Goucher steps through the door to success

Kara Goucher celebrated a fine bronze World Championship medal in the women’s 10,000m final in Osaka.

Kara reflecting on leaving her training in Boulder, Colorado in 2005, to train with coach Alberto Salazar in Portland, Oregon.

“Madison had great coaches,” said Goucher, “but Portland also had great doctors. I’m doing 90 miles a week, more than I’ve ever run but what takes the time every day is the drills and stretching, the ART (Active Release Therapy, an assisted stretching technique), the massage.”

“It’s more than a full-time job. I don’t really do anything else.”
