222. Kaitlin Goodman Recaps the 2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials
Ali on the Run Show
"I know I wasn’t a favorite, but I felt that if a door opened, I was fully ready to sprint through it." When Kaitlin Goodman, a 2:32 marathoner who runs for adidas and the Boston Athletic Association, arrived at the start line of the 2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials, she felt fit, strong, and ready to race. Kaitlin was ranked 29th in the field of more than 500 women, and she was in Atlanta to be at the front of the race. But just half a mile into the 26.2-mile run, Kaitlin fell, and in an instant, her dreams of finishing at the top of the field were shaken. On this episode, Kaitlin vividly recounts what the day was like for her. (Warning: This one is a tear-jerker.) At the end of the episode, Kaitlin — who holds a master's in public health from Brown University and is a consultant in the field — shares what she wishes everyone understood about the current state of the world and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

160. Kaitlin Goodman, Professional Runner for the Boston Athletic Association
Ali on the Run Show
“I didn’t really have the credentials to back up what I wanted to do. I just had a dream and a lot of passion and determination.” If you don't already know it, remember the name Kaitlin Goodman. Kaitlin is a professional runner for the Boston Athletic Association and a run coach with a master's degree in public health. She's fast — and multifaceted. Kaitlin, who lives in Providence, RI, and trains in Boston, is a four-time Olympic Trials qualifier: She's qualified in the 5,000 meters, the 10,000 meters, and the marathon. (She runs a 2:32 marathon.) And although it's been a lifelong dream to become a professional runner, it hasn't all been smooth sailing and speedy running along the way. Kaitlin suffered a brutal injury while training for last year's New York City Marathon, and she eagerly opens up about what that physical and mental recovery process looked like. She talks about making goals, and what happens when you don't hit them, and she shares how she rebounds and grows from disappointing experiences. Kaitlin breaks down what, exactly, it means to be a professional runner, and talks about training alongside Molly Huddle and Emily Sisson.

6 | Elite Marathoner Kaitlin Goodman: A Return to Running Joyfully
The Injured Athletes Club
In the summer of 2018, pro runner Kaitlin Goodman—known for her positive personality, as well as times fast enough to qualify her for the Olympic Trials in multiple events—had just signed a new contract with the Boston Athletic Association High Performance Team and Adidas. She was training for the TCS New York City Marathon that fall. By her account, she was in “the shape of her life.” Then, on a training run in August, she dove to avoid a car that nearly hit her. In the process, she partially tore her hamstring tendon. The diagnosis—and the subsequent slow recovery—ranks as one of the biggest challenges she’s faced in her life. But in her journey back to running, she gained newfound perspective (and even a new family member). Kaitlin joined us today to discuss: How the injury took her from the “highest of highs” to the “lowest of lows” Why her dog Moose was so critical to her psychological and physical recovery—and how his running ramp-up mirrored her return to the sport The extremely difficult decision not to line up at the NYC Marathon, and why she kept her injury quiet for a time How she handled the day of the race itself; why she couldn’t go to NYC but did watch the competition from afar Why coaching was another saving grace during this time: “When all your eggs are in the running basket and running is not going well, it's really challenging. You feel like you're like failing at all areas of your life.” Why she thinks it’s so important to allow yourself time to feel negative emotions—but to put a timeframe on them One big piece of support she wishes she would’ve asked for in the depths of her injury process, and what she recommends to other athletes The anger she felt at the driver, how she worked a day at a time to control it, and the productive project into which she’s now channeling it The loss of identity that comes with injury, how deeply it affected her, and what she did to move through it When she started to feel like “Kaitlin the runner” was reborn, and how gratitude for that influences her experience now Resources/links we mention: Kaitlin’s website Her social media pages: Instagram and Twitter Thanks for listening, and please reach out anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, guest suggestions, or other feedback.
