Episode 297: Allie Ostrander – 3X NCAA Champion on running with Brooks Beasts & Coaching

Allie Ostrander joins us today! She is a Steeple Chaser and runs for the Brooks Beast professionally. Allie is a three time NCAA champion. She ran for Boise State University and is originally from Alaska!

Allie recently took a position as a volunteer coach at Seattle Pacific University and I LOVED hearing about her passion for coaching and what she hopes to bring to the team over there as well as her long term dreams for coaching athletes to reach big goals.

Allie is coming off an injury and has her sights set on the Olympic Trials this summer with plans for some good track racing this spring!
