00:00:45 Start and introduction

00:09:31 “Year in the life of….” This week Amanda Hyatt tells us all about her first ultra. Not  one day, but two days of 33 miles. As many of you will be able to relate to, it didn’t quite go to plan. But did she finish…?

00:27:52 News Plenty of news with a catch up from Rocky Raccoon, The Coastal Challenge, Fuego Y Agua and more…

00:35:06 Jez Bragg completed The Long Pathway, Te Araroa and I was very fortunate to speak to him less than 24 hours after he crossed the finish line. I think you will be able to hear in his voice how this journey not only exhausted him but changed him. Check out his website HERE and take a look at his sponsors The North Face

Place of Birth:
Syracuse, NY

Current Home town: 
Juneau, AK (May-Aug) & Nederland, CO (Sept-April)

What MHW/Montrail gear and clothing is in your quiver for a typical day at/ on the trail? 
Montrail Mountain Masochist, Mountain Hardwear Effusion Jacket, Mountain Hardwear Fluid Race Vest, Mountain Hardwear Way Too Cool tops.

How were you introduced to your sport?
Came to Ultrarunning on my own. It just sounded fun to try to run a 50k.

What inspires you? 
I’m most inspired by getting out in the mountains and exploring new places.

What advice would you give to newcomers to (your sport) today? 
Try to enjoy every run you go out on. If you’re not enjoying the running that your doing, try some new things until you are.

What the first thing you look forward to doing after a long run / race?
Seeing friends, family, and other racers at the finish… and drinking a beer.

How do you balance your training schedule with your “real” job? 
I’m one of the lucky few in the sport whose training is my “real job.”

Living for Now. Happy and easy.

When singing karaoke, what song do you sing to bring down the house?
Have never, and likely will never sing karaoke

What music gets you fired up?
I don’t listen to music to get fired up. The music I do listen to tends to be music which has more of the opposite effect, keeping me calm and mellow, which I think is a lot more beneficial in ultrarunning, a sport that requires so much patience and ability to take things as they come.
