About our Guest: Molly Bookmyer
Molly Bookmyer is an accomplished distance runner who works as well as trains and competes at the highest level. Recently she has achieved many top 10 finishes at a variety of events ranging from the 10k to the marathon. Molly’s personal best half marathon was from the past fall when she won with a 1:10:51 at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Half Marathon in Columbus, OH.
Molly was a 2020 Olympic Trials Marathon Qualifier and she has already qualified for the 2024 Olympic trials marathon with a time of 2:31:38 which she ran at CIM in 2022.
Near and dear to our heart and literally near to our home, Molly was the 2019 bronze medalist at the 25k Championships at the Riverbank Run in Grand Rapids Michigan.
While these shining moments are often highlighted, they were only possible because of perseverance that Molly strengthened through many challenges. Molly underwent 2 brain surgeries, walked beside her husband through cancer, and has had stress fractures and injuries.
In this episode, Molly will talk about being in tune with your body, health advocacy, the team it takes to succeed, and practical tips for evaluating how you feel in order to become more intuitive.
