The word Stubborn has a negative connotation in many cases.  In this podcast, Devon Yanko and Andy Jones-Wilkins dive deep into the philosophy of stubborn.

  • Is it good for an unltrarunner to be stubborn?
  • How do you know when to give up?
  • Or is this a time to take your heels in and persevere? Where is the line?
  • Stubbornness can be a result of successful experiences but can be detrimental when you lose perspective.
