He has completed some of the most challenging ultramarathons on the planet, including the Last Annual Vol State 500k (314 mile) run, the 147-mile Marathon des Sables stage race in the Sahara Desert, and the Badwater 135 in Death Valley.

We dive into Nathan's time running Badwater and pick his brain regarding running and narcissism and is running an effective tool to battle depression and addiction.
