. Her trip to Europe was the first time she left the country. You'll also get to enjoy plenty of fun New Jersey banter. So if you're in the Jersey or Pennsylvania area, get yourself a cup of Wawa coffee and enjoy this chat which I'd love to dedicate to Josette's mom, who is a huge fan of the pod.

“My goals and expectations when I joined the team was committing to the Olympic Trials…but we were all changed through the pandemic. Who I am as a 24-year-old joining a professional team versus me as a 27-year-old kind of living through this high-end running thing, one of my number one goals is I don't want to just be stuck on the domestic mile circuit. If I'm going to do this, I want to do it right. And I was pretty bummed that my body tipped the other end of the scale and couldn't quite figure it out…I think if I committed to keep going and training in the environment that I was in, it kind of would have been the same cycle, so I was like, ‘You know what, this might not be the most prudent move, but I'm going to end this and start a new chapter,' so that's kind of what I've been doing this summer, is figuring out what that chapter looks like.” My conversation this week is with Dana Giordano. She's a top middle distance runner on the track who competed in the 5000m at this summer's Olympic Trials. She also hosts the popular podcast More than Running with Dana, where she sits down and talks with some of the most inspirational and insightful women in running from athletes and coaches to insiders and advocates. In this episode, we talked about where she's at right now and rediscovering the love for running after feeling distraught following the Olympic Trials. She told me about living in Singapore as a kid and developing a love for travel. We spoke about the professional side of the sport and the challenges of making it as a top-level athlete today.

This week I had the opportunity to talk with Matt Gonzales. He ran for St. Michael's and Santa Fe High and then UNM, with 7 NCAA All-American honors to his name at UNM. He also ran professionally for Nike and competed at 2 US Olympic Trials. Matt talks about his influences, including his dad and coaches, as well as the relationships he built. He talks about his time running and the challenges he faced, but also that he has come out the other side. He talks about why he left competitive running and why he hasn't looked back. Matt is very open and talks about loving competition and not so much the training, and so much more. It was a great time talking about his journey and his joy in talking about his sons. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I had recording it. A lot of this episode is about finding peace within yourself. Your perspective has a lot to do with your outlook. So think about your goals and think about what is important. As the weather cools it's important to remember to dress in layers, get a good warm-up, and keep running, New Mexico.
We sat down with 3x World Jr Record holder and 2020 Olympic semi-finalist, Matt Sates. For 18 years of age, Sates has a plethora of swim knowledge and insight which he was kind enough to share with us on today's podcast. Sates breaks down all 3 of his world Jr record performances as well as other races throughout the world cup and what he has to do to get the best out of himself in each race. The South African Olympic also discusses training with Chad le Clos for 3 weeks before their Olympic Trials (and racing 20x200 best average), why he purposefully doesn't lift, and coming to Georgia to compete in the NCAA this coming winter.

"Fail" Forward Friday is back and we are brining you stories from two amazing people - Jared Ward and Maddie Alm. First up is Jared Ward. Jared is an Olympian, USATF running circuit champion, NCAA All-American, and one of the best and most consistent American runners of this generation. But don't let all of that fool you. Jared's story of "failure" will resonated with runners of any ability. In the second part of the show we hear from Maddie Alm. Maddie is a pro runner who trains with Team Boss and she is having a wonderful 2021. She made the final of the women's 5k at the Olympic Trials, ran a 15:19 in the 5k at the Track Meet in May, and finished 14th in a stacked field at the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler in September. Like Jared, Maddie recalls moments in her college experience that set her on the path to get to where she is today. *Yes, you read that correctly - the "Fail" in quotes.* For so many of us there have been times in our lives when we thought we had failed, or worse, that we were failures. Those moments can leave of questioning everything that came before and whether or not we should continue down our chosen path. Then, if we persist we may realize that with time those setbacks can be a gift. Rather than holding us down those "failures" prove to be a catalyst for growth. Not merely to a level which we have already reached, but one that exceeds everything that came before.

It's important to focus on your game plan, staying humble when succeeding and staying hungry to achieve more.

