Ryan Lang is only just turned 22 years old and already his ultra marathon bio reads like that of a very accomplished ultra running 40 plus year old.  With the Moab 240mile race and the Tahoe 200 miler and soon to add the Big Foot 200 miler to the list along with a bunch of 100 milers and 50 milers this young man knows a lot about what it takes to take on big scary goals and to have the self belief and mental strength to see these challenges through.  But it wasn't always that way. You see only 4 years ago Ryan was 235 pound overweight unfit teenager who just got sick of being teased about his weight and decided to do something about it so he started running. First one mile at a time then 2 or 3 and within months he was absolutely hooked. Loving the accolades from people telling him how good he looked he powered on into first marathon then ultra marathon and then bigger and bigger. But he hasn't stopped there besides studying he has also launched a successful hydration pack business and uses the lessons learnt from the huge obstacles he has already faced in his races to fuel his persistence when it comes to business. This guy is a young gun but is neither arrogant nor over confident but a someone with a big heart for others and an amazing future ahead and a lot to teach despite his young age.   We would like to thank our sponsors Running Hot - By Lisa Tamati & Neil Wagstaff If you want to run faster, longer and be stronger without burnout and injuries then check out and TRY our Running Club for FREE on a 7 day FREE TRIAL Complete holistic running programmes for distances from 5km to ultramarathon and for beginners to advanced runners.   All include Run training sessions, mobility workouts daily, strength workouts specific for runners, nutrition guidance and mindset help Plus injury prevention series, foundational plans, running drill series and a huge library of videos, articles, podcasts, clean eating recipes and more. and don't forget to subscribe to our youtube channel at Lisa's Youtube channel and come visit us on our facebook group You can find all our programs, courses, live seminars and more at    We are also holding another live event on the 31st of August- 1st of September in Havelock North, New Zealand - Its a weekend running seminar  Join us for a weekend of fun, inspiration and education around everything Running Do you want to run with less pain and injuries, avoid burnout and over training?
