This week we are welcoming back ultra runner, race director, and all around awesome guy Brad Dains!
Brad is currently taking on race directing duties of the Booneville Backroads Ultra, “Iowa’s First 100 Miler” through the beautiful rolling countryside south of Des Moines. He has been with Booneville as either a racer, a volunteer or a co-race director over the last 6 years and is extremely passionate about the ultra running community.
Along with Booneville, Brad has ran multiple 100 milers all over the United States, and has even completed the distance on a treadmill…yes, you read that correctly, he once decided it was a “good” idea to run 100 miles on a freaking treadmill!!
In this episode we dive all into Brad’s experiences running and organizing Booneville. He explains what makes this race so difficult, shares adventures and inspiring stories he has witnessed through the years, and gives tips to me and my five friends who are planning on taking this race on in May (See the previous “Booneville” episode- It will be the first ultra for four of these dudes and the first 100k for my buddy Travis and I).
Hope you guys enjoy the show! I highly suggest going back to episode #91 of the show to hear more of Brad’s philosophies, adventures, and how he mentally prepares for super long races!
