Athlete On Fire

Today we record in the middle of nowhere, West Virginia.  Nothing is as good or as bad as it seems.  We give a few personal examples.  Scott shares 5 cases for podcasting if you were on the fence. You might not expect the main benefit but it is just that.  A stellar lasagna recipe we found that happens to be gluten free and an amazing adventure just completed in the Amazon. Thanks for listening to the Athlete On Fire Show.

We get to know our second subject for Season 2 of the Becoming Ultra Project.  In a total geographical contrast from our other subject, she still has challenges of her own.  A much lower base and a tricky knee issue to start. On this episode we get to know her as a person, get some first impressions from Ian, and start to figure out how he will be addressing the issues.  If you are a runner that wondered what it takes to be an ultra runner, this is the show for you as we follow two runners for 6 months until they attempt a 50 miler!

Paul has been making his way in adventure and endurance for some time now so it's not surprising that he completed these events in such a short period of time.  The fact that he was competitive is where it gets interesting.  As a 40+ year old athlete he talks about the actual events and what he did to prepare.  There are some great stories of team, wildlife, nad nutrition to inspire and inform on this episode of the Athlete On Fire show!

We didn’t have this issue the first season. We had to pick 2 out of about 10 applications that first go ’round. This season was a different story though.  Over 50 applications, most really well thought out and worthy had to be sorted through. Ian Sharman and Liza Howard have a much easier time navigating 100 miles of singletrack than picking only TWO runners.  We hope anyone listening knows how tough this truly was, and how much we appreciate each and every listener and runner who applied!
