Jon Olsen Interview


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.


Episode Notes:

Jon runs for Hoka One One.

Outro Music: Summer Lovin’ by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John
