Running Icon, Bart Yasso, as in “Yasso 800’s,” joins host Marni Salup on the Marni on the Move podcast this week. Bart Yasso was the Chief Run Officer at Runners World for 31 years. He developed Runners World’s race sponsorship program creating the opportunity for the magazine to work with over 7,000 races representing 4 million runners per year. Thanks to his dedication, great work and contribution to the world of running, he is in the Running USA Hall of Fame and Road Runners Club of America Distance Hall of Fame. He is the author of two books, My Life on the Run and Race Everything. Bart’s race roster is beyond impressive from running, cycling, and triathlon starting with Badwater, a 146 mile Ultramarathon. He has completed marathons on all seven continents, including the Mount Kilimanjaro and Antarctica marathons, won the 1987 U.S. National Biathlon Long Course Championship and, in 1998, won the Smoky Mountain Marathon. He has completed five Ironman races and cycled, unsupported, across the country twice. As you can imagine, Bart has lots of great tips and advice, mantras, and a winning mindset which he shares in the episode. We talk about where his adventure with running began, his career, and his journey cycling across America.
