Athlete On Fire (general)

Tina decided that this just wasn't for her and lucky for us, she figured it out after the first episode of the show.  Luckily, one of our other finalists was still very interested in Becoming Ultra, so, we introduce her on today's show. Becoming Ultra follows the journey to becoming an ultra runner from day one of training!

To be able to listen to someone at the top of their respective sport give advice as to what is helping them succeed and to be able to apply it to anyone at any level is what the Athlete On Fire show is all about.  We have done this very well on today's show.  Whether it's a mental or physical concept, every athlete will be able to take away something interesting to apply to themselves.

How does he approach running the Grand Canyon?  Why did he finish the race after taking a wrong turn at mile 92?  What drives him? What is his race strategy coming from high altitude?  What mental tricks does he use when competing?

 

Enjoy the show!

On this episode our host talks about why running in an organized event isn't always the best option.  Sometimes you just need to run for your self and leave the extrinsic motivators out of the equation.  Also, the team people from all over the country (yes we can say that now) are signing up for and why Scott is running 62 miles on his dad's birthdays.  His why's may be similar to yours.

Thoughts on following that gut feeling in life, as an athlete, and as an entrepreneur. A big thanks to the contributors of the AOF network and what to expect in 2017 from Athlete On Fire.  Also, the last words I said at the inspiration for Athlete On Fire's memorial service, my dad.
