Steve has been running since he was in high school.  After burning out and taking a 20-year hiatus he picked it back up when his children (now 30 & 26) got involved in middle school cross country which led him to HS cross country coaching for 5 years.  Some injuries moved Steve off the pavement and towards the trails.   Currently Steve is a real estate broker / auctioneer and the VP of the Indiana Trail Runners Association but has always made time to hit the trails and race.  With a few hundred races under his belt Steve has some big accomplishments in his running career; 23 marathons with a Boston qualifier; 15 ultra marathons; 2012 Trail Runner Magazine’s Trophy series winner just to name a few.  Last year during a marathon trail race Steve fell and detached his right Achilles, had surgery in November and has been rehabbing since.    

Have you ever asked yourself what would I do if I could no longer run?  That is what our guest, Steve Baber was faced with.  Hear Steve talk about the highs and lows of not being able to run and rehabbing an injury for over a year.  Steve talks about how embracing the trail running community gave him hope as he worked towards recovery.  Steve also talks about what it is like to age in the sport of ultra-running.  Steve has some good advice to share.  We loved how candid and open he was.  We think this talk will resonate with so many people.
