This week’s guest is the incredible ultra runner Coree Woltering!!
Coree recently set the FKT on the 1,200 mile Ice Age Trail through Wisconsin, completing it in 21 days, 13 hours, and 35 minutes. He also is featured on the new Amazon Series “World’s Toughest Race: Eco Challenge Fiji” as a member of Team Onyx, the first all-African American team in expedition racing.
In this episode we chat all about these two huge events!! Coree shares his perspective as an elite ultra runner taking on his first adventure race and the challenges faced along the way. The race looks incredibly difficult and Team Onyx is one of the inspiring groups featured throughout the show.
He also goes into the ups and downs of the Ice Age Trail FKT- a super secret trick to handle trails with crazy amount of ticks, his go-tos when fueling with gas station food, how to breakdown gigantic goals, why you should always listen to Pete Kostelnick’s advice on ankle recovery, and how accepting pain and staying level headed through adversity helped him achieve his goal.
This episode was an absolute blast to record!! Coree is awesome and is a huge inspiration!
I also wanted to thank Adam Casey for rejoining the show to co-host this week!!
