Publisher's Summary

You’re stressed, tired of answering the beeps on your phone and computer. Your kids get too much screen time. You don’t know where your next meal was grown or raised. One of the best forms of therapy is simple: Get out and stay out - as often and for as long as you can. In Both Feet on the Ground, Marshall Ulrich champions “disconnecting to reconnect”, urging you to spend time unplugged, eat food whose origins you understand, and push yourself to try something bold and personally compelling. He takes you back to bailing hay on the dairy farm of his youth, gasping for air at the top of Mount Everest, running through the searing heat of the Gobi desert, and riding the crest of huge ocean waves off Morocco. He’s learned that physical connections to the natural world are vital to health of body and soul. That only these outdoor experiences will put you through trials by fire, cleanse you in water, take your breath away, and ground you to the earth. Your adventures in natural places - from walking in the park or camping, to the more extreme isolation of a jungle or remote river - can put you back in touch with who you are; how resilient, resourceful, and hardy you can be.

Excellent!

Marshall’s experiences are amazing and he talks about them in a humble yet inspiring way. His talk about disconnecting from so much technology to enjoy nature and the grounding are a good reminder for us in today’s life.

Such an Adventure!

What a great book to listen to. I enjoyed every story and am fascinated by Marshall's adventures. He has certainly done it all. One of my favorite parts is when he talks about growing the food you eat. His love of Death Valley is so inspiring. If you have not read either of Marshall's books do so now!

Old school athlete

Ulrich is a proper old farmer that contrasts the often vegan oriented world of ultrarunners with his down to earth accounts.
