Today we talk to badass Michelle Ford, and once again, get comfortable with some uncomfortable topics. We chat about PERIODization in training, humanism, humour, and longevity in the ultra world.  

Michelle Ford is a co-founder of Fraser Street Run Club and a personal trainer who believes in the power of one’s strength, inside and out. Her first marathon was in in 2013 and has since finished three other marathons, four 50k and a handful of local trail races . When she is not working with clients or organizing communities runs with Fraser Street Run Club, she’s busy training for her next 100m, carrying 60lbs sand bags up mountains prepping for an upcoming obstacle race, or running wild in the forests of the north shore with her two dogs and husband, Jesse.

They say podcast recording is like running an ultra. They don't say that. But we love a good running analogy. After months of technological difficulties, we may have finally reached the starting line. The last few months have taught us to persevere through frustration and false finish lines. As Scott Jones said, "I feel like we all just ran a 100 miler together through a snow storm." Ultra thank yous to Scott and Athlete on Fire.
Today we talk about how even though running can be our medicine, it does not always help with stress. If it feels stressful, chances are it is taxing your mind or body - or both. Connecting the body and mind (as non yogis). Also, why it is important in life to find your unicorns. Ultra Dirt is the newest edition to the Athlete On Fire network.
