Episode 14 – Alex Teuten

On this episode I chatted to local runner Alex Teuten who agreed to come and share his running story. And what a story it is! Alex has been running since year 5 at school where he raced against other children two years older, and found he had an incredible talent for running. This talent, along with lots of hard work, good coaching and inspiration from many people and family ensured Alex continued training until he earned his England and Team GB vest. He has continued to find success with many of his races but as we hear, running at this level doesn’t come easy. It was great to hear about personal rivalries with other runners and some great stories racing in many competitions. Alex placed 4th at the Great South Run in 2017 after a tough battle in the final couple of miles. Thank you for listening to the show and I hope you enjoy.
