Jason Hardrath is an extreme endurance athlete and a school P.E. teacher. He holds the fastest known time (or FKT in running language) for Mount McLoughlin. He made it to the 9,495-foot summit in just under an hour and three minutes. This extreme endurance athlete has also qualified for world-championships with the gruelling Ironman competitions. After a severe car-crash, he’s gone on to become an expert mountain-climber & he is currently in training for his next challenge – climbing some of The U.S.A.’s toughest peaks, back to back.
Transcript from ‘Fastest Man On Earth’ Podcast
Jason – I was just out chasing cool things I’d accumulated with rock climbing, mountaineering and orienteering skill sets. I’d also had a traumatic car accident that kind of took away my running for a while and when the running came back, I’d accumulated this skill set as part of my process of finding something to do with myself. When my running came back I was like, oh well now I’m going to run between these big mountain objectives and deep back-country things. So it made it really easy to go for fastest known times.
Chris – I think the thing we always need to remind ourselves is, some people are just really not very well and we have the same thing in the military. We call them Walter Mitties and they’re the these individuals that dress up with all the military regalia. One knows they’ve got the beret of some special forces unit and of course they’ve never served. It’s incredibly sad but I had one of these gentlemen on the podcast, who’s let’s use the word, recovered from this delusion. When it came down to it, he suffered some severe abuse as a child.
