Pam Reed Interview

Pam Reed has run ninety six 100 milers and finished 50+ Ironman triathlons. She’s set the record for 24 hours on the track, and won–outright–Badwater two times. Most impressive to many was her 2015 Western/Hardrock/Badwater triple. All three of those events occur within one month. Woof!

In this interview, we talk about everything from Courtney Dauwalter (and candy!) to what it’s like directing a large marathon in the age of Covid. Has Pam learned anything during her races over the last few months? We talk about trail blindness, beer, eating disorders, and the insane article written about her in 2005.
