This week on The Rundown Maddy Kelly and Kate Van Buskirk bring you all the results and drama from the roads, trails and cross-country courses.
[2:13] Blazing times were run at the Frankfurt Marathon, including a Guinness World Record for fastest marathon by a father and son. (SPOILER: a 59-year-old ran sub-2:30!). The Valencia Half-Marathon and Marine Corps Marathon also yielded exciting and speedy finishes, including redemption for Micheal Wardian in the inaugural Marine Corps 50K.
[10:20] Maddy breaks down the U Sport Cross-Country Conference results. With multiple surprise upsets, predicting next week’s national champions is nearly impossible. (Send us your dark horse picks for U Sport XC!)

I’m still trying to process everything that happened a week ago! Waving this flag means the world to me ❤️🇺🇸! I’ve overcome so much this year. I’m thankful for my life and what my body can do 🙏. I don’t forget the struggles and knowing how hard I worked for this moment. My low moments are what gives me the strength to transcend! – I stayed relentless and positive through it all… 9 bathroom stops, 2 puking sessions, 1 clothing change, 2 power naps, 3 beer moments 🍺, 1 burrito, 1 sandwich, and 0 lost toenails or blisters (@squirrels_nut_butter 👌). It was 24Hrs of smiles, high fives, and positive encouragement all around 😄👋. Our rockstar team on the side was amazing! 🙌🇺🇸 – At about 150+ miles it was puke and rally 🤮🏁. Time to go Beast Mode 🦁! I dug deep into my soul and dropped the pace to 7:26-8:00 1500m splits the last 2+ hrs. I imagined myself as Rocky throwing 12 rounds of punches 🥊. I got into my own zen-like headspace and visualized being out on the roads in Alamosa. It was inspiring to watch my Team USA teammates digging deep as well 👊! We raised each other up and earned it🥇🥇. – 📷: Sami from Finland – #AirCamille #Albi24h #Ultrarunning #RunItFast #MondayMotivation #PukeandRally #BeRelentless #BeastMode #RockyMode #UltraGrit #TeamUSA #NikeTrail #Nikerunning #JustDoIt #Coros #ExplorePerfection #Unived #NathanSports #WeRunWithYou #SquirrelsNutButter
