    Stephanie Case-Human Rights Activist, Advocate for Women in Ultrarunning, and Badass Trail Runner | Koopcast Episode 152

    Stephanie Case is a well-known figure in trail/ultra running, not just for her success in crazy, tough races (Tor de Glaciers, Hardrock, The Barkley Marathons), but for her outspokenness about women’s rights. Stephanie spearheads tough conversations concerning inclusivity for women in our sport- pregnancy deferrals, quotas for women in races/lotteries, and more. If she couldn’t be any more admirable, Steph also works in conflict zones as a Human Rights Advocate.

Strength Training

So many running podcasts have done episodes on strength training and trust me I’ve listened to all of them. Koopcast’s latest two part series on strength training was THE BEST, most comprehensive and easy to follow summary I’ve heard on the topic. Major kudos!
