I absolutely loved this conversation with Jacob. He has such a passion and love for running and has been running since middle school. We talk about his early running days, what it took to set a world record, coaching, maintaining longevity in the sport, balancing family, work and racing. Check out more about Jacob Puzey and his coaching at https://www.peakrunperformance.com/coaches
Bio: 
By most standards, Jacob’s running career did not start well.  Jacob never qualified for the Oregon State Track & Field Championships and consequently was not offered a scholarship to run in college. Upon graduation from high school, Jacob walked-on to the cross country team at NJCAA powerhouse, Ricks College, where he and his team won back-to-back NJCAA Cross Country Championship team titles in 2000 and 2001.
