Emma Bates just placed 2nd at the Chicago Marathon in a time of 2:24:20. So exciting to see her execute that race so well! This was Emma’s 5th marathon. She ran the Chicago Marathon in 2019 in 2:25:27 where she placed 4th. She tells us all about the race in this episode and how she executed that, what it’s been like training with Team Boss, being sponsored by Asics, and so much more!
Emma was on the podcast back in 2018 on episode 156 after she won the CIM marathon so make sure to go back and give that one a listen!
