Jim Gardner did the London to Cambridge 100k race as his FIRST ultramarathon! And in doing so, he raised a bunch of money for Pancreatic Cancer UK - a cause near to his heart, after his friend Stephen recently passed away from that disease. Great story in this week's Ultrafinishers podcast - the final episode:

If you tried running a 100-mile race twice and didn't make it, would you try again? That's what my friend Rob Howard did in June when he tried the Bighorn Mountain Wild and Scenic Trail Run 100-miler for the third time. And this time he made it across the finish line! And he puked a LOT along the way. Great story about persistence! Full details in today's Ultrafinishers podcast:

Rob Steger just did the Mohican 50 mile ultramarathon, and it was his FIRST 50 miler. He was presented with a bunch of unexpected obstacles (starting the night before the race) but he met each one and spun it into a positive. Lots of great lessons to learn from this story!

Tracy Cooley was almost done with her very first 100k race, and she was considering dropping out. Her 9 year old daughter Josie was there with her, and immediately told her mother that quitting was NOT an option. Listening to this interview, it will be pretty clear where that young lady gets her spunk! Get the full story on this week's Ultrafinishers podcast:

When someone says they don't have enough time to train for an ultramarathon, that's just an excuse. We have time for the things we WANT to have time for. Matt Sanders just did his first 50 mile ultramarathon - the Heartland 50 in Kansas. And since he travels a lot for business, most of his training runs were done away from home on unfamiliar trails and routes. He made it happen because he was determined!

Why would anyone sign up for a 50k and train for it, then decide 2 days before the race to do the 50 MILE option instead? Raelynn Zappulla just did that, and she had never done a 50 mile race. But she finished the North Face Endurance Challenge 50 miler in Washington DC. Find out how it all played out in this week's Ultrafinishers podcast:
