This episode is all about celebrating Shalane Flanagan as she announced her retirement this past week. Shalane needs know introduction because her list of accomplishments is long including 3 NCAA titles, 18 US titles, 4 Olympic teams, and 4 major marathon podiums including one of each podium spot at NYC - 2nd, 1st, and 3rd.
After a brief intro, I turn to a discussion on the top 10 things that we can learn from Shalane Flanagan's career to apply in our own training. The discussion includes input from Kara Goucher who provided the #1 thing she learned in her time training with Shalane. The top 10 list includes everything from practical training advice to ways to gain a mental edge. While few among us have Shalane's talent, there is so much to learn from the consistent hard work that she invested in her career.
