092 Michele Yates: Elite Ultra runner and Ridiculously Ambitious race director.
There was a feeling during the show today that our guest was capable of anything. She was the Ultrarunner of the Year in 2013, a fitness model, and a successful road runner before that. Heck, she even ran a 50k while pregnant this year. She trains other runners and athletes and is also a race director in Colorado. She is hosting the first ever Colorado 200, a 200 mile trail race, it’s ambitious. For her success athletically she is still humble, and unique, and there are tons of lessons in today’s Athlete On Fire show!
“Never settle in a race and never settle in life.”
