We share the highlights of our hour-long talk with Jim from earlier in the week which will be releasing as a podcast later in the week.
Jim revealed three newsworthy things during our hour-long talk with him:
1) He's going to be racing the Olympic Trials in a prototype pair of HOKA ONE ONE shoes that he loves and has nicknamed "The Trials Dagger."
2) On February 12, he had to bail out of what was supposed to be the "biggest" workout of his entire marathon training block.
3) Despite point #2, Walmsley has been thrilled with how his training has gone overall and thinks he's in 2:10 shape. He feels he's got a legitimate shot at making the team, summarizing everything as, "I feel like I've legitimately put in the training and the work to contend up front. I feel pretty confident with that."
