She started at Google Search and moved onto a number of other products, and then became a Sloan fellow at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford, returned after her fellowship and worked on apps and business and Gmail, and then came to join Google Fiber about three years ago with me. And when she's not a full time Googler, she is a full time mom and a world class runner and endurance athlete. Let me share with you some examples of her long list of accomplishments in running. Her personal record running a marathon is two hours, 41 minutes, and 57 seconds. Think about that. 26.2 miles in under two hours and 42 minutes. That was her personal record set in December at the California International Marathon, and it was a key race getting her to this day. And so we'll talk more about that. She also ran a 1,500 meter, a mile, in under four minutes and 35 seconds in the US Track and Field Pacific Association Championships a few years ago. She's in Los Angeles today for the US Women's Olympic Track Team Marathon Trials, on the road to Rio in 2016. This is a really big race this Saturday for Shal, and we're really lucky to have her here. Please join me in welcoming Shal to Google Venice Beach. And also her husband Ramsey and daughter Elise and mom Marianne are in the audience with us. So welcome also to Google Venice Beach. Welcome. It's been fun as a Google Fiber teammate of yours to follow your path here. But I'm really excited to have you here and to share with the Google audience and the YouTube audience a little bit more about you and your racing career. So can you tell us a little bit about-- first of all, you're on the Google Fiber project. Tell us a little bit about what Google Fiber is. SHALUINN FULLOVE: Google Fiber is high speed internet and TV for your home or small business. And it's a gig, which is a really big deal, right? So it's a lot faster than most of us have unfortunately at our homes. And I've been on the team for about three years, like you mentioned earlier. JEREMY STERN: So over 13 years at Google. What inspired you to move from other projects to come join the Google Fiber team? What was interesting about the opportunity? SHALUINN FULLOVE: I've worked on a lot of projects and products since I've been here. I think it's maybe more than 12 products, A lot of that is because at the time, at Google, we were launching a lot of new products in early 2000. So lucky to just be able to move on to new products that they were launching, After almost 10 years at Google, if I was going to continue to be here, I wanted to be working on something that was very audacious, and a little bit scary. And launching a new fiber network seemed to kind of fit that description, right? So it's not an easy problem to solve. And we're chipping away at it. So I'm really excited. I've learned a ton about the TV business and internet and fiber. So it's really kept me excited to keep learning all this time. JEREMY STERN: What do you do on the Fiber team? SHALUINN FULLOVE: I sit on the business development team. And I work in the strategy and operations. I work closely with yourself and Irv and the content licensing team to better understand what we've signed up for on the deal side, and help product and engineering understand how to built a roadmap around those obligations. JEREMY STERN: So you're a full time Googler, a full time mom. How do you find time to be a world-- how in the world do you find time to become a world class marathoner? SHALUINN FULLOVE: Well it's not certainly not just me. My husband, who's here, who's also a Googler, who's been at Google as long as I have, maybe longer, we're definitely a team effort. There's a ton of people that help us get everything done every day. The schedule is every day a game of Jenga about who's going to work out when, who's going to take Elise to school, what's dinner going to be like. We have help at home too, which is great. But we work together. And it's a lot of working out on the bookends of the day. But I do get a chance to work out at work a lot. There's a great group of mostly guys, the Mountain View Lunch Run Group. They're not watching right now, probably because they're on a run. So sometimes I'm able to get into running during the workday. JEREMY STERN: So the race on Saturday, February 13th, to qualify for the US Olympic team, it's Saturday in Los Angeles. Tell us a little bit about the Olympic qualifying process. SHALUINN FULLOVE: Sure. So there's basically two standards that get set. The Olympic standard is set by the International Olympic Committee, and then individual countries have their own standard. So initially, the Olympic standard was 2:43, and for the US, we usually have a time that's equal to the Olympic standard. So if you've met the US standard, then you've automatically met the Olympic standard, so you already have that, at least for the marathon. It's a little bit different in track. So initially the standard was 2:43, and I just missed the standard. I ran 2:43:33 in 2013, so just by like a little over a second in the mile I missed the standard, which was a little bit heartbreaking. But I ran a good race, and I was happy about that. And so then in 2015, I went and ran 2:41 and hit the 2:43 standard. And then two days later, my family and I were in Hawaii, and the Olympic committee announced that they'd changed the standard to two minutes slower, so they changed it to 2:45, which is great news for a lot of women, because that meant they just qualified for Olympic trials. Sorry. The Olympic committee changed it to 2:45, and then the US committee a couple days later agreed to change it again to 2:45 to meet the Olympic standard. So it's a little bit unusual this year. Initially, it was 2:43. Now it's 2:45. JEREMY STERN: Does that mean there'll be more women racing on Saturday? SHALUINN FULLOVE: So I think something like eight new qualifiers were allowed to come into the race after they moved the standard back about two minutes, which is great news all in all. And then on Saturday, the way it works is there's a little less than 200 people in the men's and women's race, and the top three finishers will be the US Olympic team that goes to Rio, and the fourth place finisher will be the alternate. So it's a very democratic process. Yeah. JEREMY STERN: Where is the race taking place on Saturday? SHALUINN FULLOVE: It is down by LA Live. It's roughly a five-loop course. There's a two-mile loop to begin with, and then we do four by six miles. So it's a very spectator-friendly course. JEREMY STERN: So it's different. The big LA Marathon is Sunday, and that's from Dodger Stadium to the sea. SHALUINN FULLOVE: Right. JEREMY STERN: Not a straight line, but A to B. This is a completely different course than that. SHALUINN FULLOVE: Yep. It's definitely set up for spectators to see a lot of us, and it's not even like a real loop.
