Berlin Marathon Takeover: Meet Ryan Welsh
“You crave that moment in a race – for example in a half marathon, you hit mile 9 or 10 and you know you have a little bit in the tank left and you start to pick up the pace. It’s like you’re foaming at the mouth and ready to go. You can just feel yourself having this out-of-body experience where everything you’ve trained for is happening and then some…When you see your friends do that and experience it yourself, it’s an unreal feeling. As athletes, it’s what keeps you coming back.” – Ryan Welsh
Continuing the series ahead of the Berlin Marathon, I’d like to introduce you to my closest training partner on the Brooklyn Track Club. The listeners, readers and supporters of CITIUS MAG have been super responsive in me sharing some of my own respective marathon training so we’re going to try and capture our experience ahead of the 2019 Berlin Marathon through a series of four podcast episodes. Meet Ryan Welsh.
Ryan has run maybe 80% of this training cycle with me and is the reason why I’ve set off on this crazy idea to chase a Boston Marathon qualifier for 2021. He shares how he found running after a career as a high school and college football player. Through his mother’s inspiration, while battling cancer, he decided to sign up for his first marathon. After her passing, he took a break from running but then found it again. Hear how he developed a passion for the sport and then brought that same football-basketball mentality to chase his best on the track and roads.
Yosef Herzog helps co-host this episode and was featured in the previous episode.
