Epi. 138-Taking Risks With Eric Gillis

“I don’t think I would have reached the level I did in the marathon without Eric and I being so closely lined up for all those years.” I was chatting with Reid Coolsaet, Olympian and 3rd fastest Canadian Marathoner of all time the other day, and that’s what he had to say about his long time Speed River training partner, Eric Gillis. The two of them, both rightfully the faces of the event in this country for many years trained side by side on the back roads just outside of Guelph, Ontario,...

Epi. 135- Bucking Trends And Running 10s With Branna Macdougall

Branna Macdougall has been on the radar of the collective Canadian distance running consciousness for the last half decade. Showing dominance on her own at the junior level, (she still holds the Canadian junior 5,000 record, running 15:48) and then when her younger sister Brogan showed similar ability, all eyes were focused on Kingston, seeing what could possibly be next for these girls. For Branna, it’s been an OUA championship, some solid times on the track, and most recently, being named...

Epi. 134-The Night Of Magical Metric Miles (1,500m Night) With Isaiah Frielink And Lucia Stafford

Whether you’re just trying out your first pair of track spikes, or you’re running at the world championships, for most runners inclined that way, it all traces back to the twilight meet. These “all-comer” affairs provide the venue for testing tactics, setting personal bests and pretty much everything in between. While twilights can often be a local affair, maybe featuring clubs from a few towns over, there is one such meet in London, Ontario that has grown into something a lot more. 1,500m...

Epi. 133-Rising Above, Setting Records With Nate Riech

There is no one, not even the most reckless of gamblers, in the world that would’ve put money on Nate Riech to be a world record holder. Never mind the near impossible odds we face between the numbers games and nature and nurture of it all, Nate was never supposed to be able to compete again after a golf accident left half of his body paralysed at a young age. With determination and grit, paired with time, rehab and therapy, Nate got to a point where he could compete with able bodied...

Epi. 132-Hey! Don't Miss The Inferno! ft. Genevieve Lalonde

“Experience track and field like never before,” is what the Speed River Inferno posters say, and in my opinion, that’s true. The annual meet is a rarity these days, a club putting together a top level meet, bringing in high performance athletes, national record holders and Olympians from across this country and around the world, with a variety of events spanning from the 100, to the 1,500 with Pole Vault and high jump thrown in for good measure. A meet like this is not something you will see...

Epi. 131- Aarhus To Oxy, Running Faster 5000s With Erica Digby

Here’s to the runners that don’t necessarily have that big break out moment. The runner’s who take a little bit off each season and show true grit and persistence, trying to maximize and squeeze every little bit out of themselves. Our guest this week, Erica Digby, mostly fits into that category, if you follow her year to year progress, it's been consistent and linear. This year has been a bit different though. Starting the year with a 5,000m PB 15:53, Erica has cut that down to 15:33 in just...
