Tim and Jess sat down with Mike right before Tim and Mike took on the Leadville 100 (after 14 bathroom stops, Mike somehow still came in 10th), and right before Mike also ran the insane Pikes Peak Marathon 6 hours after Leadville,becoming only the 2nd person to ever complete the two back-to-back.
BTW, Pikes Peak climbs over 7,815 feet to the top of the 14,115 foot peak… in the first half. What, the absolute, F.
As a bit of background, we spoke with Mike earlier this year right before he broke the World Marathon Challenge (7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days) record—averaging a 2:45:56 per marathon. Since then he’s run some of the most difficult and exclusive races in the world – the Barkley Marathons, the Western States 100, the Hardrock Hundred, and now Leadville and Pikes Peak.
This dude is like no other, and we were really happy to sit down and chat with him again. Enjoy!
