Roberta Groner Dishes on Her Worlds/NYC Marathon Double, Why Getting Older Doesn’t Mean Getting Slower

Mother of three. Full-time nurse. 2:29 Marathoner. Roberta Groner joins the CITIUS MAG Podcast to recount her two marathon experiences at the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar, where she finished sixth overall (top American) and the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon, where she was 13th overall (4th American). Roberta takes us back to what drew her into the sport after a decade off from running. She ran her first marathon at the 2011 Chicago Marathon and has since lowered her personal best to 2:29:09. We discuss how getting older doesn’t necessarily mean getting slower, how she’s approaching the upcoming U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in Atlanta on Feb. 29 and also talks about possibly going for the U.S. women’s Masters record.

This episode was co-hosted by my good friend Matthew Luke Meyer, who was previously a guest on the Runners of NYC Podcast to share his own inspiring story.
