Socialing The Distance
with Larry Eder
Featuring Joe Klecker
One of the absolutely satisfying parts of my job is doing interviews. The truth is, while I do research on the coaches, athletes and key players that I interview, I always learn something new.
I knew both of Joe’s parents, both fine athletes. Joe’s father, Barney Klecker held the 50 mile American record and the 50k as well. Joe’s Mom, Janice was a 1992 Olympian at the marathon and is the American record holder at 50k.
Joe Klecker is a 9 time All American and 11 time NCAA qualifier at the University of Colorado. Now coached by Dathan Ritzenhein, and competing for the On Athletic Club, Joe has just set PBs at 1,500m (3:37.55) and 5,000m (13:28.98).
I enjoyed the conversation with Joe Klecker and hope you will too!
Special thanks to Joe Klecker.
