Endurance - Alex Hutchinson | Intangibles 027

By Steve Berg June 5, 2018

On This Episode:

Alex Hutchinson is an author and journalist in Toronto. His primary focus is the science of endurance and fitness. Alex has written for Outside, The Globe and Mail, and Canadian Running magazine. I’ve also covered technology for Popular Mechanics, and adventure travel for the New York Times, and was a Runner’s World columnist. He started out as a physicist, with a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge then a few years as a postdoctoral researcher with the U.S. National Security Agency, working on quantum computing and nanomechanics. During that time, he competed as a middle- and long-distance runner for the Canadian national team. He and I discuss his third book, published in February 2018. It’s called ENDURE: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance.
