85: Helene Dumais

Mile After Mile Podcast

Helene Dumais is a professional endurance athlete, coach and speaker. We chat about a race called Infinitus.  Helene explains about The Endurance Society and the Infinitus race events.  Helene Dumais ran 888k (which is about 550.6 miles) to become the first female finisher of Infinitus.  We talk about other races she had done in the past and how she trained.  We talk about the unique location and the terrain of Infinitus. Helene explains how she planned to be able to finish this HUGE race. I learned that it took her more than one try to make it the whole way. So we talk about the earlier attempts which were both epic attempts but not the full distance under the time limit. On her third attempt in 2018 she did complete the entire distance within the time limit.  We talk about the difference between different styles of ultra races including self-supported events.  She shares how she found the Infinitus race.  We talk about how she incorporates training into her everyday life.  We talk about what it feels like to finish this event. We talk about the mindset and mental strategies she used.  We also talk about recovery.  Helene Dumais was so committed to the mission of finishing this epic event that she also created a documentary about her experience. This is called Facing Infinitus.  “Life is like a race. We all have an Infintus to run in life. Beleive it is possible. Go one Step at a time.” - Helene Dumais You can find The Endurance Society and Infinitus here: https://www.endurancesociety.org/infinitus.html You can find Helene Dumais at www.helenedumais.com You can find her on Facebook as Helene Dumais Adventurer The Facing Infinitus documentary is here: www.facinginfinitus.com You can find the full show notes and stream all the episodes of the Mile after Mile Podcast at www.mileaftermilepodcast.com and you can find the host, Amy Stone at www.amysaysso.com
