We are passionate about running. Our podcast was created for runners who feel the same about our sport, whether you’re just starting your journey past 26.2 or you’re a dirty veteran.
Reaching your running potential requires access to sport specific information. Our podcast features a variety of qualified experts to discuss nutrition, training, sport psychology, race strategy, injury management, trail gear, beer and many more topics. Now, go out and run.
“Why?” I get that question a lot. I don’t know why I like to run ultras, I just do. Maybe it’s the challenge, feeling like I can run forever, running 10 miles before the sun rises, post run beer, leaving my problems behind me at mile 17, meeting other runners, aid station grub, the birds-eye-view of where I ran from and where I’m going, kindness from strangers when you need help, and leaving it all on the trail knowing you gave it your very best when felt your very worst.
I’m not fastest, I’m not the strongest and heaven knows I’m not the smartest runner, but I learn from my mistakes, which is good knowledge to pass along.
I hope you enjoy our podcast as much as you enjoy the trail. firstname.lastname@example.org
My running career started at age 8 and carried me through high school up to college. After that, I took a 10 year break, abused my body, and ended up with some weird problems. Fast forward to 2005.
Now I relish every single day running. Whether it’s training, racing, or even just TALKING about running, I’m a happy guy. I run everything from 5ks to timed events to 100 kilometers, and am currently tempting the ultra gods by having no ultra DNFs to my name.
I edit the URP Daily News, handle the biz side of things, and arrange most gear reviews for the site. If you’ve got an interesting story or would like us try your wares, shoot me an email.
My goal with URP is to help ferry our sport into its next chapter. Races are getting bigger, purses are getting larger, runners are starting younger, and it’s in all of our interest to pay attention to this transition.
