About this episode

This episode of For The Long Run was recorded live at the 2024 Boston Marathon in conjunction with PUMA. The panel includes Olympians Bill Rodgers, Molly Seidel, Dakotah Lindwurm, and is hosted by Jon Levitt. The conversation is inspired by PUMA’s “see the game through their eyes” campaign, understanding the sport of running through the eyes of elite athletes, as well as highlighting the importance of health for lifelong running. 

In this episode we talk about:

  • trail running for injury prevention
  • dealing with adversity in training and racing 
  • the power of self-belief
  • Shoe technology: from Bill Rogers racing in the 60s and 70s versus today’s athletes 
  • PUMA’s distance running rebrand
