    Ep 36 - Interview with Ben Duffus

    Ep 36 - Interview with Ben Duffus

    Ben decided early on after graduating university in physics that he'd rather be re-writing the record books than reading them. Ben found his niche in running up mountains and technical terrain going on to represent Australia as a junior at two consecutive World Mountain Championships in 2010/11 with podium finishes at the state and national level. It wasn't long before Ben jumped head first into his first 100k and although it wasn't successful, Ben didn't have to wait long before his first win over the distance in Victoria in 2013. Ben continued that form into 2014 where he competed at three world championships over varying distances in Europe and the US with an incredible third place in France at the 80k du Mont Blanc Sky Running World Championships. Since then Ben has been very consistent in his performances winning many races over varied distances and terrain including consecutive Australian Mountain Running Titles and most recently the iconic Six Foot Track Marathon in the incredibly scenic but extremely challenging Blue Mountains. Ben will be competing at the Buffalo Stampede 75k Ultra Marathon next week and then backing up for another assault on the UTA 100k in May where he would love to improve on his previous two second place finishes. A great chat with Ben that I know you will enjoy, thanks Ben!

    Ep 35 - Interview with Izzi Batt-Doyle

    Ep 35 - Interview with Izzi Batt-Doyle

    Izzi could not turn down the incredible opportunity of a 4 year scholarship in the US that was offered on the back of numerous national level performances in the Steeplechase and Cross Country in the final years of High School. What started out as a very overwhelming and challenging experience as a freshmen within the college system culminated into the re-writing of record books, becoming an All-American athlete and Pac-12 champion. Izzi found a way to navigate through the woes of being an injured athlete more than once and always came back a stronger and faster runner determined to discover what she was capable of and never setting limitations on her capabilities. Izzi has now stamped her authority and gained much respect as a formidable opponent on the track and road displaying the talent and fight that will lead to the wearing of many Aussie singlets at majors in the years to come. A story of persistence, desire and belief that I know you will enjoy! Thanks Izzi.

    Ep 34 - Interview with Josh Johnson

    Ep 34 - Interview with Josh Johnson

    Josh has been consistently running fast around the oval office for over a decade now and still has the burning desire and belief of bettering his extremely fast 800 and 1500mtr times as well as significantly lowering his 5000 and 10000mtr personal bests. At the age of 28 where most middle distance runners transition into running longer on the roads, JJ is confident under the guidance of his coach Dick Telford that his legs have a lot more to offer on the track before making the jump. I spoke to JJ from Perisher where his doing a short stint of altitude training that has been on the January schedule annually for 15 years in preparation for the National Track and Field Championships in Sydney in April that will be the last chance for athletes to automatically qualify for the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. A great chat with JJ that I know that you will enjoy.

    Ep 33 - Interview with Sam Hopper

    Ep 33 - Interview with Sam Hopper

    Sam Hopper is a kiwi that flew the coop, yes Kiwi's are flightless, but not this one when laced up! Hopper jumped - or hopped (sorry) - at the opportunity when the offer to live and train alongside one of Australia's greatest distance runners and Dual Olympian Ben St Lawrence was made mid 2018. Hopper struggled at first whilst regaining his former fitness but through consistent mileage and hard racing for the run crew, some very respectable times have been officially recorded with World Athletics from the 3000mtrs to the half marathon. Hopper now has his sights set on running his first marathon on the Gold Coast this year and is absorbing the extra volume well as he fits his training in around selling shoes at Pace Athletic. At the age of just 26, Hopper has the opportunity for a lengthy marathon career and will no doubt be asserting his presence among the front groups very soon. Hopper is a genuine down to earth guy and really enjoyed the chat as you will too!

    A fantastic chat with Myles who has his sights set on breaking the 2:20 barrier for the road marathon distance in the near future with the first attempt being the Canberra Marathon in early April, COVID pending. Myles is reasonably new to distance running but wasted no time in showing his speed and endurance capabilities on the road and track after his move to Wollongong a few years back. When Myles is recovering from the heavy training load that is required to run quick over the 42.2km his kept busy as a journalist providing story telling in-depth articles about runners journeys for his on-line magazine "RunCreature". Myles is also providing readers the opportunity to join in on his Sub 2:20 marathon quest with frequent training reports for insight in to what is required in preparing the body for such a demanding goal. A very enjoyable listen, Enjoy!

    Ep 31 - Interview with Lisa Weightman

    Ep 31 - Interview with Lisa Weightman

    Lisa Weightman has had an incredible lengthy career in distance running to date with a lot more championship racing and personal bests to add to the already crowded running CV. Lisa has competed at multiple World Cross, World Champs, Commonwealth and Olympic Games and is currently looking fairly secure in making her 4th consecutive Olympic Marathon in Tokyo next August. Lisa like all distance runners has had to endure not only the physical trauma of running marathons but also the emotional rollercoaster that is inevitable not only when racing but when the body is unable to cooperate in training. Lisa has juggled representing her country for decades now with working full time and for the past 6 years, being a Mum. Lisa has recently just commenced the next marathon training block in preparation for a potential Olympic Games qualifying marathon next April in Australia with the aim to run a personal best and cement her spot on the Australian marathon team for Tokyo, a great listen. Enjoy!
