Episode 9: Journey to Javelina Jundred with Jim Doyle
“I want to put fear back into my running.”
In this episode of Ultra Ordinary Running Podcast, we have an interview with LA-based runner and musician, Jim Doyle. Jim went for an impromptu 2 mile run in 2002, and from there, he started running marathons, then ultras, and finally Javelina Jundred in October 2015. Join us as we talk to Jim about his running journey and gain insight from him about his experience at Javelina Jundred.
We truly loved getting this chance to talk to Jim, and we had so much fun doing this interview. Jim’s story is incredibly inspiring, and we can’t wait to run 100 miles with him next October, when he heads back to JJ100 again. Thanks so much for being on the show Jim! We hope you’ll be a return guest on UOR someday soon.
In this episode of Ultra Ordinary Running Podcast, we have compiled a list of What Not To Do during an ultra or trail race. Every race is an opportunity to learn, and we’re here to share what we’ve learned with you. Join us as we discuss running/walking, trail etiquette, wardrobe decisions, and more.
As always, thanks for listening, and feel free to send us your own What Not To Do tips. We love hearing from you!
In this episode of Ultra Ordinary Running Podcast, we talk about possible stress fractures, posterior shin splits, ankle sprains, and more.
Injuries are something nearly every runner deals with at some point or another. The key is knowing when you are experiencing a discomfort you can push through, and when you’ve got pain you can’t ignore. We’re here to share our stories about injuries we’ve had, how we got through them, and what we’ve learned.
We’ve got a lot of websites for you. Thanks for listening!
In this episode of Ultra Ordinary Running Podcast, we get together to talk about Post Ultra Blues. Yes, it’s a thing! But it’s a thing we haven’t heard other ultra runners talk about all that often. After the big event, it can be common to feel a let down or sadness as you struggle to get back to your “ordinary” life or look for your next adventure. We think that talking about it helps.
Thanks for listening! We had some technical difficulties in recording this episode (a spotty internet connection messed up the sound quality and interrupted our conversation in a few places), and we appreciate your patience.
Episode 5: San Diego 50 Mile Race Recap. "Can I cuss here?"
Here it is, Christina’s San Diego 50 Mile Race Recap! Find out if she encountered any coyotes (or other wildlife) on the trail and how her experience compared to the first time she ran this race in 2015.
Thanks to all our listeners for your encouragement and support! And a huge congratulations to Christina on your fantastic finish.
In this episode of Ultra Ordinary Running Podcast, the three of us are at different stages in our training. Melissa is recovering from Across The Years, Angela is putting in the miles and focusing on strength and core work, and Christina is tapering for her upcoming 50 miler.
Join us as we chat about what we’ve been up to during the past week, and if you are a coyote expert, please drop us a line to let us know once and for all what to do when we see or hear coyotes on trail, and also: what is the proper pronunciation of “coyote.”
In this episode of Ultra Ordinary Running Podcast, we describe the origin of this project a little more in depth (which you can also read about on Melissa’s blog), we briefly discuss winning a date with Billy Yang, we offer some strategies for running through the holidays (or not), and we share our Christmas wish lists.
Have a very merry holiday season! We’ll be back next time with a recap from Rob and Melissa’s adventures at Across the Years.
