Trailrunning through a forest at beautiful sunshine

Thinking about running your first ultramarathon? You won’t regret it, we promise. But…

There are a few things you should probably know first. Actually, there are 17 things.

In this week’s episode, Matt and I think back on what it was like training for our first ultramarathonsthe hangups and frustrations, and the advice that could have saved us many headaches.

And we’re sharing this with the hope that you don’t make some of the same mistakes we did.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Switching from roads to trails.
  • The long training run.
  • Does running an ultra make you a worse runner?
  • Focusing on the downhills (and learning how to walk).
  • The beautiful curse of finishing your first ultramarathon.

  1. I thought is just me but I see you guys talking about running downhills – so I’m not crazy, they can be brutal! Never heard of your podcast but you guys are serious business so I just added you on my phone – found you on Pocket Casts. Cheers! Vic
