Ultramarathon running is about taking on the challenge and finding out how far can you go. Barney Riesbeck is looking at life like an ultramarathon. In this episode we talk about the races he’s run, the challenges he’s created for himself and others, and the people that serve as an inspiration to keep going after epic goals for life.
He’s taken on some serious running challenges such as Across the Years and Race for the Ages. And he’s always up for new races to run and places to see.
And he’s come up with personal challenges such as the Farmer’s Carry Mile. This challenge is to see how fast you can do a mile carrying weight equal to your body weight.
Another weight-lifting challenge is the 100 Ton Club Challenge. In this case you set a goal to lift 100 tons of weight over the course of a day.
