Lee Troop is my guest on the fifth episode of the Run Faster Podcast.
Lee represented Australia in three different Olympics. He broke Ron Clarke’s Australian national record in the 5k, a record that stood for 33 years. He then moved up to the marathon where he ran a personal best of 2:09.
In 2013 Lee finished 15th in the Boston Marathon, running 2:17 at age 40.
Lee is the founder of the Boulder Track Club and coach of the reigning women’s US cross country champion, Laura Thweatt.
