Timothy Olson Interview–Low Carber & Western State Winner

In Episode 642 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,”  Jimmy Moore interviewed  an ultra runner and low-carb endurance athlete Timothy Allen Olson.  Over the last few years, he has switch to a low carb diet,while in Ketosis, with amazing results. 

In 2012 Olson not only won Western  States 100 in a time of 14:46:44, but smashed the course record by over 21 minutes on a course considered significantly slower than either of the courses used for the previous two course records.  Very interesting and worth checking out . . .

Here is another interview from iRunFar talking a little more about the race itself.

Here is a video from Olson of the actual race and finish . . .
