Listener Question asks the group as dads how would they go about getting their kids into running, which transitions into a group Moose on the Loose into the hype and scrutiny placed on junior athletes who get burned out from the sport.

Ky Robinson chats with Brady about his selection for the cross country team, what he was doing at the time of the Stromlo World Cross Trials, and talks through the discretion process. Ky gives an overview of his racing history and the nuances of racing on an indoor track versus outdoors. He then takes us back to growing up in Queensland, training reluctantly as a junior and getting progressively better and more receptive.

Ky talks about how he joined Stanford as a steeplechaser, and his focus as a student before going over the training and coaching setup in Stanford, the typical week and his favourite sessions as well as how the depth of talent has grown in just the short time he’s been based there.

Ky recaps the experience of last year’s World Athletics Championships in Eugene, running against the world’s best at the 5000m, the pep talk he got from Nick Bideau as well as his performance at Commonwealth Games. 

The conversation rounds out over cross country, from winning the Nuttycombe Invitational in Wisconsin to then finishing 10th at the NCAA XC Championships, his expectations for the World Cross Country Championships at Bathurst and what he enjoys outside of running.
