What a pleasure it was to interview my friend Chris Lear for the first episode of the Coaching Runners podcast.
Most people don’t know that Chris broke 4:10 for the full mile as a high school athlete, and was an All-American, running the 1,200m leg of the DMR for Princeton, when they finished fourth in the NCAA.
Chris talks about his training in high school and highlights elements that high school coaches will find useful.
I ask Chris what the one thing a high school coach can do tomorrow that Mark Wetmore and Ron Warhurst do with their athletes.
Chris also talks about the role talent plays in distance running.
Thanks Chris for kicking off the podcast with a great interview!
