Join Coach Patrick from Endurance Nation ( for another special Team Endurance Nation interview podcast with Gabe Peterson, one of our newest Community Moderators. Gabe has long since left the world of triathlon for more adventurous events. If it's epic, and there's a race nearby, Gabe has likely done it. From the Bear 100(22k vertical) to the Wasatch 100 (24k vertical) to the Leadville 100, Gabe has put himself through a ton of tight spots just to bring you some incredible advice and motivation.

Key Talking Points:

  • Build into ultra running with a progression: Marathon to 50k to 50 miler and then 100 miler.
  • Ultra running has an incredible amount of technique involved; practice makes perfect!
  • What makes a 100 mile run on a treadmill even possible.

Key Tips for New UltraRunners:

  • Always get the vertical in to match your race / event
  • Trekking poles are key to help you stay on your feet and running by the end of a 100 miler.
  • Descending is a critical skill that must be practiced.
  • A strong mental game is key to deal with fatigue, lack of sleep, weather and other variables.
