The Oxbow Ultra 2018 Recap_Episode 72

December 3, 2018

What you'll hear on this episode: 

Earlier this year I attempted my first ultra marathon. I went down to Georgia and tackled the 35-mile Georgia Jewel. For many reasons I came up short. You can listen to a recap of that race here: Georgia Jewel Recap

To find some redemption before rolling into 2019, I sought out another ultra opportunity. I ultimately found that opportunity in St. Paul, Virginia at the Oxbow Ultra Marathon. 

Parts of this quest turned out well, but I ultimately came up short on my goal to run 35 miles. One thing I've learned in running, though, is there are always lessons to be learned. In success and in coming up short, running is always telling me something about myself. 

I share some of those lessons in this episode. 


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