In this episode:

I had the honor and privilege to interview the Masters Track 1-mile Age Group American Record Holder, Susan "Lynn" 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.)
