Mike Bell Loves the Community that Trail Running Offers

Mike Bell doesn’t mind running road races, but he has definitely found his home as a member of the trail running community.

Mike Bell and His Trail Buddies Post Run

There’s just something special about trail runners and the trail running community that Mike has been a part of, and I’m starting to which I could experience it as well.

Our chat today covered all kinds of topics from trail running, to heartbreak, to placing goals on hold but not giving up on them, to relocating and using the running community to help settle in to a new location. Here are some of the highlights of today’s chat.

  • Feeling at home as a member of the trail running community
  • Qualifying for Boston, having the rug pulled out from under him, and handling it way better than I would have
  • His transition from “normal” runner to “crazy/ultra” runner
  • His first 100 miler was as much mental as it was physical
  • Harkening back to the Ras Vaughan episode, and keeping the door open on distances beyond 100 miles
  • Running Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim in the Grand Canyon
