In this episode of Run with Fitpage, we have Coach Ed Eyestone with us. Ed and Vikas discuss the running and training journey of the top two marathoners at US Olympic Trials 2024 - Conner Mantz and Clayton Young.

Ed Eyestone is more than just a name in the world of distance running—he's a renowned expert and seasoned coach with an impressive track record. After hanging up his own running shoes, Eyestone transitioned seamlessly into a role as a respected distance and road racing authority. From sharing insights as a columnist for Runner's World magazine to providing expert commentary for ESPN's "Race of the Month" series, his expertise is sought after far and wide. Eyestone's coaching journey has been equally remarkable, marked by multiple accolades including three-time selection as "Coach of the Year" for the Mountain West Conference. His crowning achievement came in 2019 when he led the BYU men's cross-country team to victory at the NCAA D1 Championship race, becoming the first male coach to achieve both an individual NCAA D1 Cross Country title and a national team title.

In addition to his coaching prowess, Eyestone's influence extends to the international stage, having served as head coach of Team USA at the 2017 IAAF World Cross Country Championships. His latest triumph comes in the form of coaching Conner Mantz and Clayton Young, who secured top positions in the US Olympic trials with stellar performances clocking in at 2:09:05 and 2:09:06, respectively. With Eyestone at the helm, it's no surprise that his athletes consistently excel, embodying the spirit of dedication, perseverance, and a drive for excellence that defines the world of competitive running.
