We sit down to chat with Alan Webb on the 10 year anniversary of his American Record in the Mile!
Docs is out of town so Farley and Joanna lead the in studio discussion – except for the part where Docs applauds Strava and talks about his race in not quite Tahoe. Its hard to explain, you will just have to listen. We are joined in studio by the American record holder in the mile, Alan Webb (@alan_webb1). It is exactly 10 years since he set the record. His younger brother Chris tags along too. We talk about Alans life after professional running. His new business, Elite Onsite Fleet Services. Next we cover the fact that he was also the best miler ever in High School and all the pressure that came along with that. There is a brother therapy session, we talk about Alan becoming a professional and some of the ups and downs of his career. We recap the mile that broke Steve Scott’s 25 year old record – the record that has stood for 10 years now. Finally, we play some Alan Webb trivia to see if he can name his top 5 races of all time. Farley and Joanna do some promotion of next weeks show, and Farley puts in a Easter Egg for the first time of any of the shows he has edited.
