Athlete On Fire

The tragedy in Paris and events like this make us all wonder why. They also bring out the best in people.  We pose a question about the world at times like this as well as share the three types of people we find ourselves thinking and praying for most often. Have you been on a long flight or sitting for long bouts lately? We give a simple 3 exercise set to help your hips through.  Thanks for listening to the Athlete On Fire show!

It worked out that we could spend Veteran’s Day with our Team RWB runner and her coach.  We learned what the day means to them and got to learn more about Team RWB as an organization. We also debated weight issues for ultra runners and a few different ways to look at food that you may not have tried as a runner yourself.  Enjoy this episode of Becoming Ultra, an Athlete On Fire production.

We are happy to announce a new contributor to the Athlete On Fire show.  She started as a listener and is now contributing to the site and the podcast fun and interesting facts as well as sound training advice.  We talk about a sailing adventure and the new series that covers it on the show.  A world record that includes running and this skill you may or may not have.  Also, a weekend workout challenge with a 35 minute cut off. At least, that is how long it took Scott to finish. Enjoy today's Athlete On Fire show!

There is an adventure at every stop of of this sailing trip.  Some on land and some on sea.  This episode covers both.  There is trouble off the coast of Venezuela in the form of a big ship with suspicious activity and a run on Panama led to a spooky, undisclosed location.  So far, everything isn't as it seems and we haven't even gotten to the Pacific yet, until the end of this show. Enjoy this episode of Voyage Into Hell.
