In this week's episode, host Courtney Hufsmith talks with Olympic 5,000m runner Jess O'Connell about her experiences competing in both the Canadian and American collegiate systems — and why she feels one isn't actually necessarily better than the other. Plus, she discusses her feelings of imposter syndrome when starting out in running, and her secret to running a great 1,500m race.
