Neely Spence Gracey is not only a superstar runner, she’s a superstar person. I met Neely many years ago at the Skirt Sports Half Marathon. She was a young, aspiring runner who was fortunately unsponsored at the time and looking for a training race. I gave her a skirt and a free entry and she won the race handily! I felt like she was a baby just getting ready for a big adventure.
Today Neely has a baby! She’s also an Adidas sponsored athlete, a world class marathoner, and a hands-on, passionate coach of runners of all levels. I have always appreciated her positive outlook, something that I think we need now more than ever.
Today we talk about:
- Becoming a runner
- Breakouts, Burnout & Comebacks
- The importance of changing things up
- Her untraditional start to marriage
- Coaching the coach
- Pregnancy and running
- “Life as you know it will end. 100% But for the better”
- Positive mindset power
- And so much more
