I’ve recorded nearly 300 podcasts in my life and this episode with Peter Bromka was the most emotional and insightful one that I’ve ever done. Peter just ran 2:19:02 at the California International Marathon to nearly miss the Olympic Trials qualifying standard. That heartbreaking fact does not come close to telling the whole story. Peter is not only an excellent runner but also a fantastic writer who has put out wonderful pieces on the sport. Over the last couple years he has accrued a following of people who appreciate his work and see themselves in his attempt to achieve an Olympic Trials qualifying effort. In this episode, Peter shares his journey, his feelings before, during, and after the race, and how he views the process of dedicating yourself to a goal while managing a business and family life.
