On Running is sponsoring the Countdown to the Trials. Alicia Monson of the OAC is our guest this week and OAC coach Dathan Ritzenhein joined us last week.
Your weekly run down of the track and field world. Rojo starts with a DK Metcalf victory lap, we discuss whether Sean McGorty is the future of the steeple, praise Elle Purrier, blast the US men’s 1500m runners, wonder what is going on with Nikki Hiltz and Molly Huddle, look at Yared Nuguse‘s victory over Cole Hocker.
At 82:27, we’re joined by the OAC’s Alicia Monson, the woman coach Dathan Ritzenhein said could be “the next great American female distance runner.” We talk about Alicia turning pro, joining the OAC, and getting ready for next month’s Olympic Trials where she’s an up and coming underdog in either the 5,000, 10,000 or both. Can she really be the next Deena or Shalane? First up is trying to make Olympic team #1.

(Sponsor) The AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece is a relatively new training tool that launched late in 2020 after nearly 16 years of research. The AIRWAAV performance mouthpiece fits along your bottom teeth and pushes your jaw just forward enough to create the “optimal airway opening,” resulting in:
  • Increased endurance — by reducing respiratory rate by 20%, resulting in less lactic acid production
  • Increased strength — by improving muscular endurance
  • Faster recovery times — by reducing cortisol build-up by up to 50%
LetsRun listeners can save 10% with the code “LR10” Dig into the science and put AIRWAAV to the test. Click here to try it out.
