Coaching Endurance UltraRunning 2010 Part 1


There is nothing quite like a video set to good music to get one excited about lacing them up and heading out. For trails and ultras, one of the best at inspiring me is Matt Hart, endurance athlete and coach. "Originally from the East Coast, Matt Hart made the move to Seattle in 1998 to work for Microsoft Corp.  After seven years as a software test engineer, coaching, ultra distance racing and training had slowly taken over his life.  In December of 2005 Matt left his desk job to pursue a career in coaching and athletics." Check out his blog, Coaching Endurance, as well as his services.

  1. Great video Kovas! It makes me want to suck it up and try some challenging trail running. I love how beautiful this course was:) I would be in heaven running in views like that!

    Take care!

  2. Maybe we can get Julie to run the 50 with us :).

    Notice those guys all by themselves on the trail? That'd be me, cuz I'd be way behind everyone, and what does that scream?? LOST. Eaten by a mountain lion, my children motherless.

    And you wonder why I'm so freaked about my speed right now!!

    Ok, I'm going to hit the trails tomorrow, thanks for the subtle push. Have a blast with your new group tomorrow, too! I'm still jealous.

  3. OK, after this video and my coach talking about it I am going trail running after 70.3 IMCA. Can't risk tripping over a tree root prior to that.

    If you are, add me to the list - I want some new arm warmers. Thanks :)

  7. Those trails always look awesome when you show them. I cant even imagine at this point running in those stream soaked shoes, just slogging and slogging. That is some mental toughness there.

  8. That video was rad. Amazing scenary. I can't wait for you to do your ultra Kovas. And, I bet Julie could easily do an Ultra with you guys - she is a Stud.
