Ian Sharman took off from coaching this season of Becoming Ultra because of a whirlwind summer but we had a chance to catch up with him after he won his 3rd Leadville 100. He gives tons of advice that is applicable for every level of runner.  He shares what he made racing the last two years, you may be surprised. And, we tease a bit regarding season 4 of Becoming Ultra.  Enjoy the show!

This one gets pretty uncomfortable, literally. We go a bit longer in the episode because there was so much to talk about regarding chafing, bears, and training.  Becoming Ultra is here to relate to the world of first time ultra runners.  Pop those head phones in, go for a run and enjoy the show!

Moriah hails from Northeast Pennsylvania and started running about 5 years ago. It wasn't until she recently found trail running that she feels she truly found her passion.  There will be blood, and bones showing, mud, and lots more to learn from her first experiences as an ultra runner.  We just hope you pick something up from her!

Today's show was originally released on the Athlete On Fire show but sometimes the story just needs to be told.  We all know someone who has overcome big things in their own life or we need to be that person that does.  This is one of those stories.  Nothing more magical than someone who decides to truly change for the better. This person just happens to run ultras now!
