For those out of the running jargon loop, an F.K.T. is the acronym for a “fastest known time” event. Generally orchestrated by a few brace souls who develop an event never run before to establish a record. Running a trail race that has never been attempted comes with a great deal of risk. Getting lost, being in inaccessible terrain for extended periods is very dangerous and not for the meek. Join us as we invite Charlie Engle back to share the exploits of his and Nickademus Hollon’s attempt at the Sea to Sea Ultra F.K.T. project, an Ultra trail running event of over 140 miles of unforgiving terrain.www.naturalrunningnetwork.com
This episode was drawn from our archive of shows done 2 years ago. It is an interview with Gilbert Tuhabonye a genocide survivor, world class runner and now an amazing running coach thriving in Austin Texas.

Jim Vance is an elite triathlon coach who has co-authored “Triathlon Science”. He is a two time Amateur World Champion in ITU and Xterra and holds an IronMan PR of 8:37:09.
I brought Jim onto our podcast because he has been at the forefront in research of Power Running. Many believe that when power can be effectively measured in running, as has been cone in cycling, it will be a major game changer. In sports science thus far; heart rate is the most effective metric used to identify work relative to performance. This is an interesting time in endurance sport technology and our goal is to share some insight as to the potential of power as it applies to running performance.
“All records, from 100 meters to the Marathon will drop, when we are able to effectively measure power in training”.
