This week I am very excited to welcome the fantastic runner Alyssa Clark to the podcast!
Alyssa has one of the most outstanding stories I’ve heard in a long time. Once Covid locked her down in Italy, she decided that she was going to run a marathon every day for a few weeks. Well…..being an ultrarunner (which gives you that extra dash of lunacy) a few weeks became a month which became two months which became the consistent routine of a marathon every morning before she found herself in the 70s, 80s and 90s. She completely shattered the previous “Consecutive Marathon” World Record and more amazingly, did so while in the middle of a move back to the United States!
On top of all that, Alyssa is just a super knowledgeable runner and an awesome person to chat with! Recently she has cohosted a bunch of wonderful episodes for Rob Steger’s “Training For Ultra” Podcasts and began a website called Training4Adventure which shares all sorts of inspiring adventure stories.
Can’t wait for you guys to listen to this episode!
Also Rob is acting as our special cohost to intro Alyssa at the beginning of the show and chat filmmaking and his “Triple Crown of 200s” doc in the outro so I hope you all enjoy those segments as well!
