Tory and I answer listener questions and discuss her return to running after the pubis injury. She is back to structure and looking for big goals to focus on! (kidding).

It took about 6 marathons for Shelby to call herself a “runner.” She dabbled in sports in high school: lacrosse, swimming, sailing, a teeny bit of field hockey, she tried hard, but was pretty bad. Often the winner of the “spirit award” because of her positive attitude and poster making obsession. Once she finished university Shelby found the trails and her true calling, super long endurance. She's recently finished her first 100 miler and a successful FKT attempt at Backbone Trail.

He made a very rapid step up in distance after that, running his first ultramarathon when he was 19, and just a few years later he won a bronze medal in the Skyrunning World Championships in the Ultramarathon.
