Matt Flaherty Interview

Matt Flaherty Interview

Brewing with Senseman
Matt (l) and friend Brian Senseman brewing beer in the kitchen.

Matt’s got a wicked ‘stache, brews beer, plays the guitar, and has got some screaming fast times on his feet.  I was curious to learn more about this guy who quit his attorney gig in his quest to break 5 hrs in the 50 milers.

His goal in the 100k championships next month is somewhere around a 6:19 min/mile pace, he ran TNF Championships as his first ultra and blew up at mile 28, and he prefers races and distances that he can adequately train for. In short, we had a lot to talk about, and somehow we managed to squeeze in some beer geek chatter as well.
