Archive - Sally McRae | Running 507 Miles In 81 Days | Choose Strong
Welcome back to the podcast for her second time, elite runner and BPN athlete: Sally McRae!
After completing the Choose Strong Project, Sally sits down with Nick to bond over their love for weight training and how their approach to fitness has evolved over the years. Sally reflects on her early career when many viewed strength training as unnecessary for runners and the unique challenges, she faced in pushing back against that notion as a performance athlete.
Sally passionately speaks to the perspective that life is more about how we make others feel than simply our physical appearance. This episode goes beyond just recognizing the accolades of human performance but really emphasizes the commonalities we all have as humans, whether in parenthood, insecurities, or how to be strong for life.
“Let’s talk about what we’re doing and not what we look like.” - Sally
The Choose Strong Project was an endurance-based event in which she ran 507 miles over the course of 81 days, during 5 separate races. She created this project in honor of her late mother, running 1 mile for every month of her mother’s life. For this project Sally ran Bad Water 135, Angles Crest 100, Leadville 100, Wildstrubel 100k, and a double summit of Mt. Whitney.
