On today’s show, I’m going a few easy miles with Nora Bird.
When Nora got into running, she definitely jumped into the deep end! We talked about her foray into our sport, and how she quickly went from training for her first half marathon to running her first ultra. And in addition to quickly increasing her race distances, she did it all while life was going crazy at the same time.
We also talked about her experience running Boston in 2013 and it’s clear that those wounds are still real for her. Thankfully she wasn’t injured physically when the bombs went off, but the emotional wounds are still healing.
Here are some of the highlights from my chat with Nora Bird.
- The reasons she prefers road ultras over trails
- Pretty much hooked on running from the start
- Her experience with running Boston in 2013
- The logistical challenges of big races
- Entering the lottery for Leadville, because why not?
- A passion for baking, but doesn’t have a big sweet tooth
- Working with Girls on the Run
- Looking forward to the future
