TT097: 100 Mile Run, Addicted To Intensity, How the Apple Watch Changed My Life

Hillary Spires returns to the show to talk about her preparation for a 100 mile/160km run she completed in Canada in September.  She gave herself a 24 hour time limit and she talks about Going for 100 miles in 24 hoursthe challenges she endured along the way and during the run.  She limited her total training and used intensity to maximize her training time.  Along the way she raised $11,000 for charity.

After Hillary’s interview I talk about how the Apple Watch changed my life for the better.
