Join us as we talk about the journey, both on the trail and off.  What kept Jules moving when it got really tough out there on the trail?  Ian explains that in every race, quitting crosses your mind.  What does he teach us about how to deal with those thoughts?  What is next for the Becoming Ultra Project and what can we do to get better?  All this and more on the final call of the first season of Becoming Ultra.
