Are you guys ready to be inspired? My guest this week, Sierra Swofford, has set herself a truly monumental goal. I was so blown away by the sheer audacity of her goal that I just had to get her on the podcast to pick her brain about how she’s getting her mind and body right for this one.
Sierra is planning to run a 36-hour 100-mile race that takes place in just 18 months. Her journey so far has been incredible enough, having lost 140 pounds, finishing races, and so much more. But this challenge is going to require something else. And she’s here today to share what that is.
Tune in this week to discover why Sierra has decided that now is the time she wants to run 100 miles. Sierra is sharing how she is preparing for this challenge, both mentally and physically, and she has the perfect advice to share with anyone wanting to undertake a similar challenge for themselves. So whether your next goal is 5K or 100 miles, she has something for everyone.
