In three years, Christina Welsh lowered her marathon time by nearly an hour to 2:33, good enough to become one of the fastest women marathoners in America. We talk about what she’s learned along the way, her next racing goals, and her ultra-high mileage (peaking at 135 miles a week).
Thomas, Meaghan, and Robbe chat about their experience down at the Donna Marathon. Robbe dropped a significant new half marathon PR and Meaghan won her fifth Donna Marathon title in a row, thanks in part to the pacing support of our good friend Ben Johnson. Battling insane 20 mph headwinds is never easy, but the crew was able to toe the line and bring back some impressive results. Thomas also shares his opinions about the Nike Streakfly.
