Olympic Marathon Trials Preview with Jared Ward

In this episode, host David Willey talks with elite marathoner and Hive Platinum athlete Jared Ward, who will be running in the Olympic Marathon Trials in Atlanta on February 29th. Jared is a favorite to make his second Olympic Team after finishing sixth at the 2016 Games in Rio.  

David and Jared talk through the hard-fought lessons he has learned training and competing at an Elite level, and the important of balance.

He enters the Trials with the field’s fourth-fastest qualifying time—2:09:25, which he ran last April in Boston. That was a breakout race for him, the first—and, so far, only time he’s broken 2:10.
