CITIUS MAG Podcast: Meb Keflezighi on life since retirement
It’s hard to do an entire episode looking back at someone’s career when it was a really long and successful one. Meb Keflezighi joins the show.
He needs no further introduction but for those unfamiliar with the U.S. distance running legend, he’s the only man to win a silver medal at the Olympics (2004), the New York City Marathon (2009) and Boston Marathon (2014) in his career. Oh! He also made four Olympic teams for the U.S.
Chris and Meb look back at some of the highlights of his career and catch up on how life has been since he retired after the 2017 New York City Marathon – the 26th of his career and at 42 years old.
Among the questions asked:
– What’s the one race from the 90s that he wishes was caught on video?
– How often does he go back to watch his races?
– One question asked per Olympics including ‘How quickly did you have to think about doing push-ups when you slipped in Rio?’
– After 2004, he was a silver medalist but how did he maintain that underdog mentality?
