Each week Canadian Running staff writer Maddy Kelly and Shakeout host Kate Van Buskirk bring you a recap from the exciting world of running.
This week on The Rundown we’re joined by Lucia Stafford and her coach Terry Radchenko. Last Friday Lucia ran a world-leading indoor 1500m time of 4:05.70 at the Toronto Track and Field Centre, paced by her teammate and Rundown co-host Maddy Kelly.
In this episode we learn how two athletes and a coach managed to put on an official race in the midst of COVID-19. We chat about Lucia’s incredible performance, and about what’s next for these mid-distance phenoms. We also discuss the inequalities of training and racing during the pandemic. Finally, we break down some of the other top performances of the last week!
