[I had originally shared this Liza Howard podcast on Facebook a while back...but since everyone isn't on Facebook (yep, it's true) I decided non-FBer's may be interested and put it on the site. Enjoy!]
Shortly after her second place finish at the 100 km USATF Trail Championship down in Bandera (results summary), Texan Liza Howard shared some great insight on the benefits of having a coach, things to consider when selecting a coach, why she became a Jedi trail master (or coach), and other coaching related insights.
This Texas-sized bundle of helpful and interesting information is all packed within a sweet little podcast at Trail Runner Nation.
I really dug Liza’s response to the “How long would it take to train up to a 50km?” question. It definitely shows a holistic approach to her coaching.
