Joining us on this week’s episode is Sabrina Wieser, German-born but New York-based marathon runner and coach who is known online as Running Brina. Growing up in a small hometown meant that Sabrina had never considered running as an option before moving to The States. New York’s flourishing running culture captured her imagination though, and she ended up falling in love with the sport. On top of being a sub-four marathoner with a massive online following, Sabrina is also very serious about lifting.
We are lucky to have her on the show today to talk about - you guessed it - all things running and gymming! She lets us in on how she decided to take both sports so seriously in the first place, and you'll hear about all the dietary and workout logistics involved in making such an aim sustainable. Sabrina tells us about the marathons she has completed across the world, her training community in NYC, her ultra high carb diet, favorite running spots, and the city as a network of bridges, hills, and loops. We also spend a bit of time speaking about her quite unintentional trajectory into being a social media personality, her love of her day job, and why a social media-based career is not for her, even though it sometimes feels like a job anyway. Sabrina is an inspiration and her down to earth attitude about the value of sticking to a goal is infectious, so tune in for a great interview with an incredible human being.
Key Points From This Episode:
“What I had to figure out was really, ‘Okay. When I’m running, let’s say, five times a week, when do I go to the gym and train legs?’” — @runningbrina [0:17:24.4]
“A runner doesn’t have to look a certain way. They come in all shapes and sizes, ages, and paces, and that’s really the place where I feel most comfortable.” — @runningbrina [0:22:20.1]
“I went to the Dominican Republic with some of my friends who were born there. They took us to Santo Domingo and we ran the Santo Domingo Half. That’s really what we did. We explored the city running. It was amazing.” — @runningbrina [0:54:05.1]
