Work After #MeToo: A Restaurant Company Tries To Change Its Culture
Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from the fresh market, offering prepared sides desserts in ready to heat meals for your thanksgiving celebration, plus fresh Turkey spiral sliced Honey ham and more details in recipes available at the fresh market dot com. Now, we have the story of what happened to business after it was forced to change its leadership. John bench was arguably the best known chef in New Orleans, and he was also the owner of a New Orleans restaurant group, then he was accused of sexual harassment. He's hardly the only top executive to go during the metoo movement, many entertainment and finance in media companies including NPR have dismissed executives NPR's. Yuki Noguchi, followed up on what happened at those New Orleans restaurants a year ago, the New Orleans times picky and published shattering expose on celebrity. Chef John bash it detailed twenty-five allegations. That depicted a heroin workplace in which bash belittled and fondled workers or tried to coordinate them to have sex Dominique Rene. Perry. A former server and one of bashes accuser says she was terminated after her allegations appeared in the story. She says such behaviour permeated bashes restaurants groping sexual advances verbally, physically constant commentary. The commentary was oh God that story became a watershed moment for the restaurant industry. Two weeks prior similar allegations against Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein had emerged kickstarting the metoo movement that spotlight then turned on bash a local hero who helped champion Creole cuisine on the national stage. Hello, I'm chef John Blechen. Welcome to New Orleans cleaning up the mess fell to Shannon, white. She was thirty two and chief of operations when she replaced bash as CEO we first met at a bustling lunch spot serving southern biscuits and shrimp and grits one of eleven remaining restaurants in the group white is trying to revamp that people didn't. L safe coming forward. It's like a kick in the stomach, and we have to do something. Like right now. Overnight fishes national fame turned into a liability it left, a scar on the restaurant group, and it's twelve hundred employees at the time staff. Defected seven restaurants, eventually closed or spun off the company rebranded itself to be R G to erase his name. It was hard guest falling and being hateful on the phone and seeing all this stuff in the media free-flowing alcohol and late night work. Make restaurants a notorious hotbed for sexual harassment, especially so near the glow of bourbon street white says, she felt both public and internal pressure to change her company's culture, and you have employees and you have guests in orders. But you can't push BAAs and say, all right. We're going to redo this at all what can we do to starts the may change. While the wheels are already emotion she had to keep. The restaurants running and at the same time dramatically changed the culture the company allowed me in to see how they try to do that over several months. They let me sit in on meetings and talk to employee's. I watched as they grappled with how to build a new culture is I opening now people think it's all about sexual harassment. I'm like it's so much bigger than that. She says it's tied up with trust communication, power, dynamics and respect, but initially white needed to ferret out and fire that Apple's the company set up an anonymous tip line that led to investigations eventually four managers and a dozen other workers were dismissed many others left over time. A lot of people aren't gonna make it through this. And as a culture starts, the shifts. You see very clearly and brings to light the people at aren't willing to ship with it. One early change included ending employees alcohol discounts, which white says helped fuel misbehavior but many new rules. Couldn't be as. Cut and dry. White recalls. How in the initial weeks of the scandal? She proposed banning dating among workers some workers pushed back the company hired Don Hazen as its first human resources director. She also pushed back. It is not realistic. And we're setting ourselves up for failure. Instead, they now require workers to disclose relationships to avoid potential conflicts of interest as in that case white and hazing say soliciting input helps set realistic rules and get buy in from workers and sometimes policies evolved over time take its policy on touching in August. I watched the back and forth as white and hazing met to discuss. Updates to the employee handbook with restaurant managers, white poses. The question should the language bar customers from touching staff that prompts the managers to debate we have regulars that come in that are just gonna they're gonna hug, you know, in in their family. They're like family at the restaurant. But but in another context, he says hugs are unwelcomed has to be that gut feeling. I mean, we have to read it two months after that meeting in late October hazing leads employee orientation. For fifty new bartenders cooks and servers the company's preparing to open its first new restaurant since the scandal. Okay. It's everybody seated ready. Here touching comes up again with greater nuance. I know in the restaurants. They're very close quarters Hayes in suggests warning coworkers before squeezing by say coming behind or something like that to give them a chance to get out of the way. And if it's a customer being inappropriate, tell your manager. She tells them re Bernhardt says such open discussion makes a difference. Bernhardt is chef de cuisine at Dominica one of the groups Italian restaurants in the past. She says personnel decisions were left to a manager's discretion. But now Bernhardt is required to report any problems immediately. She says white and hazing are very responsive. We're going to solve this right now, we're gonna fix this. Let's follow through. I think that's kind of like the biggest ships that I've seen. It's still too early to say what the effect of all these changes might mean. But some say the problems haven't gone away Brett Anderson is the reporter who broke the times picayune story in the years since the story came out. You know, I spent a lot of time listening to restaurant workers mostly women. Tell me about the problems faced with harassment, and in those phone calls aren't stopping really, including he says some workers who say little has changed within the best restaurants through a Representative bescht declined. An interview for this story Anderson. Says his continued ownership remains controversial. I know that it matters to some employees. And I know it matters to some customers that he is still an owner of the company even white admits that in subtle ways benches ownership still weighs on the company goal in the past was always to give ownership to the shafts over time. I'd like to see that speed up. Now, she says she wants to set a vision without bench around. You can Gucci NPR news New Orleans.

You on social media and you'll feature on our social war, which is our favorites to read out on the show. I of this week running on bear got to be ten out of ten because I pay my friend to his seven-minute PB of the Oakland marathon twisted.

