Ryan Steiner is an unlikely ultra runner. Ryan spent most of his life extremely overweight topping off at over 700lbs, currently he has lost over 400lbs of that. Ryan is autistic and has a complicated relationship with food. In the last few years, he has overcome this complicated relationship with the help of his 5-year-old daughter, Kala and their mutual love of running for hours. Ryan and Kala just finished their first ultra 50k together at the Hennepin Hundred, on October 3. Ryan pushed Kala the entire way in a stroller that he calls the chariot. This next year, Ryan promises, will be even more epic for the duo! As a stay-at-home dad Ryan and Kala spend all their time together. These two are best friends with a symbiotic relationship that will fill your heart. 

Have you ever met someone that changes the way you look at something?  We are excited to share Ryan’s story with you.  Ryan talks about being autistic and immersing himself in running.  He shares with us the long journey of weight loss and how moving his body and running have changed his life.  Once you hear his unique perspective on DNF’s I promise you will think differently about them.  Ryan lights up when he talks about his daughter Kala and the special bond they share.  Ryan is an incredibly kind and positive person.  This was a very special podcast for us.  I know you will think so too!
