Mike Stefano joins us to talk about his experience with Alex Youngworth at World’s Toughest 2017. Mike pitted for Alex and did a mini-interview with Alex every time Alex finished a lap. Mike shares the audio from his podcast with us. It’s great to hear Alex progress from confident, to tired, to beaten up. If you’ve ran WTM before you’ve felt like Alex before. If you haven’t ran WTM, you get a little peak at what it’s like at 3:00 in the morning when you’re tired and cold and just want to die.
 
Be sure to check out the Mstefano Running podcast for more from Mike and his co-host Katelyn.

Allison Tai returns to the show to talk about her 2nd Place finish at World's Toughest Mudder 2017.

2012: Amelia Boone, 90 miles in 25:30
2017: ALLISON TAI, 85 MILES IN 24:40
2013: Deanna Blegg, 85 miles in 24:58
2016: Stefanie Bishop, 85 miles in 25:05

Allison's 2017 performance would have won WTM every year except 2017 and 2012.

Matt B. Davis and Will Hicks got together the morning after World’s Toughest 2017 and talked about the race. Matt and Will follow the sport of OCR as closely as any two men on the planet. They share their thoughts on the athletes and the race.
 
This is the first interview in the 50-something episodes of the podcast that has not been edited. It gives it a different feel than most of the other interviews on the podcast so far. Let us know what you think of it on our Facebook page: Facebook.com/worldstoughestpod.
 
Before we talk with Matt we talk about the recent positive drug test at OCRWC. We talk about what it means for the industry in general and Tough Mudder in particular. The short story: Tough Mudder needs to start drug testing in 2018.
 
If you haven’t joined our weekly email list, you should. You can find a link at Facebook.com/worldstoughestpod. Each week we talk about Tough Mudder, World’s Toughest Mudder or something closely related. Get on that.
