Franklin Baker began running with his dad, Bill Baker after years of watching and crewing him at Ultra events. Making a quick jump from 5k's to his first 50k in 2007, Franklin quickly moved to the front of the pack and found himself running away with his second Ultra win of 2015 at the Georgia Jewel 50 Miler.
"I enjoy seeing just how far I can push my body and enjoy reaping the benefits of my physical hard work"
In addition to working fulltime, Franklin balances his love of running by sharing time out on the trail with his wife Jenny and his kids. Franklin is a perfect example of what Grounded Running is all about and we look forward to watching Franklin's Ultra Running career and wish him the best of luck with everything that he does!
Check out his great interview filled with training, nutrition and motivational tips.
