61 – Escape from Alcatraz – Torsten Lippoldt

This episode I talk with Torsten who recently raced at the Escape from Alcatraz.  He talks about his training leading up to and through the race.  We also talk about some of the fun things the race organizers do to insure this is a great race and something fun to remember.  Somethings he mentions about the race are the sand ladder, transitions, nutrition plans, previous year’s race and much more.
