Episode 425: Natasha Wodak – New Canadian Marathon Record in 2:23:12

Natasha Wodak recently broke the Candian Record in the marathon at the Berlin Marathon in 2:23:12. This was a 3 minute PR for her. Natasha is a two-time Olympian. She ran in the 10,000m in 2016 and at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics she ran the marathon where she placed 13th. She is sponsored by Asics.

This conversation is really fun because we go all the way back to 2016-2017 and what was going on in her life and career at that point and how much has shifted and changed since then and what changes she has made to get to this point in her career. If you would have asked her in 2017 when we last talked, she wasn’t foreseeing the marathon being a part of her career.
