E49 Jess: Volume junkie and registered dietitian

E49 Jess: Volume junkie and registered dietitian

Jess Mullen is a seriously badass runner who is not afraid to tell you like it is. Jess started running ultras in 2007 and realized this was her place. She's a second half runner, so the longer the better. She's run countless trail races including over 46 x 100 milers, ending up on the podium multiple times. She's  also a registered dietitian and was kind enough to share some really valuable nutritional knowledge with us.
