Podcast: Download  (Duration: 41:46 – 20 MB)

Liza Howard and Chris Russell put together a great interview with Jay Danek on his recent book, Got to Live, which shares Jay’s struggles after the loss of his father and then unexpectedly turns to running to begin the healing process.

And run Jay did – 923 straight days!

Also included is a great bonus story on Jay’s 57 mile course record at Nueces. Got to love it! 🙂
