Interview with Peter Bromka

Peter Bromka is an Oregon based marathoner (with a PB 2:19:40) with the Bowerman Track elite group; an independent consultant, Dad and a great exponent of long-form writing (On https://www.peterbromka.com/ and for Runners World). In the build-up to his 2nd attempt at a US Olympic time at this year’s Boston Marathon, I was keen to understand Peter’s mindset and psychological strategies and what makes him tick.

This episode covers some of his time from inside the labs & races at Nike, his background, history, and upbringing with running in his family. We discuss in detail his attitude, discipline and focus for training and races and how he views his journey both in and out of racing, training, and writing.
