This week we offer another interview recorded at the Spartan Podfest last September in Lake Tahoe. And this time we’ve got double trouble for you. Our latest guests are race directors, ultra runners and adventurers Johnny Waite and Luis Escobar. Johnny Waite is a race director for Spartan Race Canada, and a man of many great soundbytes, including the motto he lives by, which is “a lifetime of adventures of a lifetime.” Luis Escobar is a long-time runner, photographer, experienced race director possibly best known for the Born to Run Ultra Marathon Extravaganza near Santa Barbara, California and now co-director for the new Spartan Trail series launching this year. These guys took opposite paths to eventually find each other and build an enduring friendship over common threads. And they both have an amazing perspective on how to live your best Seasoned Athlete life.
