Episode notes

Corrine and Buzz offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse into UTMB, revealing a few race hiccups and what it’s like to livestream an event of this magnitude. Then Corrine sits down with Oregon PCT FKT holder Emily Halnon to learn about her unique experience setting the record in partnership with the former fastest time owner. A inspiring conversation that goes deeper on Emily’s story: My friend helped me beat her FKT record. We both won. Finally, Buzz speaks with Caroline from Wisconsin about how to dial in race nutrition as her distances increase. Turns out, chocolate and jelly beans are a strategic choice.
