#044 – I love talking to Ultra Runners. They have such a determination and grit that is hard to describe. My guest this week, Michael Whiteside, is someone who I would describe as someone with both grit and determination.
Michael is from my home state of Utah and is fairly new on the Ultra Running scene. Michael has dealt with a tough past, but uses ultra running as another way to battle past addictions and self-doubt. It was fun talking to Michael about the beauty he sees when he runs and the community of trail runners that make up such a tight knit group. I also love how much Michael’s family and in-laws mean to him and the support they give him.
This episode was inspiring and entertaining. I really loved getting to know who Michael is a person. To follow along a little closer to Michael give him a follow on Instagram @michael_dean82 .
