Isabel and Stacey are under way with their training from coach Hillary Allen!  Intervals and pyramid sets to make it more interesting early on is the goal.  Stacey talks about the challenge of switiching from lots of treadmill miles to outside miles and Isabel shares her goal of being able to run up a local route without stopping!  Good stuff!

Early training for the runners of Season 13 is not disappointing.  Chelsea gets the work done and has some great, if not funny, feedback about her core work.  Delorean nails the runs but may have cut a bit more than a carrot on the cutting board.  Hopefully he is ok.  We follow the journey of runners doing big things!

Coach Amanda Basham gets to meet her runners for Season 13 for the first time on today's call.  Kristi from Texas and Kelsey from Oregon.  They both balance so many things and found running in different ways so watching them train for their first 50k and 50 Miler is going to be a blast!  Enjoy the show.

Coach Annie Hughes finally gets to meet her runners for this Season 13 of the Becoming Ultra Project.  Jasmine and Darin are respectively the oldest and youngest of the season and they both were great to get to know on this first call.  From Darin's sobriety and Jasmine dealing with loss, they are both going to bring so much to the listeners and other runners this season. We hope you enjoy the show!
