Episode 188: Jenny Simpson

Jenny Simpson was such a delight to talk with on the podcast today. She is a fierce competitor and truly the Queen of the 1500 meters in Track and Field. Her passions go much deeper than running and we get to learn a lot about her on another level not just about track in today’s episode.

On the track- Jenny is a 3-time Olympian; she is a bronze medalist in the 1500 in the 2016 Olympics in Rio and holds three World Championships medals, including a Gold medal from 2011 and silver medals from 2013 and 2017. She is the
3rd Fastest American All-Time in the 1500 with a PR of 3:57.22 and the second fastest American of all time in the 3000m in a time of 8:29:58.

Jenny runs for New Balance and she lives and trains in Boulder, CO. She is passionate about inspiring youth and works closely with the NYRR Rising Runners. She opens up about her faith and so much more in this episode and even stayed on for an extra 15 minutes for extended conversation over on patreon.
