John Burton Interview

_IC_0040-2John Burton is by no means an elite ultrarunner, but he focused on Hardrock for three years and pulled an elite-level performance out of his hat this past weekend.

Despite being freezing cold, shattering a finger, freaking out about passing one of his heroes, and dropping his pacer, John came in at a very respectable 30 hours on the challenging course.

How’d he do it? Sarah and I chat with him about his training, his diet, dedication, and what’s next on his schedule.
