This week we talk to an ultra runner who “lit a fire” under himself and used the motivation to win The Psycho Psummer 50k. He’s our Trail Nerd of the Month, David Wakefield.

Understanding that many of you are gearing up for your goal race of the year, we hear from Ironman legend Mark Allen who is an expert at quieting the mind.

And we round out the show by hearing a story about a man who despised endurance athletes until he developed “the runner’s gaze.”

This week’s show is brought to you by the SilverMan Full & Half Distance Triathlon and by Sock Geek.

    Great interview with David, a superb athlete! I first saw him cross the finish line nine years ago, when he placed fourth at the Flat Rock 50K near Independence, Kansas (he won the event four years later). Wonder if he's headed back to Flat Rock this year?
