Lora Vaccaro recently coached Bridget Nixdorf to a Chicago Marathon finish as part of the Saucony 26 Strong program. The pair is one of 13 teams in the project, which pairs 13 coaches and running experts with 13 cadets training for their first marathon.
Before their big day in October, Vaccaro and Nixdorf traveled to San Diego for a Competitor photo shoot. We caught up with the pair during their trip out west about all things running.
