Jen Rhines, One of America’s Best Distance Runners Of All-Time


Jen Rhines is one of the most accomplished American distance runners in history. She’s made 15 U.S. national teams including three Olympic teams. At the 2000 Sydney Olympics, she competed in the 10,000 meters. Four years later, she ran the marathon in Athens. In  2008, she dropped all the way back down to run the 5,000 meters in Beijing. Jen has been an Adidas athlete for more than 20 years. From her website, she boasts that she ranks in the top 10 all-time for the United States in the 3,000 meters, 5,000 meters and 10,000 meters. We chat about her longevity in the sport and how most of her PRs came between the ages of 33 and 36. We’ll also learn about her introduction to pro running, what she thinks has attributed to her successes, an inside look at her favorite Olympic memories and much more.

Jen currently lives and trains in San Diego, where she helps coach the Golden Coast Track Club alongside her husband Terrence Mahon.

For the first time, we have a co-host as Daniel Winn, a professional runner with the Brooklyn Track Club in New York City, joins the show. He was a former teammate of Jen’s with the Boston Athletic Association.
