Kyle Whalum is an ultramarathoner and professional musician. He currently plays bass in the house band for the Kelly Clarkson Show and for Katy Perry, but in his free time he logs many miles on California trails. Over the past decade, Kyle has completed 16 ultramarathons and five 100-milers. He is also an ambassador for Path Projects, Ultimate Direction, and Superfeet. In Kyle’s most recent 100-miler, the Coldwater Rumble (in Arizona), he finished in under 24 hours which shattered his previous PR by over 3 hours. In this conversation, we candidly discuss mental health, spirituality, and the importance of movement in our daily lives. Kyle tells us about trail running while working as a touring musician and we take a moment to bond over some of our favorite music!
