Meb Keflzighi’s amazing marathon career had 26 marathons in it and saw him win a silver medal in Athens, and titles at the New York City Marathon (2009) and the Boston Marathon (2014). He’s the only man to win New York, Boston and an Olympic medal.
Meb has a new book out this week, 26 Marathons, and just glancing at it, it looks great for runners. Meb goes through each of his marathons, the good and the bad, and recaps what happened and gives advice based on what he learned.
Meb literally passed LetsRun.com’s Weldon Johnson last week in Central Park while out on a run (they were going opposite directions). Meb was in town to be a speaker at an investor’s conference by Marathon Asset Management (full disclosure: Weldon’s wife did some of the PR for the event). They stopped and caught up, and Meb said he’d come on the podcast.
It was perfect timing with his book releasing this week. You can listen to the podcast in the player below or read the transcript. To only listen to the Meb part click here: [51:36] Meb Keflezighi