"It takes a lot to get out of your comfort zone, especially in the pole vault. Because it is scary and because there is a fear element, you want to hold onto your comfort zone so badly...Changing things really is not easy. There were a lot of tears. I always bought in. My gut led me to Ashland. My gut sent me to Brad (Walker). It hasn't been wrong yet. I knew that I was in the right place because of the way he described it. He made it so simple. I'm in control of what I'm doing so if I focus on X, Y and Z, the heights will come. He totally changed the mental game for me, which then allowed me to change the technical things. It took all of that time to make that happen. Especially in this generation, people want immediate gratification and results. I'm very much like that. I don't like waiting for things. I'm really happy that I didn't make the team in 2016 because I would not have done that. I would not have gone that far out of my comfort zone. I wouldn't have let someone else challenge me that way. I'm grateful that I took the leap and my gut led me to where it is.” Katie Nageotte is the Olympic gold medalist in the pole vault. She is one of three American women to take gold in the event at the Games. In this episode, there's plenty of Ohio talk because if you've followed her on social media she's been parading around the medal all over Cleveland. The Olmsted Falls native has thrown out the first pitch at the Indians game, given a pep talk at the Browns practice and been honored by state officials. We discuss her journey and success at Ashland University at the Division II level and what pushed her to keep going as a professional pole vaulter. As a pro, she finished 5th at the U.S. Olympic Trials in 2016 which led her to make a change and team up with Brad Walker as her coach. Over the past five years, she saw major improvement under the 2007 world champion's guidance. She made the 2018 World Indoor and 2019 World outdoor teams. A breakthrough in 2020 and 2021 suddenly made her the Olympic gold medal favorite. She discusses how that all happened and how she managed the pressure. At the 2020 Games, she missed on her first two tries at 4.5 meters so there was added pressure there. Then, she managed to turn it around. Listening to her recounting her experience in Tokyo is pretty thrilling so I hope you enjoy it.

“It's refreshing because I spent quite a long time in my career thinking about being in the top 1%. Being able to pull back and realize that there is this joy and enjoyment that people have to go out…They may not have a reason to get up other than to be with some other people or have time for themselves in the chaotic space that is New York. It was nice to engage with running in a different way. That's why it brings me a refreshment and a perspective that there are so many different stories and reasons why people are doing this and it doesn't always have to be about making it to the very upper echelon.” For this episode, we welcome Rebeka Stowe.

If there's one thing in life we must remember, failure and disappointment should not stop us from trying again. We can't allow it to let us give up on our dreams. Things don't always come easy and you should expect the unexpected along the way.

"Time moves forward. There is the next step and there is an action to be taken...It's no fun to have a disappointment but you fully control what happens next. Your decisions and actions can make whatever happens next...so why not make something good of it or at least try?" We kick off the new season of 'More Than Running' with Kate Grace, who is coming off one of the best seasons of any American middle distance runner. After finishing seventh in the women's 800 meter final at the U.S. Olympic Trials in June, she picked herself back up to run four sub-1:58 performances in the event including a personal best of 1:57.20 (which puts her at No. 8 on the U.S. all-time list). She also finished second in the Diamond League final in Zurich. In her conversation with Dana, they discuss how she overcame the disappointment and her lessons on how she makes herself feel the most powerful and confident version of herself on the starting line.

“If all that mattered to me was [to run] the best time possible in two weeks then yes, I'd probably go into the other field and just run with some people who I know are right around my fitness level, but luckily I've had fun at Boston a couple times and I realize that's not all there is. It's not only about squeaking out every second, it's about having an awesome experience and I'm pretty pumped to compete. I think in the best way possible, when I think about that last stretch by BU and how horrible it is and how painful it can be to try to muster…you've got like two miles to go and you're like, ‘I just wanna be done.' My dream would be that there's someone ahead of me and they're another Masters runner that has a number on their back and I'm like, ‘I gotta catch that guy,' because that's what also makes it super fun.” Peter Bromka, who first appeared on Episode 92 of the podcast back in 2019, comes back on the show to geek out on all things Boston Marathon with me. Both of us will be competing in this year's race on Monday, October 11, and Peter will be in the elite field as one of the top-ranked Masters runners, which is super cool.

