As if the Badwater 135 mile ultra wasn’t sufficiently hellish, the mercury for this year’s race may hit the 120s. In episode 11, elite ultrarunner Glen Redpath discusses his preparation for the race (interview transcript), which begins next Monday. Elsewhere in the episode we highlight the odd confluence between the last laps of the 5,000m and 800m races, Gregg takes a Hansons training book out of the library, and Brenn adapts Alan Culpepper’s advice on run/life balance to figure out how to train for a marathon while on vacation.
