Becoming Ultra is back at it with Season 5.  With the beautiful Zion as the back drop in April 2018 as the race destination, Zach Bitter, Liza Howard, and the host, Scott Jones will have to decide who to choose for the Becoming Ultra project's Season 5 runners.

Enjoy the show!

Traveling across the country is much more physically demanding than you think.  It's why we give our body a few days to recover before running far. Also on the show, some of the positive mental tricks to get through this first 100k!

Enjoy the show.

In 6 days, your host will be running his first 100k, there will be no start line, bibs, or fanfare.  Just a few friends, family, and a couple running buddies trying to remember his dad on his first birthday since his passing.  On the show today, the route and the meaning behind it.  Where is the toughest section?  What is the strategy for the first 12 miles?  Enjoy the show!

Hey it's the host, coach, and runner, Scott.  My dad died last year.  He was 62.  I am running a 100k on his birthday in his home state of West Virginia to remember in a week.  I'd love to share the journey with you until Season 5 starts, the day after his birthday.

On this show, my training for the last 6 months.

Thanks for listening!

On the first day of the first ever live event from the efforts of the Becoming Ultra Project, a trail camp in Colorado, we are humbly launching another season of Becoming Ultra.  A new coach, a new coaching program built on storytelling and accountability, and what we expect from the future runners training for this feat. 

If you aren't applying, could you share with someone you think should!  All the details for applying can be found at www.becomingultra.com/season5

 

Thanks for listening.