Peter's also got a great newsletter called The Positive Split, which you can subscribe to at PeterBromka.com. We spent the entirety of this episode talking about Boston, how we're feeling in the final couple weeks of training leading up to the race, what we're most looking forward to—and anxious about—at this year's event, the return of major marathons in general, Boston being held in the fall for the first time, and a lot more.

As a professional runner, getting a sponsorship can be a big deal. Whether it's clothing and gear, races and travel, media opportunities or more, every little bit helps. Unfortunately, in a sport that isn't as popular and funded as other professional sports, running provides limited opportunities, making it harder to get selected by brands.

We discuss: The breaking news that there actually was official selection criteria, and it was technically followed. The significance of 2000 Trials as the worst thing that has ever happened ever, the controversy of the selection process, the low point this represented in athlete-first commentary, and just...the Bela of it all Shannon's comeback What if Atler had been able to compete on the "new" vault?

"That's honestly been the biggest change I made this year: Just mentally being so much more prepared, so much happier and just felt ready with myself. I wasn't really focused on what anyone else was doing. I knew I was ready. I think there were a few big things we worked on. I have such a perfectionist nature. It was super innate probably and then I grew up in a sport that just sort of cultivated that in gymnastics. The whole premise of the sport is perfection. We really tackled that. We realized it wasn't just in terms of running that trait was coming out. It's probably been my whole life. Whenever I get into a scenario, especially in training, where someone is pushing the pace or it's playing out differently than I think it should be, what tools do I have or what can I do to handle that vs. going into a panic mode – which is what was starting to happen pretty frequently." Olympic and world championship steeplechase silver medalist Courtney Frerichs re-joins the show. The last time she was on was in 2018 after she broke the American record in 9:00.85 at the Monaco Diamond League. This was recorded in August just after she became the first American woman to run under nine minutes in the steeplechase. In 2019, she had what she believes to be a disappointing season that ended with a sixth-place finish at the World Championships just two years after taking silver behind Emma Coburn. When the pandemic wiped away the 2020 outdoor season, she didn't do a steeplechase workout at all. She took a break from training for the event and then had an injury in December. You'll learn more about that and also how the two steeplechase races before the Olympic Trials set the blueprint for one of the best performances by an American at the Tokyo Olympics. In Japan, she took the lead after a kilometer into the race and tried holding on but was passed in the final lap by Uganda's Peruth Chemutai. Frerichs ended up with silver, which is the best performance by a female steeplechase at the Games since the event was added in 2008. You'll be put in her shoes for that race and hear about Shalane Flanagan's text message to her before the race + much more. At the Pre Classic just a few weeks later, she lowered her American record to 8:57.77 and then took third at the Diamond League final in Zurich after we recorded.
Today's guest made history in Tokyo this summer, becoming the first woman to medal in springboard diving at the Olympics since Kelly McCormick won Bronze 33 years ago in Seoul, Korea in 1988. Krysta Palmer made her first Olympic team this summer at the age of 29. Watching her smile and giggle at the podium with her Bronze Medal proudly hanging around her neck warmed hearts all over the country. Krysta's positivity is infectious and her perseverance throughout her journey to get to the Olympic podium is absolutely inspiring. Today she opens up about the injuries that took her out of contention in the sport of trampoline, what it was like to start a brand new sport at the age of 20, and she walks us through her extraordinary adventure in Tokyo, from a close call in the preliminary round to the very moment she realized she had medaled. Krysta offers mindset tips all along the journey, and she shares with us her favorite way to process both the good and the bad so that she can keep coming back stronger. Krysta begins with her unique journey in sports, and reflects on coming back stronger from her recurring injuries, as well as how she ultimately found diving at the age of 20. She talks about transitioning her skills from trampoline to diving, working with her coach, Jianli You, to change certain habits, and entering the 2016 Olympic Team Trials following her graduation from the University of Nevada. Krysta tells Laura about a training trip to China that served as a turning point in her path to becoming an Olympian, as well as how her own experience as a coach has helped her as an athlete, and what she learned from competing in the 2017 and 2019 World Championships (her first international meet). She explains how her mindset to learn and grow from setbacks has helped her through the pandemic, and shares the moving story of receiving her Olympic ring from Laura. You'll hear about Krysta's memorable experience at the Tokyo Olympics, how her faith keeps her grounded, and the surreal and exciting moment she realized she had medaled in Tokyo. Krysta's honesty and perseverance throughout today's conversation are sure to motivate and inspire as she shares her incredible journey, and everything she has overcome to be able to do what she loves to do. Episode Highlights: Krysta's journey in sports, beginning with gymnastics and trampoline at a young age Coming back stronger from her heartbreaking injuries and finding diving at the age of 20 Transitioning her skills