It is July! Summer is moving at lightning speed and soon, fall race season, however that will look, will be in full swing. That means you must be in full training if you are doing a fall race.
My guest in this episode is Letty Lundi, co-host with her husband Ryan, of the Marathon Running Podcast by We Got the Runs. Letty started running in her mid-20s and started marathoning in 2009 during law school and completed about 20 of them all around four hours. She became an immigration attorney and kept running marathons here and there, and started taking running seriously after her second child because she wanted to qualify for Boston.
She sought out a coach and started really training for the first time and ran a 3:23 at the 2019 Mountains 2 Beach Marathon. Later that same year, she PRd with a 3:18 at the Chicago Marathon and she plans to meet or exceed that time this fall in Boston!
Me, your host, is also getting serious about running and training for a half marathon in August at altitude and a whole lot of downhill. Feels good to finally have a running goal. Now if my body will only feel that good!!!
Oh yeah, Benjamin Pachev ran a 1:06:33 half-marathon at the Utah Valley Half-Marathon last month. And he ran them in those funny-looking clogs, Crocs. And the whole family wears them. This is amazing.

Train hard, run harder, and be well. And remember to be kind to others, even if some are not kind to you. It's good for the soul!

Inspirational Running Quote
"That’s what running does to lives. It’s not just exercise. It’s not just achievement. It’s a daily discipline that has nothing to do with speed, weight, social status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, where you live, what car you drive, or whether anyone anywhere loves you. It’s about the slow and painful process of being the best you can be." ~ Martin Dugard
