Brendan Leonard, founder and creative drive behind the popular semi-rad.com website joins Sarah and I for a wide-ranging talk about running, outdoor adventures, media, and more. Brendan’s an interesting guy and leads a multi-fasceted life that many URP listeners will appreciate and relate to…all told through the eyes and ears of a humorist who doesn’t take ultra trail running too seriously.
He and friend Jayson Sime recently appeared in the now-viral “How to Run 100 Miles” about their run at Run Rabbit Run 100 in Colorado last year, and we dig deep into what it was like finishing with just minutes to spare, advice on running with your friend, and what got him through the deep bonks.
We talk about funny Instagram accounts, the influence of cameras on the course, why he hates to run, but likes running, and how he got sober in his early 20s. Lots to cover!
