Is running a Marathon getting too easy? How about running an Ultramarathon?
In episode 44 I chat with vision impaired ultramarathon runner Jason Romero from Colorado.
Join us and listen to how running Ultramarathons can be done as a blind person. Jason shares his stories of ultra-distance events as well as various handy tips to running in different environments with limited vision.
Jason has just completed the Death Valley Badwater Ultramarathon which is a 135 mile (217 km) run with 13,000 feet (4,000 m) of cumulative elevation gain in temperatures of up to 120 degrees F (48 degrees C).
Check out Jason’s website for more information on his achievements http://www.relentlessromero.com
This is an amazing conversation and an interesting insight into the physical and mental preparation required to take on endurance events.
I also include some motivational quotations.
