Podcast 027 – Tom Reese and Adam Batliner

Tom Reese and Adam Batliner are not only two great friends of mine (groomsmen in our wedding) but two runners who battled in high school against each other and then worked together as teammates at the University of Colorado.

In this short 30-minute podcast they talk about the 1,600m they ran their senior year, where they went 1-2, running 4:14 and 4:15 (which would be 4:09 and 4:10 at sea-level).  Then they talk about their experience running the steeplechase at CU.  Adam was third in the NCAA his last two years at CU and Tom was forth, just behind Adam, his last year at CU.  Noteworthy is that back in 1994 these guys run just 30-40 miles a week.  You’ll have to listen to Tom’s answer to the question, “What were your two longest runs in high school?”

So much fun to have friends on the podcast.  Enjoy.

…oh, and as always, you can get this podcast via iTunes.

    I just found this site recently and think this is a great resource for runners. I would very much like to listen to the podcasts, but (as far as I can figure out) don’t have access to itunes. It looks like you need either a Mac, or run Windows on a PC. But I use Linux/Android/ChromeOS, so no itunes. Is there another way to access the podcasts?
