Bob Shebest Interview
Fresh off his win at Canyons 100k, Bob Shebest (Hoka ONE ONE) joins me to talk about one thing he did differently at this race–he ran without his GPS watch. We talk a length about staying engaged on the trails and focusing on the moment, rather than the data.
In this episode, we discuss:
- The process of training and running versus just running.
- The “muddy water” analogy and how it can help you in your next race.
- The PEDs that Bob is most fond of using. Wait, what?
- Your mood and intuition during a race and the need to “change the channel” when negativity starts creeping in.
- How he really felt about his Spring races and his quest for the elusive Western States Endurance Run Golden Ticket.
- What he thought about the Mackey/Collins brouhaha that had him thrust into a conversation he didn’t want a part of.
- What his insane race calendar for the year is looking like.
