New Podcast all about the Mount Everest Marathon recap with Holly Zimmerman, author of Ultra Marathon Mom. We’re going over all the logistics, what she ate, the bathroom situation and more! And I’m sharing some random thoughts on that documentary I always talk about and my love language.


I first talked to Holly about her book in podcast episode 80. A few days after that interview she was about to head to Mount Everest to run a marathon and I asked her about her training and how she was getting ready for that race. You don’t have to listen to that episode for this one to make sense but it’s a super interesting chat about running all over the world. I ask her everything from what she ate to the bathroom situation to what shoes she wore to run a race on the top of a treacherous mountain?!!

Mount Everest Marathon Recap Podcast with Holly Zimmermann

Mount Everest Marathon Recap Podcast with Holly Zimmermann – author of Ultra Marathon Mom. I first talked to Holly about her book in podcast episode 80. 

A few days after that interview she was about to head to Mount Everest to run a marathon and I asked her about her training and how she was getting ready for that race. She kindly agreed to come back to the show to share how it went. So I get to live vicariously through her adventure and it’s so interesting (almost interesting enough to make me want to do it?).