Thirdly, dragging my son Ben out of bed early. So he could run nineteen twenty seven on the hardest. Helius slowest park when in the UK bus true. It is really hard nineteen twenty seven is really fast. By the main reason, why is it ten ten Ron is because very good running friend of mine and show and the show Steve Shaughnessy who was religiously listened to marry from talk for at least six years reported as operation at much the Royal Infirmary on Friday had gone even better than expected. Thanks to the dedication of staff, and that he'll be back running soon as he can next up on Instagram. It's Joel Nolan wrists. Sorry, john. I think he's done fold who says he is heavy.

I think that's over the finish line to the finish line of the Snowdonia marathon in Wales ten at ten he says, very good last off marathon, I have done I think this one I did it. I'll have to say miss Ruth, see on Instagram whenever you want around you is miserable. And you just can't understand why Venice marathon ten ten Hawaii Venice marathon runners fantastic. Now, speaking of the Venice marathon, did you? I mean, it's a pretty looks pretty wet in that picture, but there's a fantastic video which will post a leak to on this week's show notes. If you haven't seen. The video of the flooding in Venice runners battled strong headwinds the entire way said Bretagne Japan running news sees point to point as well. And so you would have headwinds the hallway if you combine that with a high tide, and they series Lee flooded the last three kilometers the calls through Venice. Was Ethiopian winner Gabri megatonne. I knew he almost came to a stop. He slow to walk. He found waves breaking across the calls ahead of lost over a minute on his projected time slogging through the water. But he's still took the win in two thirteen twenty three. I mean, it's up to people's knees in in some pas on on the video Yuki cow Chee was in the field to he was expected to challenge for the win. It was a career worst for Yuki of two twenty seven forty three. Instead now what happened today when asked you net was good. I have no idea. Why couldn't run today? I tell you. It's a great. So I broke three hours after the first time. It's a great race. He might be slightly net downhill run by. But it's point point it starts. Well, it did when I did it starts in a place called straw on about forty two caraway. And then you run you run in a big long kind of sort of straight line all the way into Venice. And so we on the right day. It's super crazy fast. As you come in. You come across the big bridge coming, but it's cold become a crisis massive bridge. Drop down to Venice itself. And then in the last kilometer, there's says fourteen I think in the report by Felton thirteen but anyway, whatever thirteen or fourteen Lil bridges got over the canals, and you can just see in the video is just underwater. Crazy crazy. I mean, you know. I snuck in by minute and a half or something on live still made other know Helen going by she wants very three thirty that day going by about ten seconds. So she wouldn't have done Gusset win, you if you all the way there, and you were on the river, and you seconds inside. And then you're needy needy water and you'd go. There's also a new world record is that interesting. Which one year after his compatriots Jocelyn chip caused guy broke the women's world record of immediate mouth and de Valencia Trinidad Alfonse while pretty name for rice Kenya's eyebrow ham, kept him broke the men's world record. Oh, there's a star. What does the star many? It has still retification because this is from the W F website. So I spent after he drew things to get it ratified fully. Oh, okay. Gold label road race on Sunday. Clocking fifty eight eighteen to take five seconds off. The Mark set by our trousers night two thousand ten on a perfect day for endurance events. They say slight wind and eleven degrees. See the race opened according to the plan with the main pack parts in the opening five kilometers in thirteen. Fifty six by ten k the pace at dropped slightly as a fifteen man lead pack, fifteen men through ten k twenty eight oh two. I mean, do you know, how many British blocks of run twenty eight oh two on the road for just ten K won't be many many most? Yeah. If that problem. But shortly after is the long legged kipton breakway the rest of the pack say W F with incredibly began to cover each climate. You're in a stunning to forty four which is that twenty seven twenty five ten K Pax. The fifteen k split of just forty one forty seven seconds slower than today's equivalent from his well record run suggested that he was on course to break his PB fifty nine nine six weeks ago. The Kenyan reached twenty km fifty five eighteen on his way to world half-marathon which sorry take three seconds off today's previous well fifty five twenty one sound his way to world half marathon of fifty eight twenty three having covered the second tank section in twenty seven sixteen. No British man's ever on twenty seven. That's fair. The second ten K of a half marathon doesn't have to be racially go for ten caters. So you could have for example, headwind, ten K turnarounds. How in ten K and you could run twenty seven sixteen and I wouldn't count for ten k road record because point to point. I'm sure the same rules apply. Seven seven sixteen for the second ten K values proper after say that is. Possibly is that I think the world ten k records twenty six on the road a car member. We'll have a look anyway, he stroked home they saying fifty eighteen bring world record back to his country's possession semi one zero being his predecessor in two thousand and seven. I didn't know that. Meanwhile, here's now the venue of both men's and women's who, of course, that meant. Did raise? If you I rise in being really, we talk about again, we talk about in a moment about why that could have raised a few eyebrows Callum was also in the race. He ran sixty one minutes on the nose, right? Wait to this ready. Sixty one minutes on the nose for sixteenth place because the top ten all in top ten men. Mayo finishes all inside sixty minutes. In fact, ninth was fifty nine twenty nine three men broke fifty nine minutes as only the third time. That's happened in the same race in ten men broke sixty minutes, and that has never happened before. Good grief after say, just go from a slight tangent. I do wonder what kept show gay could do if he really went for it. I mean, he'd never really seen him do it. Now. I mean, he just ran the second off of American didn't even sixty thirty. So you would think that he could run. That quick. At least I'm looking I'm looking on ten so path ten. Seven British men have broken twenty eight minutes, Nick rose, fastest twenty seven thirty four by that some shearing it wasn't. So they didn't that twenty seven that was point to point calls twenty seven thirty four so kicked him ran twenty seven sixteen for the second ten k now we know that wasn't legal, but it's still fasten any other Britons everyone on the road because only nine Brits. No sorry. Seven Brits have broken twenty eight minute. Steve jones. John doughty Steve