    Ep 47 - Interview with Liam Adams

    Ep 47 - Interview with Liam Adams

    Liam Adams continues to perform at the highest level and race out of his skin when competing for Australia at the major championships, with one of the most courageous and ballsy efforts we've ever witnessed when attacking early off the front over at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. Liam had learnt from previous race experiences against the East Africans, that allowing them to control the race with a fartlek type style of racing, would only lessen his chances of a good result. Liam was confident that settling into an early fast rhythm that was sustainable for the distance, would set himself up for his best performance on the day and throw a cat among the pigeons for the Africans. Liam gritted it out like he always does and was closing in on the runner in third spot with the gap to the bronze medal narrowing with every stride as they neared the finish line but unfortunately ran out of real estate and finished seven seconds behind in fourth. Liam is already thinking about the road to Paris in two years times that would see him pull on the marathon green and gold singlet for his third consecutive Olympic Games to match his Comm Games record. Liam is one of the most successful runners and athletes Australia has had, and will no doubt comfortably break the 2:10 barrier in the months to come to make his spot on the Australian Olympic Team non-discretionary! All the best Liam:)

    Ep 46 - Interview with Louis McAfee

    Ep 46 - Interview with Louis McAfee

    Louis McAfee was excited to be finally lacing up for his debut marathon on the Gold Coast after the cancellation of last year's race only a few days out due to a three day lockdown to mitigate the spread of Covid. Louis had an injury free marathon prep and a solid half marathon result in Noosa 5 weeks earlier running a 64:51 and was ready to finally convert all the training load into the marathon performance he knew he was capable of as well as answering all the internal and external questions that come attached with a debut marathon performance. Louis ended up executing a fine running performance finishing 4th in 2:17:43, superb! Juggling the responsibities of full-time work and a family, Louis will continue to work away at improving on his running capabilities with the goal of running a Sub 2:15 in his next outing. All the best Louis, we have your back mate.

    Ep 45 - Interview with Tim Vincent

    Ep 45 - Interview with Tim Vincent

    Tim Vincent is in the fourth year of a Clinical Exercise Physiology Degree, and like most elite runners in Australia, is juggling the training load that's required to maintain his position as one of the talented distance runners we currently have in the country with study and or work requirements. Tim represented Australia at the World University Cross Country Championships in Portugal in March this year finishing a very respectable 9th in very challenging conditions and then went on to win the 10000mtr Oceania Championships in a humid Mackay in June. Tim has won and podiumed in many road races throughout Australia over the last couple of years and all indicators are that he will continue to do so. Tim has a busy few months ahead of him, starting with the Sydney 10k tomorrow, July 24th, then a couple of national road races before heading back overseas to race a torturous, lung and leg busting Red Bull 400 event and have another crack at the Copenhagen Half in September that he raced back in 2019. Tim is a switched on Brisbane Boy that knows what he wants, and I don't believe he will allow anything to get in his way from achieving his running aspirations. Great chat with a great guy, all the best Tim!

    Ep 44 - Interview with Aidan Hobbs

    Ep 44 - Interview with Aidan Hobbs

    Aidan Hobbs is a very capable and versatile runner that has been on the rise for a couple of years now. Running 15 of the last 28 consecutive City2Surf's dressed as Superman is maybe where the extra strength lies. Since running 44:36 and finishing 9th at the 2019 City2Surf, Aidan has gone on to run a personal best on the track from the 800mtrs to the 10000mtrs including the 3000mtr steeplechase and on the road from the 10k to the Marathon where he recently ran a superb 2:20 on the Gold Coast improving on the 2:23 ran there in 2019. Aidan decided, maybe lured by the prize purse and offerings, to back up and defend his title in the gruelling 30k Brisbane Trail Ultra the following weekend. Aidan was on track, pun intended, in defending his title before encountering a few traffic and direction issues that bled enough time to cost him the race where he finished in second place. At the age of 35, Aidan is in the middle of a BIG purple patch that is probably better referred to as an "acreage" than a patch. Aidan, with the support of his wife Peta, will proceed to juggle the responsibilities of full time work and three young children to continue his upwards trajectory on the performance graph that will allow him to better his personal bests over the distances. With his commitment to hard work, professionalism and being surrounded by a great team, all is possible! Best of luck Aidan.

    Ep 43 - Interview with Michael Daly

    Ep 43 - Interview with Michael Daly

    Michael is a chippy from Canberra who decided after a few years away from running, where he had competed in the 8 and 1500mtr along with national cross country, would try his hand at the road marathon discipline. Mick ran his first marathon in Melbourne 2013 running a 2:52 setting up a pattern of substantially lowering his finishing time over the following 4 years with the end result being a 2:30 on the Gold Coast in 2017. Mick maintained his strength and interest in running by training and competing on the trails in marathon and ultra marathon distances where he consistently performed at the highest level and was often spotted standing on the podium at post race presentations. One of Micks better performances was a 5th place at 6ft track in 2018 running a 3:33 and backing up with a 2nd at the UTA50. With a 2:27 just ran on the Gold Coast, Mick has his sights set on lowering that time in Melbourne come October and working towards that Sub 2:20 barrier that only a talented few will ever experience, all the best Mick.

    Ep 42 - Interview with Rorey Hunter

    Ep 42 - Interview with Rorey Hunter

    Rorey was born in Western Australia, grew up in Far North Queensland before moving to Brisbane where his running career started to blossom. At 6'1 he enjoyed playing AFL and basketball but with the encouragement of his high school running coach he ventured down the pathway that led him to the world class 1500mtr runner he is today. Rorey followed the footsteps of many great international runners and picked up a degree whilst running for Indiana University within the US college scholarship scheme over a 5yr period of 2012 to 2017. On his return he decided to move to the nations capital to carry out his masters in physiotherapy and to train with  Australia's most renowned running coach Professor Dick Telford. After being diagnosed with an accessory soleus muscle a few years back that had been causing grief over that time, Rorey decided upon surgery last November in the hope that it will enable him to put down some consistent months of training and racing that will enable him to pick up an Aussie singlet in the World Champs at Eugene, Oregon in July and/or the Commonwealth Games hosted in Birmingham, England in August. Rorey has all the tools needed to represent his country on the biggest stage so lets all cross our fingers and wish for the stars to align so another Aussie runner gets to perform where they deservedly belong due to years of hard work, discipline and belief, All the best mate!
