Amy Hastings-Cragg joins the CITIUS MAG Podcast just before heading off across the pond to compete at the 2017 IAAF World Championships marathon in London. Hastings-Cragg won last year’s U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials and then finished ninth in the Olympic marathon in Rio de Janeiro. Soon after her race in Brazil, she chatted with coach Jerry Schumacher to discuss the possibility of chasing another medal at this year’s world championships.
In this week’s episode, she discusses her transition into training under Schumacher with the Bowerman Track Club, taking a break after Rio but then kicking off 2017 with a half marathon PR, sharing a room with Desi Linden in college, what she would say if she had one question to ask Rita Jeptoo and much more.
