Pete Kostelnick joins the UR inner sanctum to talk about his next adventure: running 50 miles in all 50 states in 50 days. Pete’s no stranger to monumental endurance feats – he’s the current World Record holder for the fastest coast-to-coast crossing of the United States by foot. He ran from San Francisco to New York City in 42 days, 6 hours and 30 minutes. He is also a two-time Badwater 135 champion and is the fifth-fastest North American of all-time at the 24-hour event, covering 163.5 miles (an average pace of 8:48 per mile). Not to be outdone, he also ran from Alaska to Key West, Florida self-supported. Pete also gives us a sneak peek at his epic quest later this year. Stay tuned after Pete’s interview for our “What’s the Issue” segment with UltraRunning Magazine editor, Amy Clark.
