Episode 66 - How do you define yourself- Kilian Jornet

This week we speak to world champion ultrarunner and skimountaineer, Kilian Jornet. We discuss how and why he attempts these feats, the fastest known times for ascent and descent of of the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, Denali, and Mount Everest, and what goes through his mind in times of adversity.

We discuss his attributes- how is he able to recover so quickly from challenging events and races, and how he learns about physiology of athletes in an effort to improve his performance.