Harris. Mark Scrutton, Mike Riley, MO Farah Nick in the women's race somebody which was held alongside the men's event. So not separate start the women cruise, we five Cain. Fifteen thirty nine knish. May they went through fifteen K in forty seven eighteen after running fifteen forty two for the previous five ks and he four women in the front group at that point. But then with eight hundred meters to go it was the Ethiopian Galata burqa who won the indoor fifteen hundred meter title in the same city back in two thousand eight she used her track pedigree to you to unleash your change of speed. She put in a search and she ran one oh six eleven to take just over two minutes of previous best which was sixty eighteen which she sat in Valencia last year. So yeah, I mean that's rapid sixty six minute finish for the women and fifty eight minute finish for the men, and Jonathan gold that a brilliant. Piece on let's run raising some questions, actually, he said in what other Spokane someone break a major world record and ninety nine percent of the fan base. Does not know who is good question. Feeder is it Majuro record half marathon. I'm not I've challenged that. Get your point. Yeah. Had just had major hits us that really go for it. Do they? I mean looking down the down the ranking list now. Now, it's. You just wouldn't know, you know, even nine headed in two thousand and two twenty seven hundred ten k the statement that the goat makes is ninety nine percent of the fan base. That's ninety nine percent of people that follow vettix and road running and know about half marathon running. They don't know who he is now. So it's one hundred percent if anybody else probably ninety nine point nine percent he goes on to say long distance running where many top athletes hail from rural villages in east Africa. It's possible to approach the pinnacle of road running without any name recognition in this. Your race director on agent says go you probably never heard of Abraham kicked him before yesterday. And he says that where he is a man who's fulltime job is to cover professional running. Go confesses. He'd never heard of him either the rice caused it as a few questions, and then that's run. Were quick to point a few of those things one. I call see so fast is he definitely thirteen point one miles and the race director one man will. But tele? Got in touch. I think his last year in Racine. Mayo to let's run saying it hurts me to read in your preview of the Duke by marathon about the distance of the Valencia half marathon your comment. Ironically questioning the correct measurement of our race is unfortunate and saddens me. All races are either black gold label measured by international Williams w have professionals controlled by international judges and the distance must be ratified in a few weeks. So I guess because there is a world record on the cool. The cool premise that in the last two risk. I bet they then have to go and remeasure the course to ensure that is half where we sold our forward with the great Scottish Vam. Where was it? Callum Hawkins ran the and it was a few me to shoot a Scottish record or something hundred more few. I think, but, but then, you know, clearly lows people thought it was show. They went back can be measured. It found that show, and I'm sure. You you you wouldn't get away with it? I wouldn't have thought for world record. It's too easy to it's too easy to measure courses and look at routes. These days, isn't it? So it's too easy to say. Well, here's everybody's GPS plots for where they ran yet. And then you get somebody to measure, that course, whereas I'm sure they all days. Did you really record where the star on Finnish word really record where that cone loss? Did you really recalled that stuff from indecent photographs of eight whereas these days with GPS, you know, they ran now I'm not saying, gene classes and accurate measurement? But you know, where people ran so you can then go back and run the route. That was the measure the route that was run. The race. Director says the weather was in perfect in Valencia the past weekend perfect for long distance running. Yeah. That we got new muscles. Well, wreck on the Frankfurt, very Kalki. Like argon someday heard of one of thirty seventh edition of the mine over Frankfurt marathon, and Colin in cool and at times, extremely windy conditions say let's run until six thirty seven off a thrilling Julie broke away from Martin Kosgei Kenya. Finish into I six forty one. Donna Kenyan Alex to finish third on his marathon debut, two seven or nine none of that. We've had this before. But I didn't know who. Faye? The frankfurt. Didn't we when when Kipsang was racing? Remember going on Wilson keeps running or semi Wenjie running Chicago. We were we were within the Macau. Wasn't it? Patrick, Makau ran Frankfurt and broke the world record nearly were record didn't Yvonna to three twenty three or something like a week after somebody had run to my. Well, the interesting thing here Mark Kip to finish sixth. Breaking the world masters record over forty two seven fifty. I'm not that impressed by that. You really get your coat Thome names. Not impressed by that. We increasingly seeing. Athletes perform amazingly in the thirties and forties to seven fifty is no longer on collct world costs stage, no longer considered that foster time is it. It's what five and a half minutes behind the world record. And I would have thought that base fourteen forty one year olds that become it's quicker. So how are you? So to for what how am I four four you go pal? Thanks. I can use from her read. Lana Yuki Noguchi and Hallam Hawkins of both going to be telling the line queue a marathon. That's in fifthly. I think next year December second oh. It's the women's version if that, isn't it a sucker the soccer. Yeah. Okay. Tri December the second showy Kevin walk ins, obviously, good form running a sixty one minutes is that he's going to be doing. Then on December the second. And it features one of the best Japanese fields ever assembled ten Japanese on the start line under to ten and the two ten since twenty sixteen Lama says it's a good chance for a home grown winner. The first since two thousand fourteen and there's an interesting twist to this isn't there because there's this race. Everybody's trying to qualify for in Japan the MDC race, which is Tokyo twenty twenty sort of selection race. Maybe dozens of hopefuls lined up, and there are three ways to make the cut for that race ready. So just to get into the this woefully complicated. Isn't it? Well, just to get into the race. Which is the twenty twenty Olympic trials you have to go under two eight thirty. Right. Okay. Being the top three Japanese men under to eleven not counting those who already qualified or in the next three and under to ten will average under two eleven between one other marathons since August two thousand seventeen so like. It's really get it while they make this stuff so complicated. Honestly, the Americans have got a right of night trial. Anyone can do a relatively easy qualifying time for the trial. So you can have whatever they have forty or fifty people in trials. Why not why not have somebody who can smash fifteen in the trial doesn't impact anybody? And then first we have the line job done. Really simple. It's winner better in the UK. I love to say relatively easy qualifier trial. I go through this. Without at least qualified for both her Olympic Games London as a trial. Yes. Sorts of she was Tori facing Olympic Games. Not athens. Beijing Olympic Games. Yeah. But that was for. That was a little bit complicated wasn't it. 