Erika Hoagland – 2019 Rio Del Lago 100 winner/course record holder


In our very first episode, we talk with Erika Hoagland – an amazingly talented ultrarunner and author of the column, I Am an Ultrarunner in URM. We sit down to chat about her race plans (pre-COVID), training for 100-milers while being a mom, the experience of fastpacking around Lake Tahoe on her honeymoon, and what (and where) she hopes to run in the future.

Erika has some awesome stories from the trail and offers advice for those looking to train for a 100-miler.

Please note: this episode was recorded prior to some late summer and fall race cancellations.

    Was great to hear from Wonder Woman. Her stories left a broad smile on my face … and reminded me that she still has a number of crewing chits she has to call on.
