An ex-marine, single mom, and firefighter is the same person and she is training to become an ultra runner with the help of world class ultra runner Ian Sharman. Ian is finally getting to meet Jules in person(kind of) on the Google Hangout for this podcast. They talk about scheduling runs with a busy life, getting used to hills, when to power hike, and so much more that every new ultra runner goes through. It’s a fun first look at student and coach!  We both give her tips on what to share with all of you so if you have anything in particular you would like to hear from Jules, let us know!

The second call was more about the nuts and bolts of the project.  First, what are the philosophies of the coaches for the Becoming Ultra project?  We go over base work, speed work, strength, cross training, recovery, and nutrition.  They both have their own style and it is pretty cool to hear how they will be applying to their athlete.  We talk about the logistics of the project which is still and probably will always be a work in progress.  How often will we do Google Hangouts On Air? Podcasts? How much will the coaches share with the public? When will Matt be shooting the video of the runners?  All fun stuff and all the details that need to be addressed.  Lastly, we introduce the runners in two short video’s within the Google Hangout which y ou can find at Becoming Ultra.com.  Their reactions were great and we think they will make for great follows!

We talk about the applications we recieved to be the subjects of the Becoming Ultra Project.  The BU Project is a documentary style project following two runners being coached by two of the best inthe sport.  Let us know what you think about the entries.  Do you have a favorite?  Are road runners a good fit?  Is the ex-marine too hard core for this project? We have fun with the process and gear up for the runners we will be choosing soon.
