Episode 187 - Lori Michener

75 minutes

Peter and Bryan welcome ultrarunner and ultrawinner Lori Michener to the WGBH Studio at the Boston Public Library. Lori talks about running her first 100-mile race (the Florida Keys 100), how she ended up running THREE 100-mile races last year, and what she's doing to train for her next challenge—the Badwater 135. She also describes how she managed to impress her 16-year-old son, the charity she has supported for (about to be) 10 Boston Marathons, and what it takes to do so much training while also working as a college professor and parenting. (Hint: It involves a Paul.) Then, it's time for questions from the live audience about everything from running rituals and superstitions to how to properly fold socks. #MarieKondoisright
