Welcome to Olympic Marathon Trials week! We are pumped to have 2:47 marathoner, Jereny Rivera on the show to share the BEST of her hometown of Orlando, FL!

Jereny truly loves running and in the last eight years, she has transformed herself from a 5:25 marathoner to a 2:47 marathoner (she achieved that time at the Houston Marathon in 2023). Oh, and Jereny lost 50 pounds along the way, plus she is just getting started to become the fastest version of herself. Look out 2028 Olympic Trials - Jereny is coming for you!

In this chat, we dig into Jereny's progression as a runner and what her goals are for 2024. Then we talk all things ORLANDO! What a treat to get Jereny's perspective as a runner who loves her city, she knows these streets and we get the 411 for everyone traveling to Orlando for the Trials this week. 

Enjoy our conversation!
