Between mouthfuls of oatmeal, Mike Welden recounts his long, tortuous path to the Laurel Highlands 70 mile race this past June. From a high-octane skiing accident in Canada to breaking into the track at a maximum-security all-girl’s school, Mike’s penchant for the unconventional and utterly ridiculous makes for a gripping story.
It’s not all jokes, though. Throughout the episode, Mike also shares his experience with a new coach, reworking his racing mentality, and a raw, honest look at the ultrarunning experience.
