I’ve become interested in hearing from people who are the best in the world in other sports recently, so I’ve been actively seeking out podcasts with people who are the best of the best in what they do. I kept hearing references to an interview Joe Rogan did with an ultramarathoner named Courtney Dauwalter on his podcast. She won a race called the Moab 240, which is a 238 mile foot race through Moab Utah. She won the overall by something ridiculious like 11 hours or something.
Later in the interview, Joe asks her about nutrition, and much to my surprise, she doesn’t have a crazy diet, she said that she eats nachos, candy, and beer.
She’s a total outlier. It’s amazing, but just because she does it, doesn’t mean that I can keep eating nachos, candy, and beer and do what she does.
