Today on the podcast I’m talking with Cindy Bulloch, an inspiring runner from Parowan, Utah.

Cindy has run two full marathons and is currently training for number three. But number three is a big one: she’s working on qualifying for Boston.

Listen in to hear Cindy talk about how she trained for her first marathon, the magic of race day, and why she tells anyone who will listen that she’s going to qualify for Boston.
