Ryan Hall was the first American runner to go under an hour for the half marathon (59:43), has gone 2:04:58 at Boston, and is a two-time Olympian. When Meb Keflezighi broke away from the field in Boston last week, Ryan became the patron of the peloton to help keep the American runners in the chase pack from helping to close the gap. Ryan, as always, was a great interview as we discussed Boston, his time training in Ethiopia, and his plans for the rest of 2014.

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.
