Our podcast was created in mid-2011 for runners who are passionate about running. Whether you’re just starting your journey past 26.2 or you’re a dirty veteran, we’ve got info and fun to share.
Reaching your running potential requires access to sport specific information. URP episodes feature elite runners, veterans, wacky characters, and a variety of qualified experts to discuss everything necessary to be successful on the trails. Mix in a bunch of gear reviews, beer reviews and commentary, and you’ve got a pretty good understanding of our interests.
Our 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. 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
Whether it’s training, racing, or even just TALKING about running, I’m a happy guy. I run everything from road 5ks to 100 milers in the mountains, and am currently tempting the ultra gods by having
no one ultra DNF(s) to my name. My proudest running achievement is getting back on the trail all alone after passing out in an SUV in the biting cold at mile 60 at Bryce 100.
I edit the URP Daily News and the Commentary, 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.
