How often do you get to go for a run or ride with Will Ferrell? Well, Sunday night Will spent 45 minutes with Huddle and me chatting about his running -the guy ran sub-4:00 at Boston- and his roles as Frank the Tank, Buddy the Elf, Ron Burgundy and Chazz Michael Michaels, among others. You might want to take this interview with Will along with you on your next workout. That just happened!
Desiree Davila ran her first marathon in 2007 in Boston and went 2:44:56. How much has she improved? At the 2011 Boston Marathon she ran the third fastest marathon for an American woman in history with a 2:22:38 and finished a mere two seconds off of the win. How does someone go from 2:44 to 2:22 in the span of four years and also qualify for the 2012 US Olympic Marathon Team? Desi’s formula is pretty damn simple: Talent, dedication, perseverance, and patience.
2:04:58 marathoner Ryan Hall just made his second US Olympic Marathon team in Houston last weekend. This morning we discussed his thoughts on the course and the race and his plans for the lead up to London.
Earlier this summer the folks at ASICS snuck 2:04:58 marathoner Ryan Hall into a hotel in Orlando to surprise their major retailers. I was honored to emcee a classic Q&A with America’s fastest ever marathoner. As Ryan gets ready for the Chicago Marathon, it’s a great time to check out this interview.
On April 18th, Ryan Hall ran 2:04:58 in Boston, the fastest time ever for an American. He talks about how much he loves high fiving the other runners on his way to the start and shares his thoughts on being part of one of the greatest races in marathon history.
Alberto Salazar is a true legend, first as an athlete and now as a coach. His stories from his three New York City Marathon wins, his Boston victory over Dick Beardsley and dealing with the great Henry Rono are fun to listen to. Lance Armstrong has also reached out for a little run coaching and Alberto shared some great insight into Lance’s running prep for triathlon.
Ryan Hall has been training hard to win the Boston Marathon this spring. He came on from Mammoth for a great conversation that really gives you some insight into why this young man is so special.
Kara Goucher was a 2008 Olympian at 10,000 meters where she took tenth in a personal best of 30:55. A few months later, she did her first ever marathon and took third in New York, the first American woman to make the podium there since 1994. In 2009 she took third in Boston where the top three were separated by a total of nine seconds. Later in the year she won the Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon overall-the first PERSON to cross the line- in 1:08:05. GREAT interview.
