Stephanie Twell is one of those amazing athletes who remind you that, with heart, focus, hard training and a positive attitude, one can challenge the walls we put up in front of our dreams.

How fast does she want to go? Stephanie Twell needs a 2:29:30 Olympic qualifying mark, plus a bit faster to get some attention from the British selectors.
We spent 20 minutes with Stephanie Twell on Thursday, October 24. Stephanie was charming, thoughtful, focused and obviously still enjoys the pursuit of goals and challenges of running. Her finishing speed could make her quite dangerous in Tokyo in 2020.
Special thanks to Stephanie Twell for her honesty. Special thanks to Brian Eder for managing the audio production of the Sound Cloud interview.
