Jared Ward is an Olympian and 2:09 marathoner, but he might be more proud of his role as a father to 4, professor at BYU, virtual running coach, or ambassador to a Shark-Tank-featured company (MyoStorm). He is fast on the roads but "juggles" it all well off the race course as well.

In this interview, Kara and Chris dig in with Jared on his early running days and his patient progression from 21 minute 5K runner in early high school to finishing 6th at the Olympic Marathon in Rio. He talks about the object that inspired him to join his coach Ed Eyestone at BYU and the song that was stuck in his head for the entire Olympic Marathon Trials in 2016.

He discusses advice from his high school coach about goal setting, gives us all a lesson from his sister on what real balance looks like, and shares the insights he learned on Shark Tank that apply to his running career.

Plus, we talk about shoes and carbon plates, Alberto Salazar and Galen Rupp, and Jared's statistical chances at the upcoming Olympic Marathon Trials. Jared's positive outlook on running and life is contagious, and we thank him for the hope he brings to our sport!
