136: Loren Newman on Developing Mental Strength in Running

“In life, almost more than anything else, I like the feeling of getting to the start line or getting somewhere and having no idea of what’s going to come next. And that feeling of apprehensive anticipation, where you know that you have the skills to deal with what’s going to come, but you don’t know what its going to be.”

Loren explains how he discovered his strength in longer distance trail running after not making the team at Stanford University.

Loren provides insight on how he overcomes the mental challenges of running. Lastly, Loren recounts his Western States experience and the lessons he learned.
