Ian and Janet are talking about what it takes mentally to not let the increasing miles overwhelm you as a new runner training for an ultra.

  • We also talk about the best practices in managing relationships and the holidays with so many miles on the training regimen.
  • Lastly, what would a world that was made to run every day look like? WE have fun with this topic. Enjoy today’s episode of Becoming Ultra.

Being an athlete doesn't mean you have to pigeonhole yourself for one endeavor for your whole life. What do you do when the passion runs out? When the body needs a physical change?  What do elites do?  Why and how can you evolve to have a life of a never ending athlete?  We'll tackle that question today.  Kalli our Canadian Correspondent brings us upto date with some national competition in her home country.  It's a fun start to the week here at Athlete On Fire.
