Jon Olsen Interview
Jon Olsen was at the peak of his career when he decided he just couldn’t race trail ultras any more–at least at the level he expected of himself. The pullings of family commitments and a nasty injury caused him to step back and re-examine his racing…and what emerged was someone who beat a 24 year American Record in the 100 miler (11:59) and has earned great acclaim in other races.
Next up? The 152 mile Spartathlon in Greece. Jon talks to Ethan and I about training, running alone in the morning, what to do when the bathroom is too far away, and a whole lot more.
No matter where you are in your running career, there’s something in this interview for you.
Jon runs for Hoka One One.
Outro Music: Summer Lovin’ by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John
