Life Lessons from Long Runs
Elite adventure runner, Will Laughlin, has run thousands of miles in dozens of places around the world, accumulating firsts, records, and–most importantly–stories along the way.
Will recently ran across Costa Rica from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, covering 260 jungle miles and 80,000 feet of elevation in 81 hours. That’s ten marathons and three Mount Everest’s in three and a half days. Last summer, Will and fellow adventurer, Ray Zahab, set another record in Death Valley, running the 180 mile length of the park entirely off-road in the middle of July. Air temperatures hovered at around 130 degrees during the day with ground temperature readings of 185 degrees.
While running, Will has hallucinated, stepped on rattlesnakes, evaded Taliban snipers, sleep-run, lost the tip of his nose somewhere in the Yukon (it was -65 degrees), stumbled on meth labs, and nearly cooked to death (twice). When asked why he does these extreme runs, Will’s stock response is “because they’re fun,” though he admits that this is not a satisfying answer.
When not running, Will likes to surf, spearfish, write, and spend time with his wife Beth and dog Liam. Will owns a brand consultancy and is in the process of launching a peanut butter company.
In his presentation, Beef Popsicles, Will discusses life lessons he has learned from running great distances under extreme conditions.
The fun starts at 6:30pm and the presentation starts at 7pm, don’t be late!
