“I would describe this past year as ‘drinking from a fire hose.'”
It was the day before the Eugene Marathon, and the goal was to get everyone in the audience feeling less “baaaaah!” and more “aaaaaah.” Enter: Olympic silver medalist, 2017 New York City Marathon champion, assistant coach for the Bowerman Track Club and University of Oregon cross country team, and best-selling cookbook author Shalane Flanagan. We talked marathons, we talked motherhood, and we got a quote-worthy pep talk to close it all out. Thank you to the Eugene Marathon for having us, and thank you to the hundreds of people who filled the room with the very best energy.
