Evan Jager joined us ([spp-timestamp time=”67:27″]) on the podcast to talk the big injury that sidelines him at the end of 2018 and confused him for most of 2019.  Will he be ready for USAs in 3 weeks? How does he survive 3 hours of PT a day?

We start the podcast with Employee 1.1 joining us to talk about the 50th Peachtree Road Race and $200,000 in bonuses, and the 2020 Olympic Marathon Trials course.

Then we talked about the sad death of Frank Meza ([spp-timestamp time=”13:47″]), Bernard Lagat running 2:12 in the marathon and his Olympic chances (25:07), Lausanne and Noah Lyles running 19.50 ([spp-timestamp time=”31:37″]), US stars at the Sunset Tour meet ([spp-timestamp time=”45:25″]), whether Kate Grace is a medal threat at 800 ([spp-timestamp time=”51:37″]), a preview of the Monaco Herculis Diamond League meet ([spp-timestamp time=”56:37″]), and the Women’s World Cup ([spp-timestamp time=”63:27″]), before Evan Jager joined us for his big talk [spp-timestamp time=”67:27″].
