On The Run: Stanford Invite 10,000m Runner-Up Carrie Dimoff

Carrie Dimoff describes running as a hobby, but the 34-year-old’s results on the track and the roads put her among the best in the country. In her latest race, Dimoff finished second in the Stanford Invitational 10,000, sandwiched in between higher-profile runners Gwen Jorgensen and Karissa Schweizer. 

On this week’s episode of On The Run, Jojo and Kevin talk to Dimoff about her huge personal best at Stanford, balancing a full-time job and family life with running, her preferred event, and why she is still competing 10 years after she contemplated walking away from the sport. 

After the interview, Jojo and Kevin discuss the performances by Sydney McLaughlin and Mondo Duplantis last weekend and highlight some key events at the Commonwealth Games.

Highlights:

2:30 - How marathon training helped lead Dimoff to her big personal best at Stanford

6:00 - Dimoff's odyssey to distance running that began with her running hurdles in high school
