This week’s show features an amazing photographer and awesome ultra runner Zandy Mangold!
Zandy started ultrarunning after being hired as the photographer for the Racing the Planet series. Since then he has been all around the world and has participated in a wide variety of races- everything from week long stage races in Chile to the Badwater 135 to the Georgia Death Race and so much more!!
In this episode Zandy explains the journey of turning his passion for photography into his career. He also gives us a rundown of the 4 desert races, talks about the conundrum of watching people suffer through an ultra marathon only to think to yourself “I think I should do this!” and describes the extreme heat he faced at Badwater this year.
Hope you guys enjoy the show! I really loved chatting with Zandy. I always think it’s super inspiring when someone is living their life guided by their passions!
