Runners are continuously searching for answers, we always want to know what we can do to get better, and how we can keep improving. I don’t know about you, but I always love learning from the experts to find out what they have discovered throughout their career.
At runners connect you know we are all about the science. We love to dive into the research, and give you the most up to date findings without the bias.

I can’t even imagine running 27.2 miles, but these ultra runners are TOUGH, my guest today talks about the popularity of ultra running has risen, and how there are not only 100 mile races, but 200 mile races cropping up. WOW!
I am excited to be joined by another podcast host today, one who I love to listen to, and learn from; Eric Schranz.
