Eli always comes to the show with great questions.  On this episode, her love for intervals has come to the end it seems. How does Zach frame this mindset for her to continue strong in her training?  She also has some logistical questions about drop bags for Zion!  Enjoy the show.

Susan just got back from a skiing trip in Colorado and while she was very active, she didn't get in her regular miles so we focus on what the last month of training will look like and where she will be getting those climbing legs ready for Zion!  Thanks for listening.

Red has one of the most challenging schedules to coach around, which is actually pretty fun to figure out.  We talk about that schedule issue, gaining more elevation, goals for a big Texas relay race, and how to add different food options on her runs.  It was a good call and she is in a good place mentally. Enjoy the show and we hope you learn something!

James has been putting his training to the test and the results have been amazing recently.  A couple 50+ mile weeks, PR's, and even some doubt from a fellow local runner all make the call today. Enjoy!

Heath has been sharing his running story and training for the last few months.  Today, we dive in to him as a person.  His life, career, family, and more.  It's a pretty amazing story really.  We hope you enjoy.

With so many of our Becoming Ultra community making the trip to Zion, we thought it would be great to bring on the event director. Lots to take in on this newest show! Enjoy.

Eli has been dealing with some mood swings and issues that aren't easily explained.  We dive in to many of the possible causes and do a brainstorm to try to troubleshoot any potential root causes.  It is something we really haven't talked about but definitely a topic we think will help many of you all. Enjoy the show.

Jesse Itzler is a serial entrepreneur, ultra runner, and general seeker of adventure.  On the show we talk about adventurous parenting, addiction to newness, and mental toughness.  His background is amazing and diverse and to spare the clickbait(y) descriptions about what this guy has accomplished, I'd recommend you just listen to the show to find out who he really is first, then go google the crap out of him!  Thanks for listening.

Red has been coming along with her training.  Today we talk about adding a lot more vertical to the training plan.  She has a few questions about her training that we dive into including, "Should I use a tire pull for resistance training?"  It was a fun show and we hope you enjoy!
