Backpacker Radio

Mar 20, 2019

In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, we're joined by Peter Downing, a modern day renaissance man.  We chat about his history as an ultra runner (including his four wins at the Buena Vista 50), his time in the Peace Corps, his career as a lawyer, and now, his latest undertaking, Suffer Better, a community of ultra runners whose mission is to give back.  It's a fun, freewheeling convo where Peter teaches us the ins and outs of the ultra world. 

We touch on what it's like to have cold feet before a thru-hike and we get into a lewd edition of Would You Rather.
