RunBuzz Running Community - Hildee Weiss

In this episode of the RunBuzz podcast, I interview Hildee Weiss. Hildee is part of our RunBuzz Facebook group and our first featured member of our community in some time.

We discuss:

  • How Hildee got started running after years of inactivity.
  • Building confidence: How Hildee’s trainer challenged her to run her first 5k, long before she felt ready.
  • How she overcame fear and lack of self-confidence to go on to run more races.
  • Her favorite race experience this past March at the Jerusalem marathon where she ran the 10k.
  • Hildee’s use of strength training to improve her overall running and pace.
  • Hildee’s use of swimming as a form of cross training.
  • The mental hurdle of possibly wanting to run a marathon.
  • How to address the feeling of quitting during a run.
  • The importance of total body fitness
