9-5ers & Olympic Marathon Trials Qualifiers: Matt McDonald, Alyssa Bloomquist, Ann Mazur, Duriel Hardy

It’s taken me too long to release this episode but about a month ago, I hosted a live panel at the Atlanta Track Club’s marathon weekend experience that lined up with the 2020 U.S. Olympic marathon Trials. I sat down and talked with Matt McDonald, Alyssa Bloomquist, Ann Mazur and Duriel Hardy about how they manage to balance their full workload and sometimes classes with training at a high level. The COVID-19 pandemic definitely has lots of us working from home and thrown us out of our routine but I hope that this episode brings you a little bit of inspiration into understanding the importance of balance in work, life and running for when things do go back to normal and that no dream is too big to chase.
