Runified Podcast

The Runified Podcast is where we come together and talk with runners about their stories. We believe that anyone who runs is a runner, no matter the pace or distance. We also believe that runners are more than just runners. With these beliefs, the Runified Podcast will tell stories about what makes runners who they are, beyond the training and racing. Our hope is that these stories will change the way runners of all abilities think about running, and motivate you to live your own story with endurance, strength, and joy.

Brett Rein currently lives in Durango, CO, is 28 years old, and is a substitute teacher and ski instructor. Although Brett has always been an athlete, including playing hockey and rugby, it wasn’t until college that he started running. Brett’s appreciation for running started when a buddy of his started training for the Navy SEALs, in which they would trail run for hours. During graduate school, he read the book The Last Lecture which inspired him to think about his own goals in life and he ended up signing up for the Death Race by Peak Races in 2014. Brett tells us about training for the Death Race, a race of unknowns and various events, including chopping wood, making a fire, hiking, four hours of ballet, and running up mountains. He also shares how he went from being tied for second place in that race to waking up in the hospital. Brett redeemed himself at his second Death Race and speaks about learning from failure. We also learn about Brett’s travels and other endurance races, including an attempt to swim across Lake Tahoe, running up a volcano, meditating for ten days, and paddle boarding hundreds of miles. Brett is currently training for the Bigfoot 200, a 206.5 mile ultramarathon. While training for this race Brett is undertaking a mental health awareness project called Miles From Ordinary in which he is helping people share their stories regarding mental health. Brett loves the community he has surrounded himself including The Endurance Society, as well as sponsors such as The Ultra House, SaunaSpace, and Garden of Life. Brett was introduced to the Runified podcast by Sasha Wolff, founder of Still I Run, who was on episode 28 of our podcast. Brett hopes to work with Sasha to raise awareness for mental health together.
