Will has had some great breakthroughs recently in training for his first ultra ever, the Smith Rock 50k in Oregon this May! A new approach to daily nutrition has him feeling strong and his runs are getting longer and stronger! Ellie shares what the next stage of training holds and Will complains about the rain, just a little! Enjoy!
Host Scott and Luis Escobar had a chance to sit down in Squaw Valley and talk all things running. Upcoming adventures in Bhutan. Why he is working with the Spartan Trail series and all about the Born To Run Ultras he founded and how crazy things can get at the annual running festival! Enjoy.
Shanna has worked in social work for her whole career and while the counseling and efforts she puts into her job are meaningful, they can be quite stressful. In the last year she has been taking steps to use the same skills with runners. This is an introduction to her and why and how she wants to help! Enjoy the show.
James Wright set off for a new type of ultra adventure when he signed up for the Frozen Otter 100k held in Wisconsin in the middle of January. We talk about the unique challenges he faced and how he would do things different next time! Enjoy the call.
Emily thought she was the only one. The coaches thought it was everyone? So, who actually misses runs and how do we move on from these in the big picture of a training program? We answer that and more on the show today! Enjoy
Will is ready to see some results and Ellie reassures him they are coming. Scott can't talk. Enjoy the show following runners training for their first 50k!
Scotty Mills is a legend in the world of ultra running. He took the time to deliver a speech about what the sport has done for him over the span of his life as a runner and race director. If you believe in the power of community, you'll love this talk. Thanks for listening!
Emily had a road trip as an adult child and shared that Becoming Ultra could possibly be a cult on first impression from some family members! We talk about her running over the last couple weeks. We talk early year goals for the masses and we throw out some more unique words to try and stump Ian and his English or British background! It's a fun one!
The new year is here and we catch up with Will and his coach Ellie. A double digit run coming up as well as a 6 hour running event. We also dive into trail etiquette stories. Happy New Year and enjoy!