from trampoline to diving, changing certain habits, learning new dives on the fast track Entering the 2016 Olympic Team Trials following her graduation from the University of Nevada Her training trip to China in 2016, and how it brought her closer to becoming an Olympian The difference between platform and springboard diving, and Krysta's transition from platform to springboard Supporting her athletic training after college through coaching, and how this has helped her become a better athlete Her experience at the World Championships in 2017 and 2019 Learning and growing the most from disappointments or poor competitions How this mentality helped her make the most of trials and tribulations brought on by the pandemic Training through injuries and her family's support throughout her career Krysta's very special memory of receiving her Olympic ring from Laura Her unique experience at the Tokyo Olympics The importance of Krysta's faith The surreal and exciting experience of realizing she had medaled in Tokyo How Krysta continues to process her accomplishment and what the next season of her life looks like Continuing her education and studying toward an MBA Quotes: “At the age of five, when I was young, I really really had this lifelong dream of being an Olympian one day.” “You're always having to use your visual awareness to spot where you are. And make changes based on where you are. So I learned that through trampoline, and that actually really progressed well into my diving career.” “I've had two big struggles in learning how to make a proper entry. And also learning how to get the rhythm and the timing with the springboard, because also trampoline is very quick - quick twitch muscle work.” “I competed platform in the 2016 Olympic Trials because we weren't quite there yet with springboard. And my coach had always said, Give it time. Because springboard diving...you need time to develop the skill of it.” “I came into the team mid-semester, so in January. And I had to learn all my springboard dives for 1-meter/3-meter before Conference in February.” “I think the biggest thing was just trusting my coach [Jianli You], because I knew that she has the knowledge and the skill to teach me, whatever it is. I'm learning and I have the talent to try it. And it only takes me trying it to learn something new.” “That was the trip that made me stronger as a diver and as a person.” “I really gained a whole other level of respect for my coach at that time, because I really saw how respected she is amongst all the Chinese coaches and athletes.” “For me, it really made me appreciate my sport and my country and our freedom to choose to be able to do sports.” “I think that was the biggest takeaway for me from the trials is just feeling like I fit in. But I know that there's still more in me and I still need to learn more in order to get to that point.” “We really did take a step back from platform at that time. Then springboard started to pick up, and I was competing in it at all the Nationals and getting better and better.” “The springboard is very similar to trampoline, and I can do a lot of the same skills that I would typically do on a trampoline as well.” “I was coaching our club team. And that's really the majority of where I got money in order to survive and make a living. And so I was starting to see things from a coaching perspective, which actually helped me as an athlete as well.” “That's been a big learning lesson as I transition from a college athlete to now a professional athlete, is just to really pay attention to everything that surrounds me as an athlete, and what's going to help me achieve my dream.” “My first ever international competition was the World Championships in 2017.” “Coming back from that competition, I really had done a lot of processing and journaling, writing things down of what went wrong. What I learned was my mentality going into this event - I really learned that I had put a lot of pressure on myself. And nobody else did that. I was the one that did it to myself.” “I really needed to learn from that. And not necessarily get dragged down by the failure of it. But stepping into, kind of, that failure and learning from it, and then growing from it, and taking the next step into the next chapter, and facing what happened… These competitions were actually the ones that I've learned and grown the most from.” “I think my mentality through all my injuries really helped me through the pandemic, because it was really, Be stronger than you were before the injury. And coming into the pandemic, I could see it two different ways - I could see it as a disappointment and as a setback. Or I could see it as an opportunity and an area to grow, and another year of training, which is really beneficial for me because I'm still a new diver.” “I really chose to look at it that way and took that mentality from the injury standpoint and said, Hey, I'm going to be stronger than I was before the pandemic.” “For me, it's a performance. I love getting out there and just showing off what I love to do.” “That was just a beautiful, beautiful moment for me to receive [my Olympic ring] from you. And you're telling the story - I'm still getting chills because it's special for me.” “For me, what keeps me grounded is reading the Bible and getting my time with God.” “At that point, [Coach Jianli You] knew that I had medaled. And so I gave her this big hug. And she just held me tight. And she just said, We did it. We did it. And so that's just - that was a beautiful moment.” “I don't think this is my peak performance as a diver... I know that there's so much more that I still have left in me.” Show Links The Pursuit of Gold Homepage Life at 10 Meters: Lessons from an Olympic Champion 5 Smart Strategies to Confidence Conquer Your Fear in 5 Days Laura's Social Media: Laura's Instagram Laura's Facebook page Krysta's Social Media: Krysta Palmer's Instagram Cheer for Krysta Facebook Page Krysta Palmer's Twitter @PalmerKrysta

