Episode 004: Madison Hart - Running 100 Miles With A Young Hart

Chiropractic Broomfield CO Madison Hart Podcast

Maddie is the youngest person to win the Tahoe Rim 100 Trail Trace.

A note from Maddie: I am a young up-and-coming ultra-runner. I love exploring the world around me on my own two feet, as well as all the people I meet along the way. I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado but have lived for the past few years in Gunnison, Colorado while I was a student at Western Colorado University to study Environmental Sustainability. I found running during my first year of college and have been running ever since. I love ultra-running because not only is it physically difficult, but it also a game of mental toughness.

Ultra running is about pushing your mind and body further. These lessons can be applied to life because most of us live long lives, it is the ultimate endurance event we will ever do. Here are the highlights from my conversation with Maddie Hart, young rising ultra runner. Check out this podcast from a Broomfield chiropractor!

In Maddie’s words, “I have a lot to learn about ultrarunning, but from what I have accomplished already, I have learned some valuable lessons about myself and the world we live in.” In summary, whether you are a runner or not, Maddie leaves us with these two key pieces of advice. 1) trust your training and 2) make sure you pay attention to fueling. What is something you can train for, a goal for work, or an actual physical goal to run, go further, or get stronger? Maddie found running in the midst of a transition in her life. We are all in transition at this time in history, so what is calling you to take action on? Maddie showed us how she went the distance with training, trust, and fueling. I challenge you to train, trust and fuel your way to the next level in your life.
