Video interview: Ben Blankenship on fire in Birmingham

Ben Blankenship has been on fire this indoor season with a series of top performances culminating in a personal best for fourth in 3:35.28 at the Sainsbury’s Indoor Grand Prix.

We caught up with him immediately after his race to talk about the indoor season and what lays ahead. The American had a very successful training camp with Ciarán Ó Lionáird in Flagstaff, Arizona in January. He ran the first sub 4 indoor mile on Irish soil at the Athlone International last week which you can also watch below.

Con Houlihan once told me that tomorrow is now. In taking on this venture I’ve started to try and put his words into action.

I worked for Con from 2007 till his passing in 2012 taking down his copy and a whole lot more. I have a Con Houlihan section which will go in to more depth on that.

I’m a long-time contributor to the Irish Runner magazine and am also working for the Irish Examiner.
