Bridgette and Olivia share with us the story of their mom, who died by suicide. They are very open and honest about how things happened, how they have been dealing with it, and what they plan on doing next. We were very happy to talk with them. Please enjoy!
In this episode, we chat with Eleni Pinnow, who lost her sister, Aletha to suicide on February 20th, 2016. Eleni wrote a very touching, open and honest obituary about her sister and the cause of her death. This eventually lead to an article being published in The Washington Post. We appreciate everything that Eleni is doing to honor her sister's memory and help defeat the stigma of mental illness. http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/obituaries/3959839-aletha-meyer-pinnow...

Season 1.5 ends with a long and fun 2-hour chat with ultra speedster Jim Walmsley.

Enjoy this interview, because we sure did!
In this episode, we are extremely happy to interview the winner of the 2016 Western States 100-mile Endurance Run, Kaci Lickteig. This one is more conversational and we wander all over the place. We talk about her running career and training, work life, personal life, her past struggles with mental health and eating disorders, the running scene in the Omaha area, and some other random things. Perhaps we talk about ourselves a little too much, and I'm sure this is the least professional...
It is our honor to interview Karl "Speedgoat" Meltzer, the man with the most 100-mile wins in history, and director of the Speedgoat 50K, Vertical Mile, and Quadbanger races. In this episode, we talk about the Speedgoat races, Karl's accomplishments thus far, and what's coming next for this true ultra legend. Enjoy!
