Welcome to Sports Injury Talk presented by REGAIN sports drink and momentum fitness and health. Conversations are lead by Jason Venckus, NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise specialist.

You may have heard that Kara Goucher (world champion silver medalist and two-time Olympian) has switched to trail running. She has a long list of road/ track racing accomplishments including: first at the 2008 Olympic Trials in the 5000 meter, third in both the NY and Boston Marathons in 2008 and 2009 respectively, and won the US women’s championship in the half marathon in 2012.

“What’s the alternative, I quit? … I can’t let them break me. No way.” - Kara Goucher World Championship (now) silver medal winner and 2x Olympic distance runner Kara Goucher and Danielle discuss ethics at the highest level of sport. Against the background of ESPN’s newest 30 for 30: “Lance”, Kara shares her experience at the now infamous Nike Oregon Project. She defines, for the listening audience, popular doping practices (EPO, AndroGel, IV treatments) and their effects on the body and individual competition. She describes the institutional grooming process that athletes (including herself) are subjected to, and the David and Goliath lawsuit she is still fighting, against her former Nike Oregon Project head coach and father figure Alberto Salazaar. Kara exposes a dark side of Nike: these testosterone experiments were performed on the Nike campus, in their labs, and CEO Mark Parker know about them. For the baseball fan, we extrapolated her experiences in running to determine the psychology behind and monetary/popularity windfall following the HR chase between dirty Mark McGuire and dirty Sammy Sosa. Didn’t the dirty Nike Oregon Project achieve that same goal for USA running? What is the difference between 'banned' and 'unethical'? Kara also opens up about how her former teammate and brother-in-law secretly developed a Nike shoe that single-handedly kept her from competing in her 3rd Olympic Games. We'll also tackle: 2020 NYC Marathon: will it still happen? What changes, from a runner’s perspective would she like to see implemented? What about a virtual marathon? Kara's tips for the avid runner... and the "Quarantine Runner", like myself The ramifications she felt (and still feels) about bringing the situation to light... and how she still feels 'unsafe' during a race. How, for her, a 3rd place finish turned into a silver medal after 12 years following a positive banned substance test A solution: who, ultimately, is in control of stopping the unethical behavior and doping: the corporations, the athletes, a governing body? Listener questions from: Erin in Palisades Park, NJ: What is your favorite workout? Vanessa, a track and field coach from Florida: Kara's mentorship of younger women in the sport, in particular- Mary Cain See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Kara Goucher's book Strong: A Runner's Guide to Boosting Confidence and Becoming the Best Version of You was published by Blue Star Press in 2018. In the name of full disclosure, Blue Star Press was kind enough to provide us a free copy to review. Kara Goucher is one of the USA's most decorated, and most recognizable female runners. She has a long list of accomplishments both on the track and on the road and has been on the US Olympic team in 2012 and 2016. Her book aims to help other athletes boost their self-confidence using the same sports psychology techniques that she used during her career. Kara doesn't claim to BE a sports psychologist, but rather she recognizes that many runners deal with confidence issues, and wants to share techniques that were helpful for her. The techniques Kara provides in the book are:· Positive self-talk· Mantra· Setting goals· Enclothed cognition· Power pose· Visualization· Power words· Social connection This book has limited theoretical backgrounds about each individual technique, but this is not the goal of the book anyway. It provides questions and exercises to guide the reader in applying the technique and provides examples from Kara Goucher's own confidence journal as examples. Kara also has other female athletes (Molly Huddle and Emma Coburn, to name a couple) contribute their own struggles and ideas about confidence, and it really shows how the elites struggle with the same demons as we do. Kara tells us how she used to feel like she didn't belong when she would line up to run high caliber races.

On Day 28 of the “I’m Curious To Know…” series, Travis interviews Kara Goucher, US Olympian runner and co-host of the Clean Sport Collective podcast. Not only has Kara earned status as an elite endurance sports athlete, she’s used her platform and voice to speak out against the use of performance-enhancing drugs and to elevate other women in the field. Travis and Kara discuss this role and some of the initiatives Kara is focused on in her work.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/innervoiceaudioexperience/message
When Olympic marathoner Kara Goucher went public in 2015 with her accusation that her former coach, the legendary Alberto Salazar, had skirted antidoping rules with the elite runners of the Nike Oregon Project, she suffered an onslaught of criticism and harassment. The blowback set her back financially and competitively—and made her wonder if she had made a terrible mistake. Then last spring, Goucher spoke up again, joining former Nike teammates in a New York Times op-ed about the company’s practice of suspending female athletes’ pay during pregnancy. Nike soon pledged changes, and in the fall the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency banned Salazar from coaching for four years. In the middle of this storm, Goucher converted to trail running at age 40, finishing in fifth place among women in her first off-road event, the infamous Leadville marathon. In this episode, reporter Stephanie May Joyce, who profiled Goucher for a recent issue of Outside, asks the runner how calling out the athletic footwear and apparel juggernaut shaped her career, and where she goes from here.
