No matter your pace, this episode will intrigue and enlighten you. Running coach Jen Steele, who used to bring up the rear in races, talks with hosts Sarah and Coach Liz (who often chimes in with advice, too), about:

-“slow” not being a pace;
-hydration + fueling options for back-of-pack runners;
-finding races that are friendlier to “slower” athletes;
-overcoming imposter syndrome; and,

-the value of your goal not being related to the swiftness of your pace.

Before Coach Jen joins around 7:29, Sarah tells about her longest run post-injury. Also, try our new, free two-week training program: Consistent, Not Perfect.
