Who feels like they are juggling spaghetti sometimes? Life can be difficult and messy. The topic of how to balance life is one we often return to on this show, because it is one of the most complex and difficult things about training.
This interview is with one of the best busy runners on the planet, Martin Hehir. In the episode, Martin tells Andi and Zach about his build up to the Marathon Project and how he executes training as a busy runner.
As a top US distance runner, 4th year medical student, and family man, Martin Hehir juggles it all (I’m guessing even spaghetti).
We discuss Martin’s marathon project race where he ran 2:08:59 placing him on US all-time list at 7th. Martin is no stranger to top-level running and was 6th at the 2020 Olympic Marathon Trials and in 2016 was 7th in the 10k at the US track and field trials.
Currently Martin runs for Reebok Boston Track Club coached by Chris Fox. His wife Monica plays a major role in his ability to succeed as well.
