Episode 37: Adharanand Finn – Ultra Runner and Author

LISTEN NOW

Today’s guest is an ultra runner, a podcaster, and the author of The Way of the Runner, Running with the Kenyans, and my favorite running book of all, The Rise of the Ultra Runners. Adharanand Finn joins us to talk about his journey from middle school athletics to a sub-three hour New York City marathon and then a fateful assignment that placed him in the Oman Desert Marathon – a grueling 6 stage race that nearly defeated him, but ultimately lit his fire for ultra-distance running.
We cover a ton of ground in this conversation. If you love running or books about running or listening to men with exotic accents – lace em up, throw in the headphones and give this one a listen.
