Olympic Steeple Chaser Colleen Quigley joins me on the show today! Colleen runs for Nike with the Bowerman Track Club and made her first Olympic team in 2016 and placed 8th in Rio. Her running career started in high school when she realized she had real potential and ended up winning state in the 1600 and the 3200 her senior year. She went on to run for Florida state where she won an NCAA title her senior year, heading straight into competing at Worlds in Beijing where she placed 12th.
Colleen had a successful modeling career in high school and made the decision to pursue running in college, rather than modeling- something she doesn’t regret and is very happy about it. Over the past several years she has dealt with injury on and off and has become quite the mermaid in the pool – we talk about the seclusion of cross training through injury and how you’re never the ONLY one going through it. Colleen is quite the entrepreneur herself as she is delving into a legit granola business on the side (we are doing a giveaway on Monday on Instagram so make sure you are following both Colleen and I! Steeple_Squigs & LindseyHein626).
In this episode, she puts big goals out there, which you know I love and tells us all about her relationship with her Bowerman Track Club Babes & what it’s like to train with so many close friends. She also goes into the heartbreak of being DQ’d at Worlds in London last summer and that bittersweet moment of watching her two American teammates medal in the event- a huge milestone for the American Woman Steeplechasers! She’s got an exciting career ahead of her and just WON the Wannamaker Mile at the Milrose games last week! I can’t wait to cheer her on with the rest of you.
