Episode 31 – Ian La Mere


“So, were you successful because you were cocky, or naive?”
Welcome to D3 Glory Days, the podcast telling tales of D3 running greatness. Recently named a top 500 D3 podcast by Forbes Magazine. Thanks for joining us for our Citius Mag Podcast Network debut.

This week we spoke to Wisconsin Platteville alum, and current Hansons-Brooks professional, Ian La Mere. In this episode, we document Ian’s evolution from running ten miles a week in high school, to eventual D3 national champion and record holder. We uncover the benefits running had on his life and in the classroom as it allowed to bring focus to his school work. Ian is a true grinder in every aspect of his life and his love for the sport is propelling him towards his goals of making an Olympic team and winning a Major Marathon. When the dust settled, Ian came away from D3 as a 6x National Champion, 6x All American and is one of two D3 Athletes to have broken 14 minutes in the 5k and 29 minutes in the 10k Outdoors.
