Podcast: Jess Trengove on the mind of the marathon runner, the complex world of the 'part-time&#
Marathon runner Jess Trengove represented Australia at the London and Rio Olympics, and took out a bronze medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The 29 year old talks about the psychology of marathon running, and reveals how she breaks down mental barriers and overcomes pain.
The physical toll is perhaps more obvious, but Jess has the advantage of being a practicing physiotherapist.
She juggles sport with work like most Olympians, who don’t get the funding to pursue their craft full time. Jess explains why this is both a blessing and a curse.
Sponsors are critical for part time athletes, and Jess talks about how she manages her corporate relationships.
And on top of all of that, she’s also building a new business with her brother, Melbourne footballer Jack Trengove.
Jess talks about the influence of her elite sporting family, lessons learned throughout her career and much more.
