Episode 32 – Shauneen Garrahan Werlinger


“I knew I was in a rut but at the same time I knew it wasn’t a bottomless pit I got sucked in to. I knew I still had it in me to do better and to get back to the type of performances I had my first two years”

Joining us this week on D3 Glory Days, a CITIUS Mag Podcast Network show, is Shauneen Garrahan Werlinger. Shauneen wasn’t recruited to Amherst College, she had no idea how the process worked. But recognizing the strength of the program, committed to school thinking she’d figure it out along the way. She did. Shauneen finished 10th overall at her first National Championship cross country meet. For reasons we explore in our conversation, she would never improve that placing on the grass. Track was a different story. A natural hurdler, she took quickly to the steeple, winning her first national championship her sophomore year.

Battling injuries her junior year, Shauneen had high caliber performances, but nothing that quite measured up to the standard she had set for herself early. After a drought those races came all at once. Over the course of one legendary weekend, Shauneen swept the distance events, and claimed national championships in the steeplechase, the 5,000 meters, and the 10,000 meters.
