Anthony Costales Interview | Preparing for Ultra Distances

Anthony Costless just clicked off a 2:13:12 marathon at CIM, a mere four weeks after finishing 2nd at the USATF Trail Championships to Mario Mendoza in Moab. While Anthony hasn’t yet crested 26.2, we talk a lot about sub-ultra distances and what he’s doing to train for his first trail ultras in 2018. Keep your eye on this guy!

In this interview we talk about:

  • How he coaches himself and handles “off days.”

  • Running with his wife and dog on cold days in Utah.

  • Marathon race strategy and why CIM was so perfect.

  • Which elite MUT runner he’s looking to for ultramarathon advice.

  • How he plans on handling nutrition during an ultramarathon.

  • Which races he’s eyeing for his debut in the upcoming year.
