Allie Kieffer stormed back onto the running scene by coming in as the second US woman, and fifth overall, in the 2017 NY Marathon with a 15 minute personal best. She became a runner for Oiselle early this year and selected them because of the focus on women and community. Allie ran in college for Wake Forest, made the 2012 10k Olympic Trials but retired in 2013 after injury. Because of her love of running she self-coached her way back, which is amazing it its own right.
Allie and I cover a wide range of subjects: how she focused on what effort she felt she could sustain in order to smash 15 minutes off her personal best to take everyone by surprise in that 2017 marathon, her advocacy for positive body image and setting a goal of good healthy living and balance in her life and what she is currently doing to heal a stress fracture in her foot.
Allie and I cover whether you should strive for a race weight and what that could mean for your performance overall and your ability to give your body what it needs to perform at it.
Don’t box yourself in by putting limits on what you think you are capable of. Set yourself up for success, not failure.
If you can’t eat out at a restaurant or have anxiety about it, you are not being healthy.
