110 ~ Running Epic5 in Hawaii with Beth Whitman and Chris Fagan
1 hr 50 min

Today's conversation is a bit unusual and hopefully you'll be as inspired as always. Today I’m the guest and Chris Fagan, whom you might recall from Episode 88 of the She's Bold Podcast, asks ME the questions.

This is all about my Epic5 run in Hawaii!

As a reminder, Chris and her husband walked 560 miles over 48 days to the South Pole, pulling sleds with all of their gear that weighed about 200 pounds. Yeah, super inspirational. If you’re new to the show, be sure to go back and listen to that episode.

Chris suggested that we sit down and talk through my recent experience running Epic5. As an experienced ultra-runner herself, she had some great questions. We were able to talk through my preparation for running five 50Ks in 5 days on 5 Hawaiian islands, as well as the actual experience and then my recovery.

You’ll also hear a question that was asked by Dana, one of my Patreon supporters. Getting to ask questions of guests is just one benefit you’ll get as a supporter of the show. For just $5 month you’ll also be added to our private Facebook group, and have access to bonus content that is usually in the form of a question that I ask the guest after we’ve finished recording the main part of the show.

I hope you’re feeling generous right as I’d love have you more involved with She’s Bold community :-)

Before I get to our conversation, I do want to give a huge shout out to the Epic5 race directors, Rebecca Morgan and Chris Brennan and our photographer, Colin Cross. These folks did an amazing job at supporting our small group of runners. I can’t thank them enough for making this event happen, given our small but mighty numbers.

And thanks to Peter Jurt for running Epic5 for the 2nd year in a row. As I told him, given that he knew what he was about to get into, I was even more impressed that he showed up.

The folks at Epic5 are best known for their triathlon races – where participants complete 5 triathlons in 5 days on 5 Hawaiian islands. And next year they are doing 10 triathlons in 10 days.

So throughout my runs, I knew it would be nothing compared to what the participants in that event would be taking on.

If you’re a runner and want to challenge yourself, I highly recommend the Epic5 run. It was truly a fantastic experience for me. And while there were just 3 of us running it this year, it’s limited to 12 so it’ll always be an intimate group of people that you’ll get to know well during the experience. You can see more about them at epic5.com.

With that, please enjoy this conversation with me about Epic5!
