In anticipation of our exciting interview with Meb next week, we are re-releasing our interview with his brother and manager, Hawi. So, time to refresh on this dynamic family duo!
In Episode 44, Hawi Keflezighi, owner of HAWI Sports Management - joins the show!
If Hawi’s last name sounds familiar, that’s because his brother is Meb Keflezighi (you know, Olympic silver medalist, New York City Marathon winner, Boston Marathon winner, etc. NBD). Meb was Hawi’s first client, but Hawi’s sports management agency now boasts an impressive roster with names like Alexi Pappas, Leo Manzano, Brenda Martinez, Zach Miller, and more.
Tim, Julia, and Hawi discuss a ton about where the Keflezighis came from (their incredible story alone is worth a listen), what it’s like to be a pro runner (salaries, sponsors, contracts), and the pressures of doping.
This is one of our favorite episodes so far, and we really hope you enjoy!
For those digging the sweet ukulele intro music, that comes to us from the talented musician and running coach, Matt Flaherty. Check out his site for more audio goodness!
