“Yes, running is amazing. It’s freedom, it’s hard work, it’s amazing. It’s one of the best sports I think in the entire world, but there is so much to that when you learn who you are. When you learn who you are you can capitalize on the beauty of the sport… Learn who you are, love who you are and it will make the sport of running ten times more amazing.”
Chloe Abbott is a 400m professional sprinter for On Running, BUT she is much more than running. Chloe is a multi-hyphenate (my new favorite word as you will find in this episode) athlete, musician, and actor. I met Chloe at the USA Track Championships, walking into the meet, and I was blown away when she sang the National Anthem.
In this episode of More Than Running, we talk about Chloe’s collegiate experience at Purdue and the University of Kentucky, her first post-collegiate year, and her many, many passions off the track. Chloe lives and trains in LA with Allyson Felix and a star-studded training group.
