    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!

    Ep 41 - Interview with Ed Goddard post Melbourne Marathon debut

    Ep 41 - Interview with Ed Goddard post Melbourne Marathon debut

    Ed Goddard did not let go of the dream of representing Australia at a Major Championship and running one of the fastest marathons by an Australian, when he suffered a fracture of his calcaneus at the beginning of the year. He set out and made it a priority of surrounding himself with a great support team of friends and health professionals that would enable him to maintain a high level of fitness through cross training and rehabilitation that enabled him to return to running at a high level as fast as possible. Ed spontaneously travelled back to race the Cross Country for IONA College (New York) after a marathon specific session showed very good signs of strength and fitness. That sense of fitness proved true when he qualified in Boston for the Nationals in Florida over the 10k distance. Ed flew back home after his brief 2 week race/taper period that prepared him for his debut marathon. Ed went on to run one of the fastest marathons on debut by an Australian on Australian soil 2:15:13 and has certainly proved his ability to not only absorb the high volume of marathon training but the rigors of racing road marathons on the mind and body. Ed is feeling confident that he has a few minutes up his sleeve with a couple of more months of training in his legs. Really looking forward to watching Ed chase his goal of picking up an Aussie singlet or two at the majors next year and chasing that 2:11:30 marathon qualifying standard in February 2022. All the best Ed!

    Ep 40 - Interview with Kieren Tall

    Kieren Tall has been consistently racing at the pointy end on the track and road for a couple of years now but this year has stepped up onto the highest position of the podium with his win at the Sydney 10 in May and NSW state titles in the 5000mtrs in Feb and 3000mtrs just a couple of nights ago at SOPAC. Kieren was one of the Nations top junior triathletes but after competing at the World Junior Cross Country Championships in Uganda, he soon realised where his true passion and future lay. Kieren is highly focused on running faster on the track with the aim of competing for Australia at the majors in the coming years whilst picking up a contract that will allow him to reach the highest potential possible as an athlete and as an ambassador for the sport. Kieren is chasing his dreams on and off the track that's going to be an exciting story to watch unfold, all the best Tally.

    Ep 39 - Interview with Liam Adams

    Ep 39 - Interview with Liam Adams

    Liam Adams passage to his first Olympics in Rio 2016 was certainly filled with lots of barriers that he just managed to hurdle on the very last day of the qualification period. To say the Tokyo 2020 qualification was a lot easier would be far from accurate, when Liam's first attempt of running the 2:11:30 required time on the Gold Coast in 2019 fell short by just 6 seconds. Having the disappointment of the 2016 Lake Biwa DNF result in his mind when his hamstring failed, Liam was determined to make sure he did what ever was needed to make this one count and secure his spot on the Australian Team. With the COVID pandemic just starting to shut down the globe and cause the cancellation of travelling and racing, Liam wasn't fully aware at the time of how huge it was when he crossed the line running a 2:10:48 and earning himself the number one spot on the Australian team and running the fastest marathon by an Aussie in 13 years. Liam is as gritty as they come and I'm extremely excited to see how his 2nd Olympic Marathon unfolds along with the other 5 members of the team. All the best Liam, Brett, Jack, Lisa, Sinead and Ellie.

    Ep 38 - Interview with Ed Goddard

    Ep 38 - Interview with Ed Goddard

    Ed Goddard will be spotted running the hilly streets of the North Shore suburb of Mosman, Sydney with phone in hand and his long blonde locks blowing in the wind to the beat of Bob Dylan. Ed has been competing at a very high level since the end of high school and has represented Australia at the junior and senior level on the track and road. With a fantastic end to 2020 with a 62:16 half marathon in Launceston to a brilliant kickstart into 2021 with a 28:23 in January at the Zatopek meet in Melbourne, everything was heading on the correct trajectory, then injury struck! A 3cm fracture to Ed's calcaneus put a hold on the goal of running an Olympic qualifying time for the marathon at the Athletics Australia race in Penrith. Ed maintained his fitness on the bike and in the gym and surrounded himself with great health professionals to enable the return to running as fast and as safely as possible. Ed has a positive, fun and relaxed philosophical approach to his life as much as his running and is finding his feet again for an assault on the world marathon scene in the coming years. A fantastic chat with Ed that I know you will Enjoy!

    Ep 37 - Interview with Andy Buchanan

    Ep 37 - Interview with Andy Buchanan

    They say you're a product of your environment and Andy is certainly no exception to that rule. Andy grew up in Bendigo and as a child his family holidays were centred around packing up the car and heading off to the next marathon for his parents' to compete in, because that's what all families do right? Andy will be 30 years of age when he toes the line for his first marathon on the Gold Coast in July but he certainly hasn't been sitting around procrastinating about following in his parents' footsteps into the marathon. Andy has won numerous Victorian State Titles on the track and Cross Country as well as the 2017 and 2018 National Cross Country Titles. Just 15 day's after running his 10,000mtr personal best of 28:26 at Zatopek in Melbourne in December 2019, Andy won a half marathon in Japan setting a new personal best of 62:50 and qualifying for the World Half Marathon Championships in Poland 2020 that unfortunately Australia did not attend due to COVID. Andy certainly still has a lot to offer in the shorter distances than the marathon and cross country but it's going to be exciting to watch over the coming years how the transition into the marathon distance unfolds and with 2016 Olympic marathon runner Scott Westcott as his coach I'm betting there's more green and gold singlets being posted to Bendigo in the years to come, a great chat with Andy, Enjoy!
