Podcast Episode 17: Claire Bird (From Mother’s Day Runs to 3 Boston Marathons)

Listen now.

A seed is acquired a generation before watching her father run the Montreal Marathon, planted years later at a Mother’s Day 10K in Calgary, and grows into 3 Boston Marathon finish lines of her own – and counting.

Our guest today is a wife and mother from Calgary who has self-coached her way to capturing 4 of her 6 stars in the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Join Claire Bird and Troy as they discuss her Marathon journey and how she has used consistency, the force of will, and an ear-to-ear grin to cross some of the biggest finish lines in the world. 

One of the goals for The Athlinks Podcast is to give voice to not just the elite endurance athletes of the world, but to folks who are crossing their own epic finish lines while juggling work and life along with training and racing.
