Abdi Abdirahman's running bio is quite remarkable. After moving to the USA at age twelve from Somalia, Abdi went on to discover his running talent after impressing a US Coach following what was Abdi’s longest run in a pair of jeans. Following a Nike sponsorship Abdi’s career soared. It spanned 4 Olympic Games and in February 2020 Abdi at 43 years of age, he became the US’s oldest mature Olympian where he snagged 3rd place just behind episode 209 featured performer Jake Riley at the US Marathon Olympic Trials.

Abdi boasts some impressive PB’s 2:08:56 in the marathon, 60:29 in the Half Marathon just behind Haile Gebrselassie as you’ll hear Abdi reference today, 28:11 for 10km and 13:13 for 5000m. Abdi took out 3rd place in the 2019 New York City Marathon and you will enjoy learnings today from Abdi around the power of staying relaxed, not letting your age define your performance or your perspective.
