An Interview With Melanie Owen About Her Upcoming Badwater 135 - Episode 57

June 27, 2018

What you'll hear on this episode:

 

Melanie Owen had a goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon. Frustrated by continually coming up just short, she wondered if she could run longer distances. She not only discovered she could run over a 100 miles at a time, she discovered she was pretty good at it. Now, she's one of only 33 women who will be lining up to run this year's prestigious ultra marathon, The Badwater 135. Melanie talks about her friend and coach Harvey Lewis, a previous Badwater champion, and how Harvey has helped her get ready for her own Badwater experience. 

Melanie talks about the inspiration her dad has been in her life. She talks about one day conquering that Boston Marathon goal. And much more in our conversation. 

 

Introduction and closing song: One Flame to Burn (Prospect 7)
