“I can do this. I am more capable than I give myself credit for. I can bet on myself. I can show up on race day, on that start line, and be confident in what I’ve done and know there’s no reason why I can’t go out there and have the race of my life.”
The last time Laura Thweatt was on the Ali on the Run Show, she had just finished fifth at the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in Atlanta. (Listen to that episode here.) She was running professionally for Saucony (still true) and training with coach Joe Bosshard and the Team Boss crew in Boulder, CO (no longer true!). On this episode, Laura offers an update on life after Team Boss. She talks about her decision to step away from her training group, and shares the news about her new coach and training plan. She also talks all about the work she’s done leading up to this weekend’s New York City Marathon. Laura is a 2:25 marathoner who made her marathon debut in New York City in 2015. Now, she’s heading back to the start line in Staten Island with big goals, big dreams, and some big life changes happening behind the scenes. Plus, reality TV talk, Laura’s hilarious story of her interaction with Des Linden after the Trials, and so much more.
