We have a special guest for this weeks episode, head coach of the Brooks Beasts Danny Mackey. Danny has numerous accolades, including coaching 800m runners Cas Loxsom and Nick Simmonds to spots on last years World Championship teams. In this episode, Danny traces his story in how he got into coaching and the lessons learned along the way. You’ll learn how Danny’s perspective on what is and isn’t important has shifted over the years.  We’ll dive into the difference between developing athletes and putting the cherry on top, and then how to create a solution-orientated approach to coaching.

In this wide ranging, hour long podcast, Danny provides some gems on coaching, whether it’s for track or for a team sport.
