In this episode I talk with an incredible ultrarunner who is a real rocket scientist! Blake Wood has completed the Barkley Marathons, 22 Hardrock finishes, and ran two sub 3-hour marathons 41 years apart, and can still run a 5:21 mile at the age of 60. That’s just for starters. On top of that he’s a real nuclear physicist at the famous Los Alamos National Laboratory. We talk science, cross country coaching, and of course some running.
I talk about running the Silver Rush 50 out of Leadville, Colorado. Also I interview finisher Alicia Heyne and 15.5 mile finisher Tiana Smith.
