Carolyn Coffin and Kim Senechal

Dave Proctor is a Canadian running legend, and is considered one of the top 10 ultramarathon runners in the world.  He is a 40 year old father of three from Okotoks AB, a massage therapist, and the Canadian record holder for the 24, 48 and 72 hour continuous run events. He has also held world records for the furthest distance run on a treadmill in 12 and 24 hours (260.4kms) as well as the fastest 100 mile time of 12:32.  In 2018 he founded Outrun Rare, and attempted to run across Canada in record time to raise funds for the Rare Disease Foundation, something he plans to reattempt in 2021. Most recently Dave has been making a name for himself with backyard ultras.  He placed 3rd at the 2019 Big’s Backyard Ultra in Tennessee where he ran 52 yards for a total of 348.9km. 

If you haven’t noticed already, runners are super cool people and even the most elite among us are just genuinely nice, solid people. Dave is no exception, and in this episode you will hear some of the wisdom he’s gained over the years not only about running, but about life. This conversation is not only exciting and inspiring, but also brutally honest and real.
