This interview with John O’Malley was a lot of fun, and covered a variety of topics. It’s well worth your time.
John is the only person to have coached two Footlocker Champions (Lukas Verzbicus and Dylan Jacobs). He’s also had tremendous success coaching 800m runners: 26 boys have run under 1:58 and 9 under 1:54 under his guidance.
Two other resources on Coach O’Malley. This article from the summer of 2018, by Tony Holler, gives some great insights into his training.
Coach O’Malley also presented twice at the 2018 Boulder Running Clinics and you can watch five excerpts from his presentations here.
