Athlete On Fire

And after his fourth win of the Leadville 100, we thought taking a look back to his thoughts on last years win would be inspiring.  He said this year was the hardest to date with vomiting, diarrhea, and just a crazy day on the trails.


Ian Sharman took off from coaching this season of Becoming Ultra because of a whirlwind summer but we had a chance to catch up with him after he won his 3rd Leadville 100. He gives tons of advice that is applicable for every level of runner.  He shares what he made racing the last two years, you may be surprised. And, we tease a bit regarding season 4 of Becoming Ultra.  Enjoy the show!

We have the chance to speak with an organizer of the first ever Kokoda Trail race. A three day stage event that covers the Kokoda Track, a World War 2 historical trail that the Australians used to hold off the Japanese.  The history and the athletes that took on the challenge made this a pretty unique event!

We all justify why we can't or won't do something we really want.  Like making more money, winning losing weight, getting faster.  It doesn't matter.  When we tell the world we want something but tell ourselves something else, it's time for a little tough love.  We hope this helps you out of some of your default excuses!
