On episode 11, William Alan Webb regales us with fascinating stories about where his ideas come from and his interactions with his co-writers. Bill says he writes because real work sucks, but let me tell you this author works his behind off pushing out book after book so we stay entertained. As a traditionally published author, Bill tells us about his relationship with his publishers so we get an idea of all sides of the spectrum. I cut off the interview because we were running long, but I could have talked to Bill for another hour. You don’t want to miss this one. Find out more about Bill on his website http://thelastbrigade.com.

Alan Webb, Ryan Hall & Dathan Ritzenhein Reunited: The Big 3 Discuss Their Greatest Performances, Biggest Lessons, & Much More
LetsRun.com's Track Talk
Alan Webb, Ryan Hall, and Dathan Ritzenhein rose to prominence in the early 2000s as members of the high school class of 2001. For their accomplishments as teens -- which included two Foot Locker Cross Country titles for Ritzenhein and a 3:53 high school mile record for Webb -- they were christened the "Big 3." Ever since, their careers have been linked, with each going on to break American records as professionals -- Webb in the mile (3:46.91), Ritzenhein in the 5,000 meters (12:56.27, since broken), and Hall in the half marathon (59:43). Hall also is still the fastest American ever at the marathon (2:04:58) from 2011 Boston. Ritzenhein joined Webb and Hall in retirement earlier this month, marking the end of an era in American distance running. The Big 3 bridged the gap between the low point of American distance running in the 1990s and the success of the late 2000s and 2010s, where it has become common for Americans to bring home medals from global championships. Amazingly, until Ritzenhein's retirement, Ritz, Webb, and Hall had never before gathered for a three-way conversation. We thought we had generated an incredible idea for LetsRun -- until Hall revealed he had had the same idea for his own podcast, which was published Wednesday! But the three of them had such a good time talking that they agreed to gather on Zoom for a second interview with LetsRun this week. Find out why Ritz had Webb's face on his dartboard as a high schooler, how Webb was able to beat Ritzenhein in their famous 10k showdown in 2006, which performances each believes was the best from their careers, their biggest lessons from the sport, Webb and Ritz's thoughts on their time with the Nike Oregon Project and Alberto Salazar's ban, and much more.

Run Free Podcast
In this episode newly retired Dathan (former American record holder in 5,000 meters in 12:56), Alan (American Record holder in the mile in 3:46), and myself (American record holder in the half marathon in 59:43) remember the good ol' days of our high school class of 2001, in which we were dubbed "the big three" by a writer, forever linking our careers. We recall our first competitions against each other, how we inspired each other, the workout Alan crushed prior to running a national high school record in the mile (3:53...which still stands), how to push through pain, and speculated what it was that led to our respective breakthrough years.
