About this Episode

I talk with Karl Meltzer about how he got started with ultrarunning as well as define what constitues and 'ultra' run versus a normal run.

We dive deep into his crazy Appalachian Trail fastest known time record. How he planned the 45 day record breaking run, his other failed attempts, injuries, diet, pace, van logistics, crew setup, and more.

Karl talks about how he started to make a living running all while bartending at night. Some of his brand partnerships evolved into one of the most popular Red Bull documentaries of all time as well as designing one of the most popular trail running shoes on the market, the Speedgoat by Hoka One One.
