An Irishman Abroad

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”Your Questions For Sonia Answered”

October 19, 2021
This week we open the mailbag. It’s been bulging for months with a backlog of your questions for Sonia on training, nutrition, injuries and more. Not only does Jarlath get the chance to ask all your questions for the GOAT but he also gets to dip into the raft of questions he has never had the chance to ask. In classic no-nonsense Sonia style, we get the whole truth on each subject and an account of the worst questions she’s ever been asked. There’s even time in the second half for Jarlath to ask if he is difficult to coach. The answer might surprise you. There’s a review of our club event from last weekend and the announcement of an in person event this Sunday in Dublin.
