KRP 022: A Hard Sport with Tara Welling

Tara Welling is SO cool. Sweetheart, frank, competitive and humble. She ran the 10,000 this past Saturday in the Olympic Trials final and did not do well. She took that bad race, and used it as motivation when yesterday she ran a great 5,000 meter in the Olympic Trials semifinal qualifying her for the final this Sunday July 10th. In this interview I get to know Tara, who she is, what she likes. Then we talk about her time at the Nike Oregon Project, injury, retiring (briefly) coming back, being coached by Jonathan Marcus, getting sponsored by Skechers and making it to the highest profile track meet the United States has to offer. Something tells me, you’re going to like this! Find links and show notes here:
