Today's guest, Scott Poling, is pastor of Harvest New Beginnings Church in Oswego, IL, and has been for 26 years. He was drawn to the adventure of ultrarunning. He loves bringing the Spiritual into the Physical. Listen in as we talk about u...
Tapering for LOViT 100......taper.....madness.....thinking about my "Why" - for running and life.
"It's not about perfect. It's about EFFORT. And when you implement that effort into your life....EVERY SINGLE DAY, that's where the transformation happens. That's how change occurs. Keep Going. Remember why you started."
Kurt is a mathematician from Arkansas who is living and teaching in Maryland. His social media posts have cracked me up over the years. We talk a lot about races in his home state of Arkansas, particularly the Arkansas Traveller and the LOViT 100. We spend some time exploring his journey this year to get stronger by working out using kettlebells, maces, clubs, and sandbags.

Like many of us, Trevor started running a little later in life and never looked back. In the relatively short time he's been running Ultramarathons (since 2016), he's run SEVENTY ultras, including two 200 milers and twenty 100 milers. Maybe it's because he uses races as training? Well, he's far from done! This year he's planning on increasing his distance with a 600K and 250 miler!

I could tell that Marcus was a great guy. On the podcast, I finally got to actually talk to him and get to kn...

Bryan and I met in person at the Moab 240, which he went on to complete. He's an interesting guy who has battled some dark times and is grateful to come out of the other end. Although he spent much of his early life in the mountains, Bryan didn't run his first ultra at 50 years old! He's 55 and is looking forward to many more years on the trail.

Luis grew up with martial arts in his blood and competed at a high level. We talk about that life and culture and how he got into running long distances. Louis owns and runs a Taekwondo school in Miami, hosts tournaments, and does race directing! He's a busy guy, but loves what he does!
