"The only reason this was my goal is because it was her goal. I only have this dream because she was crazy enough to dream it first." —Veronica Jackson

Veronica Jackson and Alex Bernardi are among the 500+ women who will be running the U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon this weekend in Atlanta, GA. They're longtime training partners, and on this episode, they talk about the power of running friendships, and the effects your best running friends can have on your goals. Today, Alex and Veronica live in separate cities — Veronica in Boston where she's an attorney at the Partners Healthcare Hospital System, and Alex in New York City, where she's a research associate at a nonprofit — but we got together in person to record this episode (after they finished their 20-miler, of course).

Veronica Jackson just moved to Boston after nearly a decade in New York City but she'll always be a Runner of NYC in our book. Veronica ran for the Central Park Track Club and balanced a career as a lawyer while competing at a very high level. We met up with Veronica while in Boston for marathon weekend.

In 2018, Veronica ran 2:49:41 and finished as the 13th overall woman in a race with driving rain and cold temperatures. On Monday, she ran 2:43:48 to finish 43rd among the elite women.

On this episode, we discuss:
- How her uncles convinced her to start running marathons
- Why she was disappointed with a 13th place finish and how she got over it by hitting the Olympic Trials Qualifying Mark at the California International Marathon
- Why she loves the Boston Marathon
- How she balances her full-time job and a running career
- What it's like racing among the elite women like Des Linden and Shalane Flanagan
- The brilliance of the women's running community in New York
+ Much more...
