Podcast: Conversations with Harvey Lewis III on Running, Plant Based Eating, and Motivation.

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.

 This podcast features Harvey Lewis III, a very accomplished ultra runner, plant based eater and inspirational man. 

He has run the Badwater 135 mile ultra 10 times winning the race in 2014 and 2021.  He is a schoolteacher by day and has been commuting to work under human power for over 6 years. It is his goal to spread the word of health through plant based nutrition and running.   

We discuss his training and mental preparation as well as his plant based philosophy.  I was very interested in his metabolism, and how he can absorb enough calories to maintain his running.  How does he run 354 miles and then return to running in just a few days without soreness or injury?  What is his “why” for running so long?  We tackle these and many more topics today.  I hope you enjoy my chat with Harvey.
