Episode 294: Noah Droddy – 2:09:09 at the Marathon Project for 2nd Place

Noah Droddy placed second at The Marathon Project in a time of 2:09:09!

Noah runs professionally for the Roots Running Project and is sponsored by Saucony and Polar. He has had a gradual progression post collegiately after being a DIII All-American at Depauw University. In the Chicago Marathon last fall, he ran a five minute personal best, taking his time down from 2:16 to 2:11:42. He had to miss the Olympic Trials in February due to injury and hadn’t raced since October 2019 before this race at The Marathon Project.

Noah has been on the podcast two other times on episode 107 and episode 205. There is also an extra 15 minutes of the conversation with Noah over on my Patreon.
