Episode 5: Craig Thornley, Western States 100 Race Director

Apparently bloody nipples don't hurt him. 

Many people know of Craig from being the race director of the Western States 100. But many don't know that he is also the co founder of the Waldo 100k, an accomplished rock climber, has an insane one mile speed record, and is running in the WS100 this year as well as racing in it. We had a lot of fun picking his brain about the event history, growth, challenges and more, plus had some fun learning who Mr. Lord Balls is and where in the world that name came from. You might even learn something about bloody nipples in this one.
