Episode #24: Clean Sport Panel with Rob Krar, Dylan Bowman, Alysia Montaño, and Kara Goucher

Clean Sport Collective

On November 15th, the North Face Endurance Challenge hosted us for a Clean Sport panel with elite trail athletes Rob Krar and Dylan Bowman, track athlete and prior Clean Sport Collective Podcast guest Alysia Montaño, and co-host Kara Goucher.  With this panel, it is fascinating to hear the differences in testing and clean sport culture across road, trail and track racing.  Alysia discusses her recent medal upgrade experience in Doha. Dylan and Rob provide insight into the trail community and its current rudimentary approach to drug testing. Kara discusses why the Salazar ban was such a landmark decision, and all of the athletes give their perspectives on what should come next for athletes, the governing bodies, brands, events, and the fans.  Thank you to the North Face Endurance Challenge for hosting us. As a brand and event that has signed the Clean Sport pledge, we appreciate your leadership in promoting a better culture for all athletes.

Episode #12: Alysia Montaño, 6-time US 800m Champion and World Bronze Medalist

Clean Sport Collective

With this week's episode, we follow one badass female track field athlete with another. Chris and Kara interview mom and 800m specialist Alysia Montaño (@alysiamontano) in a wide-ranging and emotional interview. Alysia is a 6-time US Champion in the 800 and also owns 3 Bronze medals from 3 different World Championships. Unfortunately, 2 of those medals came via "medal upgrade" after drug cheat Mariya Savinova was convicted of doping violations. Alysia is finally due to receive those medals in a medal ceremony coming up next week at the 2019 World Championships in Doha. In the interview, Alysia discusses the numerous challenges she has faced in track and field in spite of her success, including a contract pay reduction after only 1 year as a pro, competing against and being "robbed" by drug cheats, having her pay suspended during and after pregnancy, and the 6 and 9-year wait to finally receive the medals she earned in 2011 and 2013.  Alysia talks about how the IAAF and the other powers-that-be in this sport have let her down and the trauma that it has caused her financially and emotionally. She also provides her perspective on what needs to change to protect clean athletes and female athletes who decide to start a family (#dreammaternity). Alysia is real, honest, and brave in sharing her truth. Her story provides powerful perspective on why we need to elevate her voice for the sake of protecting current and future athletes from the challenges she has faced.

#281: A Conversation with Pregnant Pro Runner Alysia Montaño

Another Mother Runner

Sarah and Ellison Weist delight in chatting with professional runner Alysia Montaño, a 2012 Olympian and 7-time (!!!) U.S. Champion in the 800-meters. Due with baby #2 next month, Alysia talks about busting the long-standing myths of staying active during pregnancy. Alysia shares how she is navigating her “shifting” body—and how she schooled her regular UPS driver in the power of a pregnant woman. She tells why she wears a flower in her hair when she runs—as well as how she gained her childhood nickname of Icebox! Find out what “drain the dragons” means in this pro mother runner’s life, and delight at her gotta-grab-life-by-the-horns approach to motherhood. Sarah is awestruck by an insight from Alysia, borrowing the phrase to fuel her marathon. Alysia even shares a bit of her birth story, complete with a BOSU ball. In the intro, Sarah relates a bit more about her Twin Cities Marathon run, and Ellison talks about the books she’s read lately (see list). Dear Alysia joins the conversation at 26:50.
