“I think the big problem with that whole debate was that there was a disagreement with what ‘good’ meant. People who just look at results and times may think ‘good’ and ‘fast’ are 100% the same. They encapsulate each other. ‘Good’ can also mean competing really well and beating people. Sometimes ‘good’ and ‘fast’ are the same. More often, ‘good’ means racing people to me at least.”
Northern Arizona Elite’s Scott Fauble joins CITIUS MAG Podcast for the third time. Wow. Fauble was the top American at the 2019 Boston Marathon, where he notched a big personal best of 2:09. His PR going into the race was a 2:12:28 from his seventh-place finish at the 2018 New York City Marathon.
Fauble was leading the race with four miles to go and on this episode, he’ll take you through his internal thoughts as he’s surrounded by a handful of 2:04 East Africans. Did he think he could win? What was it like when they decided to break away? He puts us in his shoes.
He also dives into his training for the race, which included a monster 16-mile workout at Sunset Crater in Arizona. How that gave him the confidence and sign that he was ready for a major breakthrough.
With him finally running under 2:10, have the haters been silenced? He responds to the criticism from the LetsRun message boards regarding his last appearance on the podcast and those who defined “good” as a fast time.
Plus: With the 2020 U.S, Olympic Trials looming, what are his plans for the fall?
All that and more on the latest episode of the CITIUS MAG Podcast.
