Johan Steene Interview

Ever had crotch chafing so bad that you threw up? What if it was in the first few hours of a 500k race across Tennessee? Would you go on?

Johan Steene just set a new record for Vol State 500k, and he’s here to tell the story about training (surprising), diet (not too surprising), Barkley, gear, chafing, and really what possesses a Swedish CEO to travel to the South East to run on country roads for four days.

Johan’s a great guy who finds Barkley a “cozy” run, and who’d love to take on Hardrock, despite living at 21′ above sea level.

Fun interview with a compelling guy.
