Brandon Yonke has done some things before graduating college that most college students, at least the ones I know, would never even dream of doing in their lifetimes.
Brandon has found a love for ultra running at such a young age, and he is already making a name for himself by wining and placing in many of the events that he has run. He’s also finished an ironman, run several marathons, and just recently completed his first 100-mile race.
And just recently, he came home from an running trip that is an experience he will likely never forget-running the Great Wall of China marathon.
We obviously got into his trip to China, the race itself, and a whole lot more during our conversation today. Here are some of the highlights of our chat:
- Getting started in the ultra running community by participating in a charity run for MS
- He started running in middle school, but didn’t run competitively in college though he may have had the opportunity
- Running the Great Wall of China marathon and the issues that presented during the race
- The demands of training for races while also being a full time college student
- Entertaining thoughts on trying to make a living as a runner after college
- The entire 100-mile race experience
- Switching to a vegetarian lifestyle
