Welcome to Episode 66 of the Final Surge Podcast where we welcome back Coach Jay Johnson. Jay was our very first guest back in Episode 1. In this interview we cover two very distinct topics. We talk about his site High School Running Coach and his upcoming clinic which has a fantastic lineup, and we also talk about his Simple Marathon Training book along with the topics of marathon training and fueling. We decided to break this podcast up into two episodes as they were distinctly different. So in this episode, we will be talking about his high school training clinic which Final Surge will be helping sponsor. If you have any interest in learning from the best coaches in the country, you will want to be there, and it is very affordable.

You have John O’Malley – Sandburg (IL): John’s runner Dylan Jacobs lead much of the Footlocker regional race and is now on his way to the Footlocker National finals.
Dan Iverson – Naperville North (IL): Girls coach whose team created one of the most dramatic moments at Nike Cross Country Nationals when they came from way back to come within 5 points of knocking off heavy favorites Fayetteville Manilas.
Doug Soles – Great Oak (CA): Boys team came in 6th and girls team came in 8th at NXN.
Jonathan Dalby – Mountain Vista (CO): Boys team came in 3rd and girls team came in 6th at NXN.
Joan Hunter – Loudoun Valley (VA): Joan was our guest here in Episode 64. Joan lead Loudoun Valley’s boys team not only to a perfect score at their state meet but also to a National Championship at NXN.
Can you tell us a little about how this came together?
What topics will they be covering?
With 5 of the best coaches in the country it is amazing that these top coaches are sharing their knowledge and not trying to keep anything a secret.
Jay also talks about why coaches should stick around after the clinic is over on Saturday night and maybe even for Sunday morning.