We sat down with Trenton Julian, who recently had a sensational showing at the 2021 Speedo Summer Championships, highlighted by a 1:54 200 fly personal best. Julian takes us through his last 6 months of racing from the NCAA championships (where he had more pressure as a leader and point-scorer on the team than previous years) to the Olympic Trials, where he made 3 finals and was on the cusp of qualifying for his first Olympic team in both butterfly events. Julian explains how finding a balance of being prepared and enjoying the process has led to some of his best races.

MINI-COMMISSIONS From Jay: A mini-commission on America's most enduring gymnast of the 1980-1984 era: Julianne McNamara. We discuss her status as the only American Olympic bars champion, her five 10.0s from the 1984 Olympics, the excellence of her compulsory bars routine, whether she would have won at a fully attended Olympics, and why more people should do her eponymous skill. From Sue: Imagine a gymnast-led revolt a la Stick It in support of Morgan Hurd not being advanced to Olympic Trials. We discuss the chances something like this could actually happen, then go full fan fiction on how it could have played out. Plus Jessica describes the time she actually tried to make a gymnastics revolt happen.

"I don't want my motivation to be other people. There's part of me that realized that's what I was leading up to the trials. I want to be more than a mullet and a mustache. I want to be more than just making teams." Shortly after finishing second in the Prefontaine Classic men's international mile, Craig Engels sat down in the Magic Boost tent to briefly chat about how he's found fun in the sport after finishing fourth at the Olympic Trials in the men's 1,500 meters and missing the Tokyo Olympics by one spot. He addresses the recent rumors that he may be contemplating retirement. We kept this conversation fairly short since we'll likely record a much longer episode in person, if Craig competes at the Fifth Avenue Mile in New York City in September.
“I said, ‘The best thing for me right now is to just choose life, and to step away.'” Tomorrow, Robyn Stevens will make her Olympic debut, representing Team USA in the 20K race walk. In June, Robyn won her event at the Olympic Track & Field Trials, officially becoming the fastest female walker in the country. And on this episode, she talks about the long road to becoming an Olympian, which included a 17-year break and retirement from the sport to recover from a severe eating disorder. But now, "Walkin' Robyn" is healthy, cruising at a 7:40/mile pace, and becoming an Olympian at age 38. Plus, Robyn offers a bit of "Race Walk 101" (race walking: it's not just fast walking, it's definitely not slow running, and it comes with lots of rules and regulations!), and shares her excitement about getting to head to Tokyo to compete with her boyfriend, fellow race walk champion and Team USA member Nick Christie.
