I'm an online ultrarunning coach (NASM and USATF certified), journalist (irunfar, Ultrarunning Magazine and others), Director of the US Skyrunner Series and runner for Altra Running who has represented England. I've been ultra running since 2005 and have run over 200 ultras and marathons in 30 countries globally in every type of weather and on all terrains. I love multi-day races, road marathons, trail ultras and have been lucky enough to run in several mountain ranges, including the Himalayas, Andes, Rockies and European Alps. I've also finished in the top 10 at Western States 100 for the past five consecutive years and have the fastest time for a trail 100-miler in North America - 12h44m at Rocky Raccoon. http://www.sharmanultra.com/
