Ginger Gutting is a runner from Fredericksburg, VA.  A co-worker got her interested enough to train for and run her first ultra, the JFK50.  It was a heck of a day.  Listen to how it went, how she trained and who she got to agree to run it with her again this year!

It's true.  We are all gonna die.  What we do before that is our own fault. So, a little pep talk from the host with some examples you may be able to relate to.  Also, new rules for some of the shows we share on the feed.  And, a shout out to a very important person from Athlete On Fire!
