Today we get to chat with my friend and awesome runner, Roger Rholdon. I have the privilege of coaching him! Roger is a husband, father, and an associate professor in the College of Nursing. From a training standpoint, he’s an acute care pediatric nurse practitioner. Roger and I raced together in the past in south Louisiana. When he was set to run the Voodoo 130, which is the same course as the Rouge-Orleans that I ran in 2015, he asked me to help coach him. He did a great job putting in the work and ended up winning the race! Before running Voodoo, he DNF’d at Rocky Raccoon - an experience we talk about in this episode. This year’s race was his redemption at Rocky! We dive into how everything unfolded for his race and we also talk about his background in running and life. Roger is a great guy and strives to maintain balance while training for these big races. We really had an awesome conversation that I’ll know you enjoy!