'cause it wasn't top to it. One hundred percent guaranteed was it or was it where? And you had to get should just be top three through job. Don, don. Well, this race is going to be great on December. The second ten Japanese men inside to twenty in the field, including you to. She Tara to six PV just from Tokyo this year. It's a Manzoni rice is by the way, people going. What is it? Visit for is women's elite race. And I think is a soccer isn't as mandatory. And the soccer is intimate g in the field of these two nine one. Also Callum Hawkins in the field with his to attend. And this has a tuning forty five cutoff. Well, go for it. Might take him really well done Ross Bentley. He won Snowdonia math. And is that right? Oh, yeah. So happy to win marathon Erie really just say that this morning even sweeter after having to watch the two thousand seventeen whilst crutches fantastic event. Thanks so much the organizes my beautiful family. And now, they go I really liked the I was actually sent to home and this came on the Tenney on s four c and I watched it a little bit. We're doing watching s four why not what because it was. It was it was. So I thought I'd watch it and Russ at the tiniest of shorts on that. He went for from the go. That's why you're watching like, absolutely. He's like, right. I'm just going an awfully went in the coverage was pretty much just him like running off the front putting into putting in full beans. He won in. To thirty eight twenty one which is tough on that. Snowdonia? Course, there's a fantastic pitcher on Twitter of Russ at the finish line of the marathon. He ran to thirty eight twenty one we'll put a link to the pitcher on this week show notes that six minute mining evasion gain of over three thousand feet fantastic pitcher of him kind of wincing and little bit at the finish. Well, he's he always writes a really great blog to its Russell runner dot com. And you'll be able to read the full race report. There. Yeah. Not sure if he's wincing with pain or pre vice completing his three PU strategy anyway, New York marathon this weekend Canche line Flanagan retain her title. Good pace on world. USA full-time Lincoln is a first America women's defend the title in forty year. Is that right? She's the founder. I mean, she's the first American to win it in forty years tend to defend her title. They say five-time limp. Ian Bernard look at the United States would also make into interstates marathon debut at the New York City map them as the five time world champion will join defending champion Jeffrey Cam wall of Kenya. To lead a men's professional open division that features nine limping and three but math a major taken it seriously. But not I think so you say, yeah. Yeah. It's going to be an interesting race, actually. It's not got the same. You know, superspy top-end. I mean Joffrey Comoros in the field. Of course, he's pretty rapid. But unlike New York because the racing's off the little different, isn't it can be. The night of the calls, and it's not gonna hold load of people at that guy for like Berlin where they're all going at super-quick. So a lot could happen. Be interesting to see how Bernard GATT gets on in in New York. Cut fund. He's also in the race. The wheelchair division muscle. Who is in the way in Van Dyke is in that. So yeah, really looking forward to that to always like seeing Fernie racer world math of major Johnny Johnny Davies, Andy Davies, Johnny Mellon. Chris.

She's the two thousand eighteen virgin money London marathon, sorry Kettani along with two thousand eighteen budget money, London, marathon champion, Vivian cherry. It will be up against Chatelaine Flanagan. The two thousand eighteen Boston marathon champion Dez Linden. Interesting. Very good. Bye. Listen, the podium to it. Do it. Do it.

I watering a sense into sense step styles gates and cheap. This is a different beast to my usual city marathon, I actually stopped to drink the drink stations took a Lou break in a Bush and walk some of the hills and endless steps bitterly cold, but stunningly sunny, gorgeous views. I started off grumbling about the very long. Uphill start call this is a bit of an epic case. But soon got into it about mile four took my three bays before marathon rule and added half bottle of red wine, which I felt was all going to repeat on top some of the hills.

Perfect me only thirty seven seconds of my PB on a much articles. Couldn't be happier team. Saul are definitely Dublin fans. Doc podium. It's hollow. We and I've got the keys who the who called Erica, he'll John has anybody in our job. Now, I've got the AB Jacobs because I entered the race last Sunday in the town of e b which isn't in gbi Great Britain in Spain any which has been a bit rainy not only on the plane. Is it wasn't my first choice rice for the weekend? That was Valencia half marathon where the man's world record was broken. I'd like to think that if the race hadn't been full I would have been right on Abraham Kip tomes tail right on his tail was defined as within forty five minutes off him. It wasn't my second choice race either. As I found myself too late to enter the twenty three kilometer option of the Cavaco trail experience around the mountains of northern Mercier. Shame because I'd never been to Cairo vaca. Delacruz? After ninety minutes. How there's only one that will do Delacruz gets your fast fast. It's completely is comfortable. And it wasn't my third choice race the twenty six kilometers city of alcohol. Solidarity make trail I discovered whilst trying to enter that. It was only for groups of foreigners. And there was only one of me. I haven't gotten when's also I say my my driver account now don't be offended if I don't accept your request. But about bikes Nick JR. In the past Upton half mile exclusion zone round the house thing all you'd have to do really is get them. And I so my life to be tips here how to pitch miss dove. Let's just try. I am not accusing you of being a faith. If you send me a follow request. I'm just not truly cautious are probably get levied one night and then accept everyone. And then regret it. And have another reason not to sleep at nights. Even though the house is fully alarmed, then not feel anxious. That's I wasn't following me. But I've never met your role million that model won't say. You going on as I wanted to pinch your bike gonna tell you, though, if you don't follow them that you are missing out on some great photographs isn't that? Right. The chosen few do at least nineteen Seventy-nine. Now, the IBI based balta Allah fauria, which translates from Catalonia's back to the whole was my fourth choice race on the day. But I was looking forward