146 Candice Burt - Humans of Ultrarunning
Candice Burt wears many hats in the world of Ultrarunning. She is a runner herself, she directs and holds multiple races every year and now she has started a podcast called Humans of Ultrarunning.
We talk about the trails near her home in Leavenworth, WA. One of her favorite spots, the Enchantments, is only 13 miles away. Hiking, running and skiing are easy to do in her hometown.
I paused to note Candice had just raced the Hurt 100 ultra marathon in Hawaii about a week before our conversation. She brings up her goal to get the supported FKT on the 800 mile long Arizona Trail this year.
Humans of Ultrarunning 12 or 13 great episodes. We mention Courtney Dauwalter from episode one, Gene Dykes from her most recent episode and her bonus show about Candice’s own solo/unsupported FKT on the Wonderland Trail.
I also asked Candice about women’s strength in long distance running and hiking and what are her fears when out alone.
