This podcast allows runners to connect and envision what they could become. Everyone starts somewhere but it’s how you move forward that determines which path you’ll take. For some, running is just exercise, however we believe it is much more than that: it’s mental, physical and in some cases even spiritual. Our guests are inspiring in terms of their accomplishments but they put one foot in front of the other just like everyone else.

#32: Allie Keiffer - Elite Marathon, New York City Mararthon, Strength Training, Battling Injuries, Olympic Trials
In this episode of Le Run Down I made my way down to New York City for the marathon and had the opportunity to chat with elite marathoner, Allie Keiffer.She went into her first marathon, thinking she was going to do the half the night before and ended up winning it with a time of 2:55:30. That was the 2016 Miami Marathon, and only a year later she managed to shave 25 minutes off her time, finishing 5th in New York.Allie is resilient, dedicated, and focused on the Olympic trials in Atlanta next February.News links:https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/04/sports/Girma-Bekele-Gebre-nyc-marathon.htmlhttps://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/04/sports/Girma-Bekele-Gebre-nyc-marathon.htmlInterview links:https://www.instagram.com/kiefferallie/?hl=enhttps://www.strava.com/pros/akiefferhttps://runningmagazine.ca/health-nutrition/allie-kieffer-sums-up-exactly-how-injury-feels/https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/27/sunday-review/allie-kieffer-weight-marathons-body.html