to getting a twenty seven point five kilometer PB having never on a twenty seven point five comments of rice before whilst I was jumping on my Saturday night. Pre-race bit of chicken, broccoli and pure medicinal beano Blanco. I cast my of my incoming emails, and none of venture into the junk folder and that we offer Viagra fishing tackle with a ph and linked in notifications. Until recently, I thought it was Lincoln. I'm the honest. So I don't know how I got him wasn't message from the race. Organizers sent just hours Earl. Earlier last minute instructions I thought, but the message was Blunk apart from an attached PDF. Sounds like a virus cautious cautious. Don't it. But my race confirmation mentioned the junk folder as well. And it was from the same address who spooky so with great trepidation. I opened it communica do. Official communication for administrative reasons. It has not been possible to obtain the mandatory authorisation for celebration of the thirty thirty. There's another bolt Allah fauria two thousand eighteen is that all that the organization suspend. What rice postponed with less than twenty four hours? Jess comes looking forward to going back to the whole let me tell you. It's been a while. I wondered how many of the thousand entrants hadn't checked their junk mail. I'm what turn up in the plaza in the B? I wanted to find the body news communicate to officielle strapped to a palm tree. So I put a peg on my nose and dived into the murky waters of social media to investigate with the help of Google translate. I wasn't disappointed Maria Jose Martinez Elia tomorrow, more than one will be at the time. In the squad of the magi waiting for his docile and the race. That's what I said. I think I'm not sure this Google translate is entirely accurate Manoel Alvarez human as I think it's amazing that this can happen to with capital a lot about. Yeah. Not using it poop with capital Christina Lopez that strong from down emoji. Yeah. Booth. That's strong poop with capital Maria. Pila Rico kill total for the explanation. They given the Email a PDF attached or Helo. Neither goodbye no beef. She needs to take stock Ivan Molina. It may happen by problems of the organizational others you have to suspend an event, but the management of the communication that the suspension has been regrettable. If you have the male of the runners these occasions ought to make good use of them. Not everyone has Facebook. So it turns out that before sending out emails that went to people's junk folders, they let people know on Facebook a day earlier. But like Mr. windmill says everyone's on ain't aren't is clear. Discrimination against people. Not on Facebook, Lee included, a lamb non to my own name strictly to admin pages. So if Santa Fram request, please don't be offended or been rollers driver. What unfolded is that the race runs through three towns? Ibi Castellina and our Neil high-ranking townhall in O'neil. Maybe Ryan Martineau monk union favorite Ayman on the ill didn't robust dump some type of work. I'm people weren't happy. Santi sealers burn about very very embarrassing after thirty two consecutive years a thousand people bureaucratic problems. Britt rats about shameful here. No one believes anything if you don't want to make don't do it. But let's not play. Personally. I did work for two months. You are incompetent. Sixteen. Exclamation marks. Not that's nearly one for every mile of the event. Donyo beetle Mira lamentable. Lamentable just lamentable last God arson. Insults who have really let people down when that lamenting not to be used with laminating an altogether. More pleasurable pastime owned the sign they put on the palm tree with laminated on the need it with all that rainy in Spain. Not so much somewhere. Dry eye. Venice common Rodriguez. Lopez at first I thought it was a hoax, very lame. Everything is lame a root of lamenting asking for a friend. They haven't announced the new date for the race yet, and you can climb a refund of the fifteen-year-olds entry. If you can't make it. But it's not just the rice, enter the illusion cases. Like this. Is it Jose Dicenta Alba della Heiko Lopez it seems to me that whoever made the decision does not know the damage that was going to cause was the club. Bush reserved them pay. Paid for forty members who is responsible. Ouch. Undress Garcia a year looking forward to this race booking displacement. Then that means accommodation food in the area adjusting were accounts giving up even to go to the other races. Like, the average that means a half marathon of Lancia under suspended for administrative reasons. It is clear that the organization will be affected too. But someone has not done that work. Clearly now affects a lot of people both runners unshod in the area. Yes. What about the shops? What about the shops? Whenever I've done a rice. I always spend a fortune in the shops after shopping. To rub salt in the wounds. Many runners were using the rice as a warm up for the Valencia marathon on December the second and chose to do it instead of a record-breaking half marathon on the same day. Jose Luis Lopez my mother, what nonsense not all planned as a test for the marathon. Now, what Pedroni Alfonso Alcaraz were screwed up where all who fought of the races attest, and we haven't gone to the middle of the Lancia. But well, it's not the end of the world. It's not the end of the world is it if you still be a tow standard applaud him out of a good shout the bone for a few minutes as part of the process, but it's gone. It's lost Anita. If you post that shout in in the old on social media. Even though you might have moved on the sentiment becomes permanent attracts offers like a magnet. Anybody who's been involved with organizing the van will know how much goes into it. Yeah. Sometimes mistakes are made. But let's you're making a running version of the produces you want it to go well without incident. So I'll leave it to one Jose Lopez Catala to sum up in a line which could only have been created by translation tool. More things have been seen. I'm the one who is free of center throw the first stone. So that is no reason to rub the clothes or get in the car of the energetic revulsion all the unanimous condemnation. So what did I do instead of racing? The balta Alafaya. I went on a fourteen mile room. And when I got the top of the thousand foot climb I looked back and saw a fabulous view of the mountains behind me. Hon Ghana thought I'm wearing a marathon talk Asia camera. Profoundly Bank setup of fifteen seconds time. Ron my camera phone climbed on a stone Trig point realize at the timer. Gone off trimmed off it Pressler on again climbed back on the pedestal fell for a second time climbed off the time for thirty seconds and this time succeeded and a cop like catalogue posed for marathon talk kids around the world. But if you don't on Facebook, you won't see it poop with capital. Okay. So I'm here we enter Sinead. Daiva? Welcome Sinead to marathon tool. Howie. Great now before we start the interview. I wanted to apologize ready because I didn't have much about you. And I'm not sure how much listen is knew about it.

