“Let the Race Come to You” -Interview with JJ Stark-Modlin

In this episode we speak with Academy member JJ Stark-Modlin. Once upon a time she hated running and was even advised that, because of her injuries, she’d never be able to run a full marathon.

She has since run 27 marathons and dropped her finishing time from 5:06 down to 3:32.

After a ten year journey she qualified for Boston at the Revel Big Cottonwood Marathon in Utah.

Her coach told her “Let the race come to you”.
