Today on the podcast, we're talking with Emma Coburn on the incredible success she's had over the last few years.

For nearly a decade, Emma Coburn has been a force to be reckoned with in the 3,000m steeplechase - a notoriously difficult race that requires strength, coordination, and an unwavering focus.

In this conversation, we're discovering how Emma has engineered such a tremendous career over a long period of time. Emma and I talk about:

  • What she's doing right now to maintain her momentum now that the 2020 Olympics have been postponed
  • The training staples that are consistently present in her training
  • Advice for runners who've had their spring races cancelled
  • The elements of her training that have changed over time
  • Her advice for high school girls transitioning to college track and cross country
  • When she knows its time to move out of her comfort zone
