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

9:40 - Does having a full-time job and a family help Dimoff's performance on the track? 

13:15 - What was it like to race against Gwen Jorgensen in such a highly anticipated race? 

16:50 - Dimoff's experience in running after giving birth  

18:50 - Why she still describes running as a hobby 

20:00 - What is a typical day like with training, managing her kids and going to work at Nike? 

27:03 - Jojo and Kevin discuss Sydney McLaughlin’s weekend triple, Mondo Duplantis’ world junior record, and the upcoming Commonwealth Games

Samba/Benjamin Pt. I, McLaughlin Debut Headline Shanghai DL

The first six-ish weeks of the professional track season have offered one clear lesson: the late World Championships aren’t going to tamp down fast times. From Michael Norman’s 43.45 to Shaunae Miller-Uibo’s 49.05, it’s feeling like mid-August already. Perhaps the non-championship year in 2018 caused some energy and emotion to be bottled up, only being released in a year with a clear championship target.
