The Western States Endurance Run is one of the oldest ultra trail events in the world and certainly one of the most challenging.

He’s a multiple-time finisher who has completed studies on endurance sports and its effects on the human body.
Today on Endurance Planet, we have the pleasure of hearing from Marty and getting his insights.
