Shout Out to Gwen Lingenfelter!

Big shoutout to former Academy member Gwen Lingenfelter who is sharing her passion for running today at her company’s wellness fair.

From Gwen . . .

“I only started running in 2011. The MTA podcasts & lessons are the one thing that helped me to learn to run, to quit smoking, and to understand that running is my fountain of youth!

Because of that, in 2013, I did 12 half marathons (one a month). Ten of those were Rock ‘n’ Roll Series races so I achieved all the Heavy Medals that year.

The above picture is my RnR Nashville Finisher Medal. I also did New Orleans, Dallas, Portland, Seattle, San Diego, San Jose, Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Antonio, plus two local halves that same year. -Gwen

Goodbye Ed Whitlock, You Will Be Missed!

We were saddened yesterday to hear of the passing of marathon great Ed Whitlock of prostate cancer. He was a Canadian runner who held multiple world records for age group finishes in the marathon. His most recent feat was to break 4:00 at the Toronto Waterfront Marathon at age 85.

We interviewed Ed about his world records, training, and philosophy of life on MTA podcast episode 195. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ed’s family. He was truly an inspiration to the entire running world!

I call it that because our camper is a Gulf Stream Conquest and Angie thinks I overuse the word epic, which makes me want to use it more haha.

Our plans (conquest goals) are to see family, run races, visit national parks and make amazing memories for our kids! Continue Reading →
