One of best known ultrarunners ever definitely is still going big and going long ... he now does it across four different sports. Running, climbing, skiing, and cycling - but NO hiking! (listen in).
"I never thought or said, 'I'm not a runner anymore'; the space just opened up to do these other sports I'd always been interested in."
Once known as the "Apostle of Minimalism", Tony might now be considered one of the most thoughtful, experienced, and insightful participants and commentators on endurance sports.
"Ultimately you're just out there trying to develop and honest relationship with yourself. That's what your exploring. The setting is there to facilitate that."

Excellent episode, Buzz!
One question I would love to ask Tony is: when you combine biking with running and climbing, where do you leave in a safe place your bike??? Do you lock it somewhere? Any special suggestion?
