Dreams Become Reality, Craziness on the Track & Roads, Jacob Thomson (Guest)

1 year ago

At the end of 2020, Jacob Thomson didn't have a sponsor but he packed his bags and made the drive to Flagstsaff. Now running for Under Armour Dark Skey, he's the US champion in the half marathon and has his eyes on the 2024 Olympics in the Marathon. He joins us at 90:04 in the Where Your Dreams Become Reality Segment.

Prior to that we break down the running world. There was craziness on the roads in Osaka, a great indoor meet in Birmingham, craziness in the college ranks, and we debate what should Katelyn Tuohy and the Washington men do at NCAAs, plus Molly Seidel raced a half two weeks before her Nagoya Marathon.
