Episode 173: Kara Goucher
Kara Goucher is a two time Olympian, a Silver medalist in the World Championships in the 10K, a mother, a wife, an author, and a women’s running community builder. Kara’s career is long and not one without hardship and injuries. In her decades of running she also grabbed third place in both the NYC and Boston Marathon.
Kara is a guest you all have been requesting for YEARS. I always knew once we had this conversation it would be a good one- Kara made me feel like I was talking to a friend I’d had for years. Listening back as I edited I actually felt like I was so comfortable I forgot it was an interview being recorded for thousands of listeners. I hope you guys like that part of the conversation!
Kara recently announced she’ll be running the Leadville Marathon, so we get into that but first we talk about motherhood, her career, different coaches she’s had and so much more. Kara was so kind to stay on the line for an extra 15 minutes – so if you don’t get enough of her here you can join my patreon community for bonus conversation with her!
