With over 8 years and 500+ episodes in our ever-growing archive, this week we are delighted to bring you The Athletics Legends Episode which brings you a collection of classic moments in one jam-packed episode from over the years with Irish athletic and Olympic legends including Sonia O'Sullivan, Ronnie Delany, Sinead Diver, Derval O'Rourke and much more.
Topics in this exciting bumper episode include the psychology of sport, mental toughness, inner monologue, dealing with injuries, criticism and much more.
For over a year now our listeners have been aware of Jarlath's endeavours to run 2,000km in one year for youth mental health charity Jigsaw.ie. It has formed an integral part of our weekly Irishman Running Abroad series with Sonia O'Sullivan which has seen Jarlath take a look at the world of athletics with completely fresh eyes (and tired legs).
