Scott Jurek is an ultramarathon legend and arguably one of the greatest runners of all time. Mired in semi-retirement from professional racing and late career stagnation, he set his sights on the Appalachian Trail speed record in 2015. Scott and his wife Jenny approached this project as relative novices and their collaborative narrative account, North, tells the amazing story of their 46-day, 2,189-mile AT adventure. The book is about so much more than running, and in this conversation we interrogate some of those larger topics – relationships, communication, loss, triumph and community
This week’s “A New Angle,” produced by marketing University of Montana Professor Justin Angle, features a conversation with UM head football coach Bobby Hauck. They pull the lens back a bit and talk about some of the larger issues facing UM, Grizzly football and the sport in general. Coach Hauck’s passion for football and what it can do for young men is on display in this engaging conversation.
