Jill Homer on the FattyCast

01.19.2016 | 8:46 am

Picture this: you’re getting ready for a bike race. A thousand mile race, in Alaska. In February. The Iditarod Invitational…which is the same race that in prior years has just about claimed some of your toes.

Your response? Race it again, but this time do the thousand mile version.

That’s Jill Homer, and this is just the kind of thing she does. I talk with her about this race, blogging, photography at 20 below Zero, and much more, in this episode of the FattyCast, which you can subscribe to on iTunes or Stitcher, or just using my RSS Feed (http://fattycast.com/rss). And of course, you can just listen on this page or download it here:

Links and Notes and Strange Photographs

Of course, the most important note in this show is to follow Jill’s blog, which I’ve been a fan of for ten solid years now. Follow her on Twitter, too.

Of course, we spend a ton of time talking about her prep for this year’s Iditarod Invitational in this podcast, so be sure to bookmark the race site so you can follow her during the event itself.

And finally, because I said I would (for some reason), here are the photos I’ve posted of Jill as a Giant in previous posts.

Here’s one: 


And here’s the other. 


I’m sorry, Jill.

    I’ve gotten to know Jill and Beat the past couple of years when they are doing cold weather training in Fairbanks. They are just the nicest, fun couple who do incredible not normal adventures! I highly recommend listening to the podcast. I’m going to as soon as I get home tonight!

    Very cool Fatty…busy today but can’t wait to listen to it! Been following Jill ever since you FIRST talked about her…(was that 10 years ago? Seems like a long time…she still lived in Juneau I think…or was it even before that?).

    I listened to the podcast tonight while putting my time in on the trainer. Jill Homer is truly a giant of a woman. The women on the last three podcasts can serve as inspiration to all on what can be done when you set your mind to it.
