Ep 14| Interview with Pro Trail Runner Clare Gallagher

On this episode, we welcome Clare Gallagher, a professional trail runner with Patagonia, 2 time Leadville 100 winner, Western States Winner and many more wins and records. We discuss how she got into trail running and doing ultra marathons, how her training looks for 100 mile races and her coach, David Roche's training philosophies, and how the recent Leadville 100 race went. We also discuss some fun facts about ultras and what inspired and continues to inspire Clare's love and appreciation for this type of racing. We then dive into Clare's environmental activism and how it pertains to runners with similar goals for the planet and how to take some time to slow down in your busy, consuming life and have more mindfulness about yourself and the world around you, as inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh's writings. We finish off with the Daddy Duos of how the average person can enact the most environmental change.
