Athlete On Fire

The CoolDown is a new show format for Athlete On Fire!  Days, weeks, and months have passed since we have talked with and learned the amazing stories of some of our athletes and we wanted to bring them back to just sit back and talk about what's going on in their lives and what's new since the last time we talked.  Not formatted at ALL, The Cool Down is supposed to be just like getting off a long trail or tough workout and talking it up with whoever you are with.  We just happen to be with amazing athlete on fire! Jason is an avid writer and talks about his process.  He even gives 3 tips for beginners wanting to start writing their first book.  We also talk about life in an RV with a family, MMA v. Ultra running, and how he just got knocked out for the first time ever!  Enjoy.
