A Conversation with Blake Wood


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.

Some Blake Wood info, not updated in years, it seems.
