How to Find Time to Train When You Have a Busy Schedule // Interview With 2020 Boston Marathon Qualifier Joy Burke
It took 10 marathons before today's guest, Joy Burke, hit her first BQ on marathon 11. Talk about resilience!
Joy lives in Rochester, New York, with her husband and three children, ages 8, 7, and 4. Both she and her husband are neurologists, and she works at the University of Rochester hospital specializing in Neuro-Oncology where she cares for patients with brain and spinal tumors as well as neurological complications of chemotherapy and radiation. She also keeps a general neurology clinic treating conditions like migraines, seizures, Parkinson’s, and neuropathy.
She could have every reason to use this taxing work schedule as an excuse not to train, but she’s learned to fit it all in, and she has quite the story of overcoming to share. I hope you enjoy this week’s interview with Joy!
