Episode 499: Molly Bookmyer – 2:30:37 at Toronto Marathon, Training with the Oiselle Underbird Project for the Olympic Trials

Molly Bookmyer is on the podcast today and I am so excited to share this episode!

Molly recently set a PR at the Toronto Marathon where she ran 2:30:37 for 8th place and battled some really strong weather conditions that day. She shares in this episode that she felt fit and in better conditions was ready to run much faster! Molly has a 1:10:51 half marathon PR. She is training under the Oiselle Underbird Project with 4 other athletes for the Olympic Trials!

Molly has a unique story in that she walked onto her college team and didn’t have crazy success as a college runner and has really blossomed as a post-collegiate runner. Part of her story is that she was diagnosed with a brain tumor and had major surgery for that and then another surgery following that due to complications during college. Soon after getting married, her husband was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Has she been through it with her health journey or what!!? She shares all about that in this episode and also shares about her passion to still live fully even when things are hard! I LOVED hearing about this mindset and I just think that it’s a really beautiful way to live!

Next up for Molly is the Olympic Trails in Orlando. She has so much ahead of her and I cannot wait to see what she accomplishes at the trials and beyond!! We’re rooting for you, Molly!!
