The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Have you ever run an ultramarathon? If you want to, you can do it. Travis Macy, his dad, Mark, Mimi Anderson, and Bart Yasso are going to make you want to go for a run today and forget about the distance.

Mimi Anderson says, “I had that moment in my heart. You know, where somebody suggests something, and I thought, 'Well, why can't I do that?' It was so out of the ordinary.”

Bart Yasso, “People ask me about motivation and I always said, I had the motivation. I had to, like, hold myself back that I didn't go out and run 40 miles every day. I was… I just loved it.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

Obstacles are all good mental training
Focusing on the process rather than the outcome
Setting goals that you want to beat and working to beat them
Running for the love of it, not just for sport
