Staunton Police Officer and 100 Mile Man Erick Kuhlmann - Episode 56

June 7, 2018

What you'll hear on this episode:


Erick Kuhlmann is a police officer with the Staunton Police Department. He works long hours and varying shifts. Yet, he still finds time to train for 100 mile races and a host of other marathon and ultra distance races in between. Erick spent time talking to me about shifting from marathon distance road races to ultra distance trail races. 

We also talk about his 2018 Boston Marathon. He talks about the weather conditions many called the worst they'd ever run in. He shares what it was like to line up with his dad who was running his first Boston Marathon. That, after an accident several months ago left Erick and his family wondering if his dad would ever run again. 

Erick offers all of us advice about the mental and physicial preparation required to run longer distances. He's run over 100 of them, so his advice is worth something. 

Introduction and closing song: One Flame to Burn (Prospect 7)
