Episode 351: Jess Hofheimer – 3:09 marathon at 45. Beauty in the process.

Jess Hofheimer just ran a 2 minute personal best at the California International Marathon. This PR was 8 years in the making. She ran a 3:11 in Boston 8 years ago. There are a lot of layers in Jess’ story but the one thing that rings true in Jess’ story is that there is a lot of beauty in the long game and in having patience and in believing in the process. Jess talks to us about her process to getting to this PR, her experience with disordered eating and how seeing a therapist has changed her life, working with her coach David Roche, and so much more!
