I am a USAT Level I Certified Triathlon Coach, a Healthy Running Certified Running Coach, a Lydiard Level II Certified Running Coach and an RRCA Certified Running Coach. I am also certified in Personal Sports Nutrition and am working toward being a certified Obstacle Course Coach as well.My clients tend to be new runners and triathletes in the over 40 age groups that are looking to finish their first endurance challenges, reach for that first podium finish, or just strive to get better. I get such a euphoric high, watching clients, and friends, cross that finish line. The smiles on their faces knowing they just conquered their goals feels so much better than crossing the finish line myself.

In this episode: 

I had the honor and privilege to interview the Masters Track 1-mile Age Group American Record Holder, SusanLynn” Cooke*. (*In the racing world she goes by her legal first name, Susan, but to the rest of us she will always be Lynn.)

Our conversation covers : 

  • Getting kicked off the track team early in her life
  • Her professional life
  • How she started running and why
  • Her experience with her first half-marathon
  • Stepping onto the track the first time
  • Racing and injuries
  • A day in her life
  • The details on her record breaking performance
  • Her favorite tools
  • Lynn’s Shout outs

She is extremely inspiring especially for anyone who thought it was too late to start running or any endurance journey.

(Note: I recorded this with a high end digital recorder.  Unfortunately, it was so good it captured every reverberation from the office we used for the interview.  I tried to correct it in post-production, but it is still not perfect.  My apologies.)
