Amy Albu is an ultra verteran. Despite her youthful age, Amy has been running for 21 years and has 16 Mountain Masochist finishes to her name, including a recent 4th place in 2015. She is also the women’s leader in the Beast Series and one race away from setting a new women’s record.
It is hard to believe, but in February 2014, she snapped her lower leg and ankle during a race. We talk to Amy about her injury, surgery, recovery and return to running at an elite level.
Andy Jones-Wilkins is the executive producer and Tap Room host for this podcast. He compares his diagnosed end-stage arthritis and current recovery from hip socket resurfacing surgery.
