Manage episode 287727097 series 2752326
Beverley Anderson-Abbs is a recent winner of the Jed Smith 50-miler in Sacramento, CA. After suffering from overtraining syndrome and briefly being unable to even walk, Bev rebounded to finish with an American and Canadian age group record. New URM host Scotty Sandow sits down with Bev to discuss her experience running The Last Annual Heart of the South Road Race in Tennessee (and gourmet gas station food) and how she recovered from being injured prior to Jed Smith. As a competitive ultrarunner in her 50s with over 180 ultra finishes under her belt, Bev has taken on some of the most difficult races in North America. She offers up advice for aging runners and how to take care of your body while training for long distances.
Also, Scotty discusses the March issue of UltraRunning Magazine with editor Amy Clark.
