The Drop Running Podcast E89 (Ray Zahab, Explorer & Ultrarunner)

Alright, we’ll get it out of the way up top — we had some audio issues this week. The intro might not sound as good as it usually does, but we still had a good time. We get into some nonsense, including whether or not “cotton tee” season exists in the running world. We also get into some thoughts from the Salomon and Ciele collab (hello, San Francisco) and chat about the Nike React Infinity 3.

After that, it’s time to kick your adventure drive into high gear. We got the chance to talk to Ray Zahab, who only decided to become an explorer at age 30. That’s right, it’s never too late. Since then, he’s covered more than 17,000km across the world’s deserts. He’s also been to some of the coldest places on the planet, including the South Pole. Zahab also talks about founding Impossible2Possible, a program that provides all-expense-paid learning programs to students around the world.

Give the audio podcast a listen below, or head further down for the video version of the intro.
