Rank #10: Why Do We Run - The Ultra Runner Jack Johnson

Podcast cover
Read more

My final guest on the podcast's "Why Do We Run" series is Jack Johnson. In the past two days we've had the perspective on why we run from a marathon chaser and a 21 time marathoner, but today we get the perspective from Jack. Jack is a 2 time 100 mile race finisher and has completed over 20 ultramarathons in the past 10 years. This wasn't always the case for Jack though because he didn't even start running until the age of 30. In his second road marathon attempt he qualified for Boston then quickly found ultra trail running and has not looked back. We get into a lot of great topics like mindset, what ultra running has done for Jack, and some detailed reports on what it's like running 100 miles!
