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?
