It's a fascinating look at a re

On June 28th, 2014 Larisa Dannis ran the race of her life, placing 2nd overall female in The (grueling) Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run. She was declared the Dark Horse, the unexpected threat to win.
6 years ago she was overweight, out of shape, and feeling very much lost. Today, she says she’s a gal with hopes of qualifying to run in the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials. Larisa set a personal best at The Boston Marathon this year finishing in 2:44:41, 33rd woman overall and first woman with a non-elite race bib!
Trasie Phan and Elizabeth Kocek, ULTRA Marathon runner, have a candid conversation about how running long distances started for them. Trasie was introduced to ULTRA Marathons in 2009 as a volunteer at the Pacific Crest Trail 50 Mile Run and met Elizabeth in fall of 2011 at a run Trasie organized for San Diego Running Meetup. Trasie invited Elizabeth on a trip to the Grand Canyon in May of 2012 and that is how Elizabeth’s ULTRA Marathon journey started.

On March 31, 1929 seventy seven men began an epic 3,554 mile footrace from New York to Los Angeles punishing their bodies an average of 46 miles for 78 days over mostly unpaved roads in hopes of winning $25,000 in prize money. The 1929 Bunion Derby is considered the most grueling ultra-marathon of all time.
The event promoter Charlie Pyle put together a traveling Vaudeville show in hopes of raising the prize money, complete with dancing debutants, an all-girl band wearing pilot outfits and black faced comedians. This is an amazing tale told by the author Charles B. Kastner.
8 year old Teagen Redden and her 11 year old brother Tajh are both accomplished Ultra-Marathon Runners. Is it even safe to allow/encourage a child that young to run that far? Listen as we interview their parents and a medical professional!
We thought it only fair to allow both parents to share their view on allowing their young children to brave these 100 mile ultra-trail runs. We also invited an unbiased, seasoned runner/Pediatrician to join us to get comments from a medical professional. This is a very controversial topic on parenting as runners.

It was a beautiful day in Los Angeles as more than 25,000 runners ran from the LA Dodgers Stadium to the seaside finish in Santa Monica. We'll take a short stop at the expo, talk with some old friends, a few vendors and the race officials from the San Francisco Marathon. Joe caught up the the CEO of the LA Marathon and spent 15 minutes talking about the event, the bright future of the LA Marathon and the Olympic Trials.

A beautiful day in one of America's favorite cities is the setting for this Rock 'n' Roll race. San Francisco plays host and Transamerica is the sponsor of this point to point half marathon. While at the expo, we visit with some locals who tell us what they love about San Francisco, plus we'll talk with some runners and vendors. Race day is early with the start line near the Pacific Ocean and the finish line at City Hall. Along the way we'll bump into some very tall women who are running, a guy who complains the "On Air" sign is too small, people running for a cause, the Michelob Ultra sponsor and a restaurant owner who doesn't want the show in his space. We also interview people just as they finish. Great stories.
An interview with Michael Wardian, Masters Marathon / Ultra-Marathon World Class Champion and Anthony Almada, an expert in the field of energy replacement during exercise. Join us as we unravel the secret of harnessing energy demands of an endurance champion.
Everyone who trains or races beyond just a few hours is challenged by energy depletion, hitting the wall, or bonking. No one knows this better than an Ultra Marathon Runner. Much less a Champion like Michael Wardian 5 time member of Team USA for the 100K World Championships and 3 time qualifier of the USA Olympic Trials with a personal record of 2:17:49. Richard Diaz has invited these two professionals to share their knowledge on the topic of feeding and energy replacement during the long run.
