Jacob Puzey lives in Calgary and is first and foremost a husband and a father of five children. We talk to Jacob about running, directing races, parenting, and coaching. Jacob has excelled at a number of distances, from marathon to ultramarathon, and even holds the world record for the fastest 50-mile effort on a treadmill. We talk with Jacob about how the running community has played a critical role in his life, including introducing him to the woman of his dreams and starring in a documentary with his brother, Tommy Rivers. Jacob emphasizes longevity and sustainability in running and is a student of the sport. We learn what makes Jacob an effective running coach and how he and his wife like to give back to the running community. Jacob finishes by telling us about how his company Peak Run Performance is seeking to make running as accessible as possible by providing coaching, nutrition, and others health services to diverse communities speaking different languages.
