#368: A Chat with Meb Keflezighi: Father Runner–and Marathon Marvel!

Sarah and Amanda are delighted to talk with marathon legend Meb Keflezighi, the first person to win both the Boston and New York City Marathons plus an Olympic marathon silver medal. These races, plus 23 others, are the basis for his thought-provoking new book, 26 Marathons: What I Learned about Faith, Identity, Running, and Life from My Marathon Career. Part of the AMR Father’s Day tradition, Meb shares about:

--his first-ever run, undertaken for a T-shirt and an A in school

--being carried to victory at the 2014 Boston Marathon by spectators doing The Wave and chanting “USA! USA! USA!”

--being bedeviled by injuries (and poor nutrition) for several years, then coming back “feeling more grateful”

--bucket-list races he wants to run

--running-longevity advice

--mantras he repeats during races

--the 2016 Olympic Marathon in Rio, including his now-famous fall at the finish line

In the intro, Sarah and Amanda talk about goings-on in their respective son’s lives, including Amanda’s son’s college choice. The amazing (yet humble) Meb enters the scene at 12:40

  1. Amanda, although I feel like we are friends since you talk to me through my headphones on a regular basis as I run through my neighborhood, I guess you don’t actually know me. But I feel compelled to tell you that my daughter is a rising Junior at the University of Richmond and loves it. I am sure that she would be happy to talk to your son if he wanted to hear from someone who has been there for a while. There are so many great opportunities available to students. She is currently in Barcelona completing a research project as a matter of fact.
