Jeff Browning Interview

Jeff Browning has been running ultramarathons since 2001 and has racked up a string of victories, course records, and lessons from around the world.  I got a chance to speak with Jeff about a number of issues important to MUT runners.

In this interview we talk about:

  • How he’s stayed relatively injury-free for 15 years.
  • Racing across glaciers in Chile and the importance of avoiding crevaces.
  • The insanely technical trails on Mt Fuji and what it’s like running without eyeglasses.
  • Having a “no DNFs” attitude, but having to pull the plug at UTMB.
  • How we can all shave significant time by efficient aid station visits.
  • Whether or not Max King will kill my parents this week.
