Episode 65 of The Final Sprint Podcast features the first installment in a two-part series of interviews with the legendary female running pioneer and Lydiard protégé LORRAINE MOLLER. (Note: The second and final part of the interview will be published tomorrow in Episode 66).I encourage you to listen to the podcast and to please share it with your readers and other contacts.
In today's portion of the interview, Lorraine talks about the link between her development as a runner and as a person, the stages of her career, being driven by that "pioneering kiwi spirit" , the metamorphosis of female athletics, her bond with iconic running coach Arthur Lydiard, misconceptions about his training philosophies, and why her basic training so seamlessly prepared her for the marathon. She also discusses the special meaning of her induction to the Colorado Running Hall of Fame, and her belief that running is a personal and spiritual journey has enabled her to develop the often under-appreciated, but yet crucial element to success in both running and in life: self-understanding and the mental framework of a champion.
The audio interview is also available at no charge in the . Store
