Ken Michal and Running Stupid

#29 - Ken Michal has been running ultras a long time. He's also been podcasting a long time. Running Stupid has been up and running for over 10 years. It's unlike any other podcast of its kind. His personable approach; friendly, determined, yet somehow, humorous mannerism is perfect for a personal account of all his races. He gives us race reports like no other, especially his Hurt 100 reports, they are not to be missed. Hawaii's Hurt race is one of the hardest of all the Hundos. He tells us why he loves it so much in this episode and why we all need to keep going. He also explains what happened at this year's Western States. You will be motivated to run after this episode, or at least to dream about running, he has that kind of affect. For all of Ken's info, go to our website at: for comments, contact me at:
