Show Notes

In Episode 82 of The Real Food Reel we are joined by ultra runner Zach Bitter. In 2015, Zach broke the U.S. 100-mile record, running a very tidy 11:40:55. That’s the equivalent of nearly four straight 3:03 marathons AND it was 402 laps on a 400m track! Today on the show Zach and I discuss his running history, how fat adaptation has changed his trajectory as a runner, and how the FASTER study is changing the game.
