Mark Schultz vs. Ed Banach in 1982

On Saturday morning, January 6, 2018, Erin and I participated in the Topeka to Auburn Practice Run with the Sunflower Striders Running Club.  I did not want the full 13.1 miles yet, as the race is in two weeks, but I did want to get 10 miles in. Erin got in a little over 9.

During the run, I listened to Mark Schultz be interviewed by Ryan Ford, the host of The Grappling Center Podcast.  Mark Schultz was played by Channing Tatum in the movie Foxcatcher, which tells the story that led up to the tragic murder of Mark’s brother David.

The podcast is very interesting, and worth listening to, but for a super fascinating highlight use the link above to listen from 37:00 to around 41:45 for Mark’s description of the match with Ed Banach.  Listen all the way to 44:10 for post analysis of the match and the encouragement to watch the match itself, which I’ve put below.

Although you could watch the match without listening to Mark’s description, you won’t get as much out of it, so listen first!  I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I did.
