Episode 41: Talking to “the worlds most interesting man,” Nick Symmonds about how to put on muscle.
In this episode I talk to two-time Olympian, 6 X Nation Champion, and 1:42 retired 800 meter specialist Nick Symmonds about his varied ventures with everything from marathons to mountaineering, before we get into the topic of discussion, which is how to put on muscle for runners. Enjoy!Disclaimer: sorry about the audio guys! Anchor is having issues with synching properly when remote recording so you will notice an increasing discrepancy between my audio and Nick’s audio as the podcast progresses, but there is so much good stuff in here I decided to share it anyway. My apologies.

Episode 40: "The Big Three" come together for a first-ever three-way conversation! (Dathan Ritzenhein, Alan Webb, and myself).
In this episode newly retired Dathan (former American record holder in 5,000 meters in 12:56), Alan (American Record holder in the mile in 3:46), and myself (American record holder in the half marathon in 59:43) remember the good ol' days of our high school class of 2001, in which we were dubbed "the big three" by a writer, forever linking our careers.  We recall our first competitions against each other, how we inspired each other, the workout Alan crushed prior to running a national high school record in the mile (3:53...which still stands), how to push through pain, and speculated what it was that led to our respective breakthrough years.
