From Broken Back to Endurance Running World Record: Kevin Muller

If you want to master the tyranny of the long run, take a few tips from Kevin Muller. In this great interview with Kevin Cassidy in the latest issue of Run 4 Your Life, he talks about everything from his first marathon to endurance mindset, ham & pineapple pizza and a renegade training regime.

He’s a mean competitor but also one of the nicest guys on the Australian, and now world, ultrarunning circuit.

Great North Walk 100-miler Race Report: It begins…

Hi, Roger again. I’ve put the race report from the 100-miler that beasted me on the weekend on my blog http://www.runeatsleeprun.com. It was an incredible way to finish this month of ultrarunning adventure but hardly an outing in high-paced glory. Rather, it was a total sufferfest. As much as it became a battle for survival, more or less, it is still one of the most meaningful finishes I have ever achieved. My crewman Graham and pacer Jess were exceptional and I certainly put their patience to the test. Let’s face it, we all expected a Sunday lunch on the beach and instead found ourselves literally racing against the clock right to the 160th kilometre.

It wasn’t necessarily what it was hoped to be, but it was raw, it was heartfelt, it was do or die, and at the end of the day, if an event is all of those things and more, what more could you possibly ask?

Running, it’s the sport we love because it gives people an excuse to tell us how far they drive.

If you’ve ever run a marathon, you will understand that joke.

You’ll also probably understand Andrew Hedgman, one of Hoka Australia’s Ambassadors of Awesome.

He has broken the 3-minute rule in his first video blog, which ticks in at just over 5-minutes but we’re pretty sure you’ll get a laugh and more from it. Which is a fancy way of saying it’s time well spent.

It’s also a nice reminder that running is about more than course records.
