Maggie Guterl Interview

Maggie Guterl – Ultrarunner

Two years ago, Maggie Guterl was a solid mid packer with a few marathons and ultramarathons behind her. Then something snapped. She got a coach, became laser-focused, and represented the US overseas.  Currently, she’s aiming for a Golden Ticket to Western States and winning races.

So what happened? How’d she go from average to great? Sarah and I dig into her life a bit to track her ascension in the ultra ranks and find out what makes her tick.

Maggie has a mindset and a drive that’s propelling her to greatness, as well as a creative bent that allows her to finance her trips in a creative way.  We really enjoyed talking with Maggie Guterl…now enjoy the show.
