Carrie chats with elite runner Aliphine Tuliamuk! They discuss her (awesome!) 3rd place finish at the Rotterdam Marathon, her training plan to get in shape to make the US Olympic Team in 2020, and why running is so important to her.
Recorded April 30, 2019
Aliphine Tuliamuk is a two-time winner of the USATF Running Circuit (2016 & 2017) and a former USATF Cross Country Champion (2017). In 2019, Aliphine placed third at the Rotterdam Marathon, where she ran a personal best 2:26:50.
Aliphine was born in the village of Posoy, Kenya, the home of former marathon World Record Holder Tegla Loroupe. When Aliphine was 12, Tegla visited her school to speak about opportunities for women in sports. During that encounter, Tegla gave Aliphine the first pair of running shoes she ever owned and planted in her the desire to one day pursue a running career of her own.
Aliphine is based in Flagstaff, AZ and competes on behalf of HOKA NAZ Elite.
