Jeffrey James Binney is a Salt Lake City based ultra-runner, motivational speaker, actor, singer, and comedian.  Jeffrey grew up on a farm in Laredo, MO before moving to Brooklyn, NY & later Los Angeles after receiving his B.F.A. in Musical Theatre Performance from Missouri State University.  Jeffrey has been seen on Late Night with David Letterman, in the 1st National Tour and Chicago Company of the Broadway musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and at comedy clubs and festivals across the country.  Jeffrey’s award-winning film, Once Is Enough, chronicles his journey after losing his mom to obesity-caused heart disease.

We all love a good first ultra-story and Jeffrey has a fantastic one.  If you thought his documentary, Once Is Enough, told the entire story just wait because there is more.  Jeffrey will keep you entertained as we discuss his journey to Becoming Ultra.  We could not think of a better guest for our first My First Ultra podcast.  We hope you enjoy this one as much as we did.
