S2 Episode 15 - Jordan McLennan
Today in Season 2, Episode 15, I talk to Gold Coast runner Jordan McLennan. Jordo has been around the running circuit for over a handful of years now. He joined the Gold Coast Run Co at the young age of 15, and after high school headed to America to Loyola Marymount University in LA to extend his running. Unfortunately his American running experience wasn’t what he had hoped for so he returned to Gold Coast Run Co in 2018 to continue chasing his dreams. Since this time, Jordan has run as fast as 30:18 in the 10k and most recently, a 2:19 in his debut marathon at the Gold Coast Marathon 2023. So as always, if you’re out for a jog, or doing the chores, throw those headphones in and enjoy hearing from Jordan as he talks about the ups and downs of elite running.
S2 Episode 14 - Dion Finocchiaro
Today in Season 2 Episode 14, I interview Melbourne ultra runner, Dion Finocchiaro. In the last handful of years Dion’s name has become synonymous with ultra running. He now holds the 50km, 50 mile and 6 hour male Australian ultra records. Furthermore, Dion’s marathon PB is an astonishing 2:19, that he set in Melbourne just two years ago. The interview starts around a discussion of his experience for the first time in Brisbane in the Marathon event, and then he delves specifically into the ultra-running world, talking all things nutrition, training weeks, coaching and footwear. So as always, whether you’re out for a run or kicking back, throw the headphones in and enjoy hearing from one of Australia’s ultra greats.
S2 Episode 13 - Jaxon Paterson-Wright
Today in Season 2, Episode 12 I interview Brisbane runner, Jaxon Paterson-Wright. Finishing school just three years ago, Jaxon is only 21 this year, but is already showing us his talent at such a young age. He has a PB of 14:57 for the 5,000m and 8:16 for the 3,000m on the track. In January this year, he was 2nd in the QA Norma Croker Shield 800m with a time of 1:55, a week later was first in the Sally Pearson 5000m. In May and June respectively, he won the QUT classic 10k and placed 5th in the Brisbane Marathon 10k.Furthermore, he most recently was 7th at Australia’s fastest parkrun – the Annual BERT 5k championships held at Sandgate 17th June. Anyways, that’s enough of impressing you with his times, it’s time for you to kick back, relax and enjoying hearing from one of Brisbane’s most talented up and coming runners.
S2 Episode 12 - Nerissa O'Donnell
Today in Season 2, Episode 12 I interview Brisbane runner, Nerissa O’Donnell. Nerissa is a fellow runner and friend through our connection as part of the BERT squad in Brisbane. From what I have learnt about Nerissa, she is crazily consistent with her training, competitive as anything and a big learner in the sport of running. With all of these things in mind, she somehow manages to juggle work and the responsibilities of three children (all of whom are under 10 years of age) day after day, week after week. This episode is highly insightful for all listeners, but particularly for women who have children or are planning to whilst maintaining their running. So as always, chill, throw the headphones in and enjoy listening to Nerissa as she talks all things running.
