  • I am doing in a race in couple of weeks that I wasn't planning on doing and feel underprepared, what should I do? (00:00)
  • I am getting black toenails, is this normal for runners? (06:51)
  • I've noticed that you don't seem to wear a heart rate monitor (chest strap) while you're running. What are your thoughts on HR-based ultra training? (13:00)
  • I always have a high heart rate no matter how fast or slow I run - around 180, or up to 200 for speedy sessions. I have tried running super slow and it doesn’t make a difference. Is my high heart rate an issue? (14:24)
