With Ultramarathoner Courtney Dauwalter
Season 7, Episode 18

Ultramarathoner Courtney Dauwalter is no stranger to pushing her body and mind to the extreme — she’s done it time and again as she pursues ultra-endurance goals.

In this episode, Dauwalter shares what led her to embrace this mode of training and how she consistently pushes forward in these big efforts — even when it feels hard.
