“We developed an entirely new system. New to me in blind running, in blind guidance. It turned out to be much more easy, efficient, and better for me running altogether.”

Aaron Hale is a former EOD technician in the Army who lost his eyesight and a portion of his hearing from an IED explosion in 2011. Join Luis and his co-host Lisa Smith-Batchen as Aaron details his experience running Badwater 135, running with guides, running three separate 100 milers to qualify, his breakdown moment during the run, and his reflective moments after the race.
