Clare Gallagher joins us shortly after her stunning win at Western States 100, the most competitive 100 miler in the USA, following a trip to the Arctic National Refuge to work on climate change with David Roche (her coach extraordinaire) to talk about Western States, the lead up to the race including training and balancing life, activism, coaching, cultivating empathy and being kind to yourself. We delve into the importance of rest and recovery and why more training will not make you faster or stronger. Learn how Clare balances joy with awareness of the injustices of the world.
