Erin and her coach Lindsay sit down with Scott to talk about the first few weeks of training for her first 50k at the Grindstone 50k.  Humid days, ticks, and other random things that come up in the heat of summer made the conversation. We hope you enjoy!

We have the pleasure of introducing Erin to the world.  She is an educator that grew up on a family farm not too far from Washington D.C.  Today, we just get to know her as we will be talking lots of running in the coming months.  We hope you enjoy!

Apr 10, 2024

Amanda is cruising through some long efforts on the trails and getting more comfortable in her new running surroundings.  Addie brings some wisdom to call about race as a celebration of the training and accessing your best at any moment.  It's been a great ramp up to Amanda's first ultra.  Hope you enjoy!  Season 15 is taking applications now!

We have found an amazing race partner for the next season of Becoming Ultra.  We are headed back east for epic trails and memories in the mountains of Virginia.  On the show today we have the founder and RD of the Grindstone Trail Running Festival by UTMB, Clark Zealand.  As a collegiate runner, Clark started his ultra running journey in the late 90's.  It led to him eventually starting the Grindstone 100 miler.  He talks about his own running journey, the Grindstone course and history, and the area as we pain a picture of the partner race for Season 15.   If you or someone you know wants to train for and run your first 50k, applications are live now.
