In this episode we sit down with recent UTMB champion and course record holder, Courtney Dauwalter. Courtney is one of the most dominant ultrarunners on the scene right now and so we dig into how she handles and leverages failure, the mental game of ultrarunning, and basically try to glean some of her positivity and wisdom into our own running. Enjoy!
We're back! After a summer of craziness including injury, wildfire galore, kids, and another big change (ha-we saved it for the end, so you need to listen to learn what!), Devon and Alison catch up on life. They get into the mindset around injury, listening (or not) to different narratives, 100 mile training, and what to expect from the podcast moving forward.