He so when I was at home is always into soccer, and I still see in teaching Iraq. So did it so scores or other? Actor Eddie was foreign. This. Less sister lives. Australia's out. She was looking for somebody chain. Join her team in this clip rich event of the house. It was like a a four K lead eighteen event unoriginal extra runner. She just out to be joined in like land. Admin? It's one of the guy's. They're taught my times for what pretty fast. Didn't do any specific training. So he just recommended adults who are eager. Joins a group called the Cosby crew. In Bahrain Annette might hold chin there. I started to eat some training just wants to leak initially. Then I think about a little tension but getting a committee to pick. Liz, I just had a new baby king about Arlen threatens intro. She meeks. Took me almost a year to take on racing. Yup. I started with lead attendant hey road race, which unites one mass. Can I ask time you did? Tidying unit setting. Wow. And that was your first race. It's incredible. Never watch or anything. But. I'd love to see what my six. Yeah. Doc for us. Really interesting to see that Atlanta. I joined look less clubs than started integrations on the canvas. Tracy Rowlett and kinda just started renting Walter there. And then. See I got unwilling to national championships in Australia in. Two thousand. John twelve or thing or is it yet? Yeah. On up to that. I can move out. She. Never expected when national. Yeah. Then I got more serious about proper training. In two thousand thirteen my son DARA, my second son drivers for. Insane. Michael, we should get them out on the go. See how I fare kits. There's always that since. Yep. I did my first on fourteen. Which is actually not though. Unrated enjoyed. We like a gorgeous day is perfect edition on a T thirty four. I'm chronicles. Wow. That qualified me for whereas in Beijing two dozen fifteen. Yes. So that kinda changed everything like owego. I can actually go to rush at me. Rush at me. But so does side of her like, all right? I'm really gonna commit to this now. How many gar everything interests? Huggy injuries option actions miss out on radio because injuries reportedly he got a stating her. I think she. This year, you probably haven't really heard making issues in my best year. Yeah. Like. Yeah. I thought maybe most of the races this year on Brooklyn ship or Smith Lawrence everything together. Kinda he your chin like consistency. Inexperience, of course. Yes. Even though I started like. The treaty unfortunate Nelson's all what relation. It's supposed to do with like is, isn't it? I guess. So it's all to do with running years, isn't it? I guess not not saying Jj. And that's something. I was going to talk to you a bit later on a little bit about that. Because that's something. Obviously, I made the listeners would be interesting, especially the female listeners because you're not getting wrong, you're not spring chicken. But you're you know, if it gives us. If it gives us all hyper I said to you earlier same age as me, and I feel like I'm getting slower so but they got just going back a little bit tonight. I was just interested about considering relatively new to running you live from stood change incredibly since you've got into running and also got to this level. How much how much is that impacted on your life? When your family on your work and having an having the children at how how is that change? Presumably you spend consider many hours a day training a nam. How does that how does that look right now compared to your life before? Latin questions meeting. My life is completely different heartedness. That UNITA family than. Records Nashville coach than than my second. Call. Levinson. Met idiots are. Kids a climate the running on having kids together like they will start at around the same time. So I think the probably that the change person has been the most Sobe Michelson. Yes. Because he. Reading the incident event for not not hugely. So I think it's. At first adversity year. Is it us? While to get into your teen. Tooken was get used to me, you know, warning to train, of course, the evening. Is he gonna reader like initially likely is that crazy? Standard. We find a goal together. These really supportive now can see our celebration. Doing well. In of course. Yeah. Our heroes. Learn you know, the helps is it's not just a hobby. Exactly, it makes a little bit of an added bonus Fuller's hours, pudding and soccer. This will making. Weekend to the race. If. Prize money. It's like it's part of my job done, you know, just gonna in the end. And how do you juggle? How do you juggle your training around? 'cause I did read that you still wet couple of days a week. Is that right? Still untreated. Okay. So you're still working and how do you juggle that? Because you have young family. Husband, etc. How do you juggle your training around? That is is it something that you said that you've always done because you have you started running when you have when you have the children. So has it been ready to say, what do you still struggle? You know, what would you say to the listeners about that? He was struggling at the moment or wondering how you do it. Other from Seattle to routine, I generally get online trading radio early morning before it the guys out of this, which is great. Then. If I if I didn't. Dates? At work or give it eating after dinner. So it's on the ten time like noises set overnight. Type twenty seven. So if any team can kind of throw. Michigan easily if anybody gets sick, or you know, if there's other commitments that me how it can get quite difficult. With work. I think is like I have flexibility there. You know, I don't have to start this age six like kinda. Actually, my hours in the day. But. Started later pleasure. So see you have regular routine is such until something goes wrong than it sort of just fly by the type thing. I think speaking to Martin who's the other marginally he says pretty much the same thing. Now one recording he's trying to put children's medic cetera. But that's just life, isn't it? I'm sure. That. So let's go back to the marathon. So that was a couple of weeks ago wasn't it mountain is that right? So talk us way that performance because a six minute PB is incredible. And the time that you on T twenty-five isn't credible as well. Is that we aiming to run that time was that on the cards or was it was it completely out of the play unsafe. Tell us a little bit about in training. And how you how you got how you got to be running out of time. While that time was definitely on the cards the. But we only Gorny race couldn't decided broke rigor not not onions on shake. The weather was really bad Sunday was just on the week leading in. It was just windy. So we making more he lives on other distress at this isn't gonna happen. Yeah. Get this time if you know, clinically conditions entertain low. Yup. A lead. Interesting going pear shaped with the weather. I think even the align new strain better than ever Mike times. All the other distance has improved