About this episode

This bonus episode is all about the ups and downs of a running life, filled with actionable advice for every runner. Hosted by Jon Levitt, our guest panel includes Kara Goucher, Briana Boehmer, Noah Droddy, and Sara Vaughn.

In this episode we talk about:

  • combining big goals with a love of the process
  • dealing with “failure” and setbacks
  • why run marathons?
  • defining a great race
  • mental strategies for self-doubt and fear
