LetsRun.com's Track Talk
Your weekly running and track and field fix

Emily Sisson (Guest) American Record! Qs on Dibaba, Simpson, Huddle, Centro and Kessler

1 year ago

Emily Sisson ran 66:52 in Houston to break her own American record and become the first American woman under the 67 minute barrier in the half-marathon and she joins us at 77:25 to talk about her record breaking run, her great 2022, and her plans for 2023 and beyond.

Prior to that we break down all things Houston, including the return of Tirunesh Dibaba, a crazy finish with Weslee Kiptoo in the men's race (link here) and debate what the future holds for Molly Huddle and Jenny Simpson.

We then turn to the track action and the return of Matthew Centrowitz and another win for Hobbs Kessler before discussing Marc Scott's plan to go train with Eliud Kipchoge and Patrick Sang.
