About This Episode
Devon Yanko is a trail, road and ultra runner who has been racing competitively in ultras and marathons around the world since 2005. She sort of took a break from elite running in 2012 to focus on the start of M.H. Bread and Butter, a bakery cafe she co-owns with her husband in San Anselmo, CA, but returned to the elite level in 2015 with an impressive win at the Javelina 100, a 3rd place at Western States in 2016, a top 10 at the Comrades Marathon in South Africa earlier this year and most recent victory at the Leadville 100.
In this interview we talk about:
– Devon’s sporting background
– Her progression in (ultra) trailrunning
– How she picks her races
– Her Leadville 100 win
