"I gotta finish this race... I gotta finish this race"
With 2 hours still to go in the USATF 50K National Championship, this phrase came drifting into Preston Johnson's mind. With amazing grit, Preston did just that. And not only did Preston finish, but he earned himself the title of 50k National Champion along with a guaranteed spot on the USA Team in the 50k World Championships.
Preston is not unfamiliar with the idea of running through trials, injury, and disappointment. In college, he faced many injuries, and eventually fought through surgery. Preston took these trials and developed a running theory that pushed him to be ELITE.
On this bonus episode of Running Unbroken, Preston shares with us the UNREAL experience of racing and winning the USATF 50K National Championship. His mindset, struggles, excitement, and GRIT with the entire experience is amazing!
Preston also takes time to share with us more about his running journey, and how he found himself in the elite field. His thoughts, experiences, and advice will help any struggling runner "adapt and push through, rather than wait for the obstacles to move for you".
