We’ve spoken with Hal before, but it’s generally right after or before a major run. Western States, Hardrock, Javelina, and the JMT FKT interviews have all been great, but this week Sarah and I spoke with him about not running–he’s been injured since July with a torn meniscus.
With a new book on the shelves, an infant at home, races to direct, and a running store in full bloom, we pick his brain about training, strollers, being “Mr. Happy”, beer, obstacle courses, and especially what the book is all about.
Hal’s book is available here. (affiliate link)
Find Sarah’s Grand to Grand report (and other great stuff) on her blog here.
Outro music: Every Day I Write the Book by Elvis Costello and the Attractions. Though I love EC, I wanted the Ron Sexsmith version, but it’s not available off YouTube.
