Aaron Braun on leading the Chicago Marathon, nearly quitting running & Adams State days
2:12 marathoner Aaron Braun joins the show less than a week after running 2:13 at the Chicago Marathon and placing 12th overall. He was the third American across the finish line. Nearly a year ago, Braun almost quit the sport but he explains how he had a change heart and decided to stick with it and give the marathon another try.
Braun led the Chicago Marathon for most of the first half so he explains what was going through his head with Kenyans on his heels. We also talk about his days as a runner at Adams State and how he compares it to the Kenya of the United States. Fun questions include his favorite Meb moment, balancing fatherhood with training and his Mt. Rushmore of Adams State runners.
