2 Questions: Michele Yates


Michele was the 2013 Female Ultrarunner of the Year. She won the North Face Endurance Challenge 50 Mile Championship, Run Rabbit Run 100, Indiana 100, Bandera 100k and a few others all in last year. And to perfectly segway from my last guest, listen to her interview on Ultra Runner Podcast.

Knowing all that you know now, what would you tell your young self that was new to ultras?

Take Salt tabs and/or a combo of salt tabs and Gu Gels 300mg sodium per
hour. Drink only water. Eat healthy..and “you have food allergies..stay
away from dairy and gluten 🙂 ” Be sure to look up The Simply Bar-Lemon
Coconut Flavor ..YOU WILL LOVE THEM!

What piece of advice would you give to someone who is training for their first 100 miler?

Decide you are going to do it, then do it..regardless of anything that
happens. Be comfortable being uncomfortable. Things will go wrong-
prepare the best you can..and suck it up.
