Episode 88: Deena Kastor

Episode 88 of the podcast is with Deena Kastor! I am so excited to have her on the show today. Deena is one of the best American Distance Runners of all time. She has a long list of incredible accomplishments, including being the American Record in the Marathon and Half Marathon, with times of 2:19:36 and 1:07:34. She is a 3-Time Olympian and won a bronze medal in the 2004 Olympic in Athens and also has won both the London and the Chicago Marathon. She also holds a 5,000M PR of 14:51 and 10,000M of 30:50. She also holds the American masters half marathon and marathon records in times of 1:09:36 and 2:27:47.

Deena runs with the Mammoth Track Club, coached by her husband Andrew Kastor and is the mom to six year old Piper. She recently finished up her brand new book “Let Your Mind Run: A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory.” In this episode we talk about the mental side of the sport and how it can revolutionize your training and racing. We also talk special career moments and a little bit about parenting. Deena shares how she poured her heart into this new book and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
