In this episode of I’ll Have Another, we are talking Ultra Running and adventure. I have a group of friends taking on Rim to Rim to Rim this week and they posted a TedX Talk of my guest for today’s show Krissy Moehl. Krissy has completed R2R2R really fast, so we were intrigued to her her talk. I rarely sit down and watch any sort of on-line video, but I watched this video completely intrigued and immediately emailed her to see if she’d chat with me for the show!
Krissy is an Ultra Trail Running, a coach, an author and a race director. In seventeen years of Ultrarunning Krissy has toed the line to over 100 races, including 55 female wins, 2 outright wins and just 2 DNFs.

In this episode, Krissy talks about the important factors that make up a successful race for her- outside of just being physically prepared. She talks about a few of her many adventures in depth- like having the fastest known time around the Lake Tahoe Trail. We talk about how being competitive is great, but working with others is a big part of that. Krissy is humble and kind and the perfect example of what the sport of Ultra Running is all about.
