The 1609 Podcast

Jan 17, 2019

The Miles to Trials interviews are going to be interviews with runners who have qualified for the US Olympic Trials in our typical interview format. Sam Roecker was kind enough to be our first interview, and we were thrilled to talk to her.

Sam Roecker finished third at the US Marathon Championships at CIM in 2018 with a 2:30:25 marathon time behind Emma Bates and Stephanie Bruce. We got to talk to her about what she does for a living, how she fits running in around her job, how she got to where she is from middle school to now, and what's next for her in the run up to the 2020 US Olympic Marathon Trials and Tokyo.
