Ryan Hall has run a 59:43 for the half marathon and 2:04:58 for the marathon. But after qualifying for his second Olympic Marathon team in January, the rest of his 2012 season was clouded with injuries and he ended up dropping out of the Olympic Marathon about 11 miles in. Ryan is one of our favorite guests because he is never afraid to talk about his setbacks and how he is dealing with them, physically and psychologically. For 2013 he has a new coach, he’s finally healthy, and he’s about to head off to Kenya to train with the best runners in the world.
Ellie Greenwood had an amazing year in 2012. Not only did she run the London Marathon in 2:43 in April and the Vancouver Marathon in 2:42 a month later, she also took second at the infamous Comrades Marathon in South Africa, and won the Western States 100 for the second year in a row, this time breaking the course record. What a talent!
