Welcome back everybody - after a bit of a Summer break, we are back with new episodes of the podcast. As always, I am your host Troy Busot and right out of the gate we have a conversation with an amazing running who will be representing her home country of Mexico in the upcoming Olympics in Tokyo.

Imagine yourself at 11 years old. Growing up in a small town about 100 miles outside of Mexico City. And every day after school, you make your way to a crowded city bus that takes you the hour-long journey, solo, to running practice. For eight years, you do this, winning youth championships, and ultimately a full ride scholarship to Kansas State University, where upon arriving you know zero English, crash headlong into a whole new level of competition, deal with injuries and burnout, and ultimately set running aside to pursue a desk job.

That alone would have a made a great job, but in part 2 we'll talk about the 180 degree turn that life threw at our guest that takes her from a Boston Qualifying time at her first marathon in Seattle, to uprooting her entire life and relationship to move back to her home town and begin training again, falling flat on her face in her first test, only to break a 22 year old record in the outdoor 1500 meter run mere months later.

It's an inspiring and amazing story, so if you're ready for the show, crank it up and let's go!

    42. Phil Pinti - Ultra Runner on Grief, Catharsis, & Building Yourself Up Mile by Mile

    1:26:07

    42 - Phil Pinti  Phil Pinti - aka @macho_man_runneth - cruised into his 30s with brass ring firmly in hand. A post-9/11 stint in the Marines had him deployed to - and now safely home from Iraq. Married to his college sweetheart and the love of his life and raising two beautiful young children.  A life-long athlete, our guest made the Hershey Half Marathon an annual family pilgrimage. When hip-pain sidelined his wife, however, and normal treatments did nothing to alleviate the injury, tests revealed that his 33 year old bride was suffering from stage-4 lung cancer, which would tragically take her life just 6 short months later. Faced with picking up the pieces and raising their two young children alone, Phil turned to a local race - the Mid Maryland Ultra 50K - in part to search for and feel a pain different from the anguish he had felt from his wife's passing just 3 months earlier. The race gave him some perspective and as you'll hear, made him a better man and father, and drove him forward in his life. He continues to live the lessons that he learns on ultra courses around the country - which he will be doing in a few weeks here in Colorado at the Desert RATS ultra stage race which will take him on a 6 day running journey from Fruita, CO to Moab, UT. It will be his 3rd running of this race.

    41. Chris Eck - Marathoner by 8th Grade, 100K Ultra Runner by High School

    1:04:13

    Think back to Junior High. What were your highlights? Your accomplishments? Today's guest was introduced to running by his elementary school's P.E. coach who organized a daily run and jog for his students. Being somewhat socially awkward, this young man spent his lunch hour running laps and eventually logging over 60 miles as a 6th grader. Before moving on to High School, he finished his 8th grade year by writing his own training plan for and completing the Eugene Marathon. He spent his High School years on the Dean's list - maintaining a near 4.0 GPA, and managed to establish himself as a respectable 3K runner in Track, completed several other marathons and finished two 24 hours runs - each time passing 100K. He earned himself an academic full ride scholarship to college - where he is now - saving money for his first home with a goal of graduating on time, debt-free, and in control of his future. That P.E. teacher, incidentally, was none other than the guest from episode 28, THE King of FKTs, Jason Hardrath. And the Student, and today's guest, is Chris Eck. A truly humble and inspirational young man with whom I was honored to spend a Saturday afternoon speaking with. And that's the show! Hope you enjoyed it. I am Troy Busot and thanks again to Chris Eck for joining us.

    40. Dan Lamorte - Weight loss and found miles. Down 180 pounds, Dan runs an Ultra!

    1:51:39

    After an arm injury cut his collegeate pitching career short, you could say that today's guest took some off of athletics. So much so, in fact, that he gained the weight equivalent of another version of himself - 180 pounds to be exact. After some failed attempts to reverse course and resigned to this fate, he told his folks that maybe they should stop pushing him to lose the weight and end his sedintary lifestyle - he just didn't see a solution within himself. Then, he found what many would consider to be an unlikely catalyst that would get him off the couch and out onto the first of what would be many runs in his journey to losing 180 pounds and running his first 40 mile Ultra in Pennsylvania. What was the secret? Well, you'll have to listen to the show to find out.

    36. Dirk Friel - Co-Founder of Training Peaks, Ski Mountaineer, Ex Pro Cyclist

    1:37:20

    Today's Guest needs little introduction. He is a former professional cyclist, Co-Founder of legendary training platform Training Peaks, and the son of the author of several endurance training bibles, Joe Friel. That is right, Dirk Friel joins us today on the Athlinks Podcast. We had a great chat about training slower to get faster. The importance of recovery days. and he will school you on the importance of the 80/20 rule. We reminisce about his youth spent as an American in Europe as a pro cyclist and how he and fellow racer and previous guest of this podcast, Anton Villatoro were bamboozled by Guatemalan race officials who deliberately directed them into a wrong turn, costing the American's the race. Dirk is a great guy - fantastic coach and entrepreneur and I think you'll love hearing what he has to say about the world of training, racing, and living an active life.
