The Ultramarathon Mindset: Trail Talk

Trail Talk: Unsupported FKT - Shannon Mick

Episode Notes

Shannon Mick is a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in Telemental Health and is an Ultramarathoner.  She first got into running when she was dating her husband.  She thought running was stupid and would kind of get mad at him for not spending time with her and instead going for a run.  She ended up doing a 5k and finished second to last.  She is a competitive person and knew she could do better than that!  She has now done 50 miler and will be doing the Oil Creek 100 in October.  On this week’s podcast episode she talks about what she’s done to grow as a runner, the hallucinations she’s experienced and even accomplishing two FKTs.
