RunBlogRun presents Socialing The Distance with Larry Eder, featuring Lance Brauman, PURE Athletics
Lance Brauman is the coach of the PURE Athletics. Among Brauman’s athletes, one would find Shaunae Miller Uibo, 2016 Olympic champion at 400m, and Noah Lyles, 2019 WC at 200m. While he coaches mostly sprinters , he also coaches one long jumper, and advises a decathlete.

A fine athlete in high school and college, Lance is a no nonsense kind of coach. One knows where they stand with Coach Brauman. Once I asked Noah Lyles how he knows when Coach Brauman believes he was ready to race? “Coach smiles.”
We spent 40 minutes with Lance, via Zoom a couple of weeks ago.
I have always admired Lance, and have been lucky to observe him with his athletes. Lance instills confidence in his athletes. He teaches them how to hone their skills, and manage the challenges in the world of elite athletics.
This is clip 3 of the Socialing the Distance series on Lance. The topic of the clip is Noah Lyles’s win at 200m in Doha WC last fall. Noah’s win in Doha was his first global championship title, and the 200m event was spectacular, with a battle between three fine sprinters.
Special thanks to Lance Brauman for his time and the Shoe Addicts (Mike Deering and Adam Johnson-Eder) on capturing the interview, and managing the production!
