Olympic Goals & Dreams


Thursday, August 25th, 2016

This past Summer, two breakout runners from the Boulder-based, Zensah & Brooks supported Roots Running Project competed for their first time in the US Olympic Track & Field Trials. Alia Gray & Noah Droddy’s advice & inspiration was something we wanted to share with all aspiring runners.

“Put yourself in the company of good people, whether that be training partners, coaches, or sponsors. You may be the one on the start line, but it will take a village to get you there.”

– Noah Droddy

  • If you could do the race over again, what would you do differently?
  • What advice would you give any aspiring professional runners?
