Nick Ferrara grew up in the Bronx and discovered his love for running later in life when he realized that he had to make some changes for his health.  He seems to gravitate toward gnarly mountain races.  He's done UTMB twice!  He was the first to do Western States and Eastern States in the same year and this past year he completed Hard Rock.  Listen in as we talk about the awesome journey that he has been on!

Nick is not afraid to set BIG goals! As a new runner, Nick Fowler decided to set his sights on the Pacific Crest Trail FKT. When that didn’t work out, he set his sights on the Pacific Northwest Trail FKT and achieved his goal. It wasn’t easy, and he had some hiccups even before he started, but he was determined and adapted along the way to get it done.(You’ll love his improvised strategy for dealing with chafing!)

Last weekend, I raced the North Fork 50 mile race in Buffalo Creek, CO.  It was a training race and I got it done, but I had some issues along the way.  I thought it would be interesting for the listeners to listen in as I discussed the race with my coach, Cliff Pittman.  Cliff Pittman has been a guest on the podcast before and he always brings lots of knowledge to the table.  Listen in as we discuss what was good, what was bad, and what was ugly.
