What's up golfer's everywhere! And runners if you're listening in. You just heard our special guest this week: non-golfer, cardiac education specialist by day, and elite ultra running champion by day and night, cause she runs so far, Kirstin Bull. Kirstin recently became the new Australian record holder in the 100km distance. She broke the previous record by running the equivalent of a 7:22 mile pace for...62 miles.
That's like running the better part of Long Island, or the LA coastline from Santa Monica to Newport Beach, or San Francisco to San Jose. And all she had to do was run about 1 second faster per mile than her predecessor. Another case where we find it's the little things done repeatedly over long distances or periods of time that separate the champion from the pack, or you from your next personal best result!
There is no doubt elite ultra running champion Kirstin Bull is an inspiration to many in her sport, but I know what you may be thinking. This is a golf-themed podcast. Aren't we supposed to be discussing Golf? Where in the world does Golf fit into the runner's story?
Here's the truth, golfers out there. Kirstin is a non-golfer...and it would probably stay that way permanently if it weren't for a unique style of play she recently discovered that actually complements the runner's lifestyle. It's called Speedgolf. Let's find out more about it. Are you ready? We do it fast, we make it fun, so turn it up and enjoy episode 20 with elite ultra running champion, Australian Kirstin Bull.
