Many of you know Ben Gibbard as the lead singer/songwriter for Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service, but it turns out, he’s just as big of an ultrarunning geek as the rest of us. When most of us talk about our records, Ben has to clarify which he’s referring to.
Less than a week after his puke-fest at Leona Divide, I chat with Ben about his first “sort of DNF”, life on the road, the humbling aspect of MUT running, gear, and his new album. Definitely a fun talk with a whole lot of “ahhhhssss” from me.
