This is part 1 of 7 in a series featured on Becoming Ultra.

Hey it's the host, coach, and runner, Scott.  My dad died last year.  He was 62.  I am running a 100k on his birthday in his home state of West Virginia to remember in a week.  I'd love to share the journey with you until Season 5 starts, the day after his birthday.

On this show, my training for the last 6 months.

Thanks for listening!

Bone chilling, amazing and awe-inspiring would be a few ways to describe our next guests body of work.  A California based photographer go to the ends of the earth to capture amazing athletes, mostly surfers, engaging the wild around them. The juxtaposing of athlete and artic swell will leave you speechless.  In this episode we learn how he got to where he is today.  A self taught photographer who has built his own career out of talent and passion will share some great stories of his journey.  And he is an athlete too. You can't imagine the conditions he has to overcome to get these shots and we dive into the mental toughness it takes to withstand bitter cold and crazy weather.  We hope this show takes you to places you never imagined, before you knew they were possible.  Enjoy our newest Athlete On Fire show!
