If you recall from last week, we discussed the Top 20 Mile High Endurance Podcast Episodes - check out https://www.owltail.com/podcasts/79844-mile-high-endurance-podcast Bill and I discussed this briefly last week, but we thought it would be good to share the #1 ranked MHE interview with you and thank you for the many years of listenership and loyalty. To thank you for staying engaged with us and taking the time to rank the show, we have "Going Long with Sam Long" this week. This is not the recent interview. This is going back to before everyone knew who Sam Long is, which is the say IM Chattanooga champion at 70.3 and 140.6.
Thanks to Sarah Thomas for being a part of our show last week. Sarah is first person on the planet to ever cross the English Channel four times non stop. If you missed it, go back and listen to episode #202.

This year he won a straight marathon at Napa Valley Marathon win in a time of 2:32:33. You backed that up with a Chatty 70.3 win. Then you had rough patch over the summer with a couple races.
