Episode 131: Shadrack Biwott
Shadrack Biwott placed 3rd at the Boston Marathon this year and is a name to be watching in the coming seasons as the Olympic Trials approach! He was suggested to me by guests Tim and Kirstin Ritchie who were on Episode 123.
We’ve talked a lot about the women’s race in Boston this year, but the men’s race hasn’t been talked about nearly as much; least by me it hasn’t and I was so excited to hear about Shadrack’s experience. Though he finished 3rd in this years Boston Marathon- he wasn’t the dark horse you might think he was- as he placed 4th in Boston in 2017 and 5th at the New York City Marathon in 2016.
He is sponsored by Brooks Running and runs for the Hansons team. He has a marathon PR of 2:12:01 and a have marathon PR of 61:24. Shadrack is from Kenya and has lived in the States since High School- he is married to his college sweatheart Kathy, they have two kids and live in California where he trains mostly solo, while enjoying getting to know the running community in his town. He has a positive and encouraging outlook on life that I know will inspire you.