along icon just on the day. A neyla crack a major star replace. Usually pretty good pacing myself knowing too hard or bunny back sold upon ours. Just start out the pace that I had planned on. If it gets too hard on the cell might big guys out Gatien meeting each full of. Yeah. So very conscious in very for the first hour always like being super care for the hell, I felt and whatever. Everyone whether pretty bad where you running into headwinds was as bad as you'd expect it. So the first hour respect. Yeah. It was a little bit windy but not like enemy had forecast. Forty. While. Successor. Yeah. But. Chef in how she was follow twenty-five pay got really. Yeah. Yeah. When the getting just warmer leads so I was really starting to worry. I thought. I just thought is gonna happen stay, but I just I kind of stopped looking at my watch is still my face, sir. He was on a dropout attorney maternity pay. Yup. Goalie, Lear engines must've headman appoint a lot. Can you? Stay with me. Yup. Electric. So he stayed at me to eighty seven pay off brilliant. So you on your own you're on your own apart from the paces, you had no other women around day in other women. There's only one place Jack occurrence out pretty lonely. Yup. Yeah. So like he didn't offer that much of any lock. I was just there. And I didn't look at my loss. Anti had no idea really on hasten. Yes. Unformed? He's not just me. But and how did you fit at that point? Yeah. I was traveling from thirty three here. I thought I was. I thought I was still basis. Very said like I just gave it a on a new at that point it all and. Yeah. Like nature sheila's good. So pig. Goal of like, you know, I can do is. I didn't read a timeout. If on recreational. Doing well, regardless a. How can you not like? The night. Your hawks county can retain. Yes, you call us at out. Am I doing well around my no? It's crazy. Isn't it? Yeah. For the like. Ideally. Until I phony tried twenty four billion years wrong. Slice. And what was the previous course record? To twenty six ten think. Oh, amazing. So that was yeah. Amazing. And and so presumably since then you are you've had a bit of recovery. What do you think? What what sort of what's next? I know that you'll thinking looking at take yet it. So what what are you planning next? I mean, have you had the recovery time. And yeah, what are your plans? Yes. It's just over two weeks. I heard. Only four days. I didn't do all. Whites more often than actually the effort Korean. Servino offer of the days like in previous life of uplink. I it's really bad. And I was but this. Very sore. Thursday officer just very yes. So that. Now, I need to yet this year. The main goal is to kill qualifying generate. You know, that they attribute added you point system. Right. So you're rash legend for next year results is ready important because you get more points for different races differences different way. She protects us all one or mental that she. She. So it's another seconds to work that out on peach daily on early us four. Good weather. Yes. Hopefully. So I mean, I'd love to do. I don't. I don't but I love to do some of the majors. Or rene? Landers like it's always easier from year to each time. It's great great. Mark Trump's there. So just sit down. Next year because do. I think's really a. So did point Iraqi. Yeah. So it's important you recover while now. And talking about. Let's get back to what I talked about your age say you all forty one you've been running for nine years, and you've had a huge rise. You've got these times very very quickly. I said your first ten k with that eight minutes, which is incredible. Most of all listeners would dream of a time ni- that what do you think? What do you think? Do you think you can run faster? And secondly. How do you think? How do you think h as affected you do you think is had any negative impacts will put because that could people are going to be listening and saying, well, I'm fortunate with which to and I just feel really slow or I've got slower all what are your secrets because I'd like to know. The age matters. That's what I'm saying. The only the only way that it's better to me. Is that people's perception? Yeah. Hey cut. I forty one very old that since I'm star. The to section that I've been on the way like well. I'm not sure. I'm not on the way up. You should be saying ROY. Feel I feel like yeah. This anytime if unheard about. My tongue. In sixteen does a lot of. All I'm, you know, you're. You're saying you're kind of on the downhill I've no knowledge about ready. I don't feel any negative impacts of age. Show on at faster. So I think like I don't think that we should be limited by the procession that type there that you to once you get over thirty six I mean that was made it that was the case at years ago times of change are just as she started her in. My coaches always said, you always have like every actually had certain opportunity. It doesn't necessarily need the canton. People start starting on her mind hub should senior is between twenty and twenty five or older than ex extenders. So yeah, I certainly don't see like there's any negative because my age not not a runway, and do you feel more in the tank? Definitely. Yeah. Especially because. The conditions were still out over. Yeah. I just know that I can go after like haven't been. Said by Wednesday this year thinking about that race conditions. Berlin pretty much. Yeah. And if I had done this time. All the best option during that another sneaky. It's not that you can trust her. Yeah. That is that is incredible. Will be interesting to see what? Yeah. What happens if you did it balances Sasha incredible, Kohl's safe cost, Scott, Saturday, straight lines? I think that's probably why it's just say fos as well compared to the others. Also, I know the listeners would love to know what else do you do outside of running de do cross training like strength conditioning. Drills and stuff. What does your sort of training? Look like it building enough American training until about. Yeah. I actually don't really. To any cost training. I think it can really benefit. Yeah. If I didn't work of legal I'd fit it in. But I didn't with like I did a little bit of strength training. We've got some weights. So I just do like swap to get anything. You can many twice a week. Okay. But that's pretty much it like my life is running work family yet. That's not only can shit. Yeah. But if I time. Definitely cost and when you sort of have how many sessions are you doing a week? Do you have like little alone? Ron roughly sort of mileage like. Like. This. Get Nettie carry on. Larry's look fly on among the easy unachieved. Chain with. Attention when he didn't speak session lessees on eight. I work Kate. Wednesday is usually energy up Thursday being my trash older Tampa. Yup. Finding negro and Saturday on meet up with anticipated enemy did him trending. Yup. And sunday. Along. So it's not rocket science as usual people always waiting to see a it'll nugget making basically what we hold do, you know, track