Greg and Jessica sat down with Manouch Shirvanioun while Mike was on course at the Cocadona 250 race in Arizona. Manouch is an ultrarunning fixture in the Auburn area and has a great resumé of race finishes at all distances including Western States in 2018.
He is currently training for another Western States attempt in June, and he's a new age category. We talked about his childhood in Iran, how beer got him into running, his mentors along the way as he discovered ultrarunning, his volunteer work with the Canyon Keepers in the Auburn area and much, much more! Join us for this motivating and insightful interview with Manouch.
