Podcast: Evan Jager Talks Injury & Redemption, + Look at Lausanne, Noah Lyles 19.50, Monaco, and Lagat 2:12
July 10, 2019
Evan Jager joined us ([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 ([13:47]), Bernard Lagat running 2:12 in the marathon and his Olympic chances (25:07), Lausanne and Noah Lyles running 19.50 ([31:37]), US stars at the Sunset Tour meet ([45:25]), whether Kate Grace is a medal threat at 800 ([51:37]), a preview of the Monaco Herculis Diamond League meet ([56:37]), and the Women’s World Cup ([63:27]), before Evan Jager joined us for his big talk [67:27].
