“I’m really, really proud of this one. I feel like I executed it better than I had a marathon before. I think it was my savviest marathon…I understand I did really well and I made all the right choices. All of the measures of success I met. I don’t necessarily have the joy. It’s more pride right now.”
Scott Fauble is back on the podcast for the 7th time, which might be a record for a recurring guest. It’s funny to go back and look at the archives because when he first came on this show in 2017, it was ahead of his marathon debut and now he’s one of the top U.S. marathoners. He just finished as the top American at the New York City Marathon in 2:13:35 to finish 9th overall. Earlier in the spring, he ran a personal best of 2:08:52 at the Boston Marathon and we did an episode after that performance. Let’s unpack another top American performance.