Tuesday Thursday, maybe hills say or across country in a long on Sunday. So yeah, it's really nice to hear that you're doing the same as all of us. You've just you've got this incredible talent. Do you ever wonder maybe as well? But if you had your sister hadn't got you into running, you know, so you could have never known that you were this good. Yeah. Let's find a strange thing such huge part of my life. Yeah. I often think about I wasn't winning. But I I'm always is always something like. Almost one of these features concentrated he all the time when yeah. Yeah. Assaulting get my teeth. Stuck into wasn't running be something else. So I'm reading that. It is. And just a couple more questions before let you get Sunday's quite it's getting quite late where you are. One question was I want to ask what sort of what do you? What do you eat or drink in your marathons? Tight drinks. History. Take gels on hub like every second strikes letty jail gate verse the up, but I had a lot of. That's a sit well with my stomach can all this. I actually the Morten drink. Okay dot grade, really liked this data something when I she's definitely for Mark next year. I can accept his purely Sunday recounted Australia. Like in your jewelry here. Hopefully. Wrecking get over here in the rest of the time. Does your nutrition just look take everything in moderation or you do you do each? Specifically are you vegetarian as any secrets though? No, I'm just like your Irish might be. So you it'd be vegetarian. I believe I sit in unit for a few years minerals such. Better selection honor to me. Vine like. Aren't if I didn't niece red meat. Let's just need a very balanced diet, mostly. Yeah. There's no nothing. Crazy starting out unconvinced shakes recovery. Yeah. Usher training sessions. Ready? Okay. Berlin and say what you any advice for anyone getting into Maratha, especially like women older women who wanting to get into running on it. Well, they've been running and they want to do that fast marathon any little bit of advice. He would you would give them. I think I think it's all about getting the training. Like having followed, you know, twelve to sixteen creating. Not not. Given your race in trading session. I know that a lot of people started to a lot a lot faster so turnover chain, but it's important not hugged overdue innovating. Yeah. Just to take as a call. But once yet Martha day, it's almost like time to shoot in college. All the training. It. The secrecy here. They didn't have the money to eat it from your training client. You can his such a serious difference goes on it's just most of enjoyable. Exactly, exactly. I think you should feel a little bit. I know as I said you adopted marathon this weekend, and we had an chairs iron. We're tailoring on the other people coming in like ours. And it was just they some of them slipped like say measurability come on. You should be really sad love this. Because it's over you've done all this training crescendo unit on the event. And then it was what's next? I yeah. I think we got really sort of mixed up in the training. Forget about the actual race at the end of the rum just really enjoy it. And enjoy everything you've done to get that. Exactly. Brilliant. That's amazing shape. But I'm not going to let you go until I ask you a question that we always ask every interior on this on the show. Now see now I wish instant. Got you. Okay. I saw that difficult. So we're gonna we're just going to take you back. Now, you're not going to be training now for marathons you're going to be training for one mile on the track. Now, you've got six months to run the fastest mile. We're gonna look off the kids you're not gonna have to work. You're not gonna get injured. You can have perfect training. What even Ron? I know exactly. We're not actually going to do this. But just enough. What do you say should six months time, you could run one mile on the track? Now, we have a ranking on. I have it in front of may. So I'll have to look it up and let you know afterwards, but we've got hundreds and hundreds of people including people like on your Solomon polar. We've got my will mass. I give us your best. What do you think you're gonna run them on? What have you run them all on on the track? So what do you have a time? Now, I not okay. Long distance on like a while. For lunch. I did. Fifteen hundred meter like years ago. Okay. So think about this shape here. And now you're gonna have another six months that you'll purely going to take some them. All what are you gonna run? Gee, can you get me some? What does honors a little bit of this? This is uneven because I'm good at in front of me. I have no idea in the boys are just going to be berating because I haven't got it with me. So I now we'll put it this way. I'm considerably slower than you. And I think I said four fifty eight. Okay. I don't know four hundred eighty four Saudi you come to full thirteen maybe four twenty nine. What's that? You're talking to an ultra now. I. Miles a half an hour. Yeah. Okay. Four twenty five brilliant. We will put you on the rhyme king. And I will let them know that puts you who that puts you amongst. I'll send you a pass message. So that you know. Right. Best of luck in for the rest of the year next year and can't wait to see you take you out on running every foster you are huge inspiration to. All the listeners. But also, I think 'specially all the older women out there. Especially may say thank you for giving us that bit of inspiration and best of luck. Thanks tonight. Tactfully much. Thank you. Right. That's it for another week. Mount. We have to go some time for the weekend that we find it of leisure time. This injury is is going slowly. But I'm just I'm just knowing my place to.

We're going trick or treating tomorrow. Not for me. I want to understand. But she's is the kids. They must be asking. You can go trick or treating with them. What are you saying? Why am I getting to do is is make some like Halloween cakes or something like that some nice little nice little pumpkin weather called little cakes with faces? And so I feel like. So they feel that if done something, and then they know computers due on instead of instead of right trick or treating them. They just treat. They give them a nice cake. That's a nice thing to do isn't it what? After trick them. We watch off that we got have really co- time with h through loads fun things. Everybody else is doing that.

Plus, you must be nice. Your problem to him swept up in popular culture. Unable to make your own decisions. The other thing the other thing that gets me is how plastic thing because everyone hops on now over reducing single use plastic there, then they go out and buy a load of rubbish plastic they're going to use for one night for Halloween, plastic mosque, plastic this plastic the other seven about just don't do it. And then you wherever those plastic debacles. What about what Christmas is celebrated as well? Let's not we have this conversation after conversation at Christmas. I do celebrate Halloween.
