    In this episode, I sat down with ultra athlete Zach Miller talking running and racing, coming back from injury and some of his overall life philosophy. The conversation picks up where we last saw Zach in his film as a caretaker at Barr Camp to a now, a life on the road in his converted bus traveling through North America. We cover our summer at Hardrock, uncertainty around coming back from his injury, the pros and cons of social media, the recent passing of his grandmother and her legacy and much more.

    Jerry Garcia | BYP 065

    US Forest Firefighter Jerry Garcia's path to becoming an ultrarunner was an improbable one. From growing up around gangs and violence in Los Angeles, finding trouble in the Navy and then getting mixed up in drugs and alcohol - even ending up homeless on the streets - it was hard to imagine a future around a healthy lifestyle of clean living and running. In today's episode with Hoka Ambassador and firefighter, we cover his incredible journey to becoming the athlete he is today, his tireless work battling blazes in the wilderness, overcoming drug addiction and so much more!

I came across BY’s YouTube channel less than a week ago. I needed some inspiration while foam rolling and then quickly (like 13 hour later), realized that he also has a podcast. So far, I’ve listened to three of his podcasts and what I really love is that he’s present and connected and thorough without inserting himself into every point or story the guest is sharing. He really knows how to let the guest be the guest. I’m exited to listen to more and to watch more of his YouTube content while foam rolling. Thanks!
