Ep. 126 – Tyler Tomasello – Coaching Female Ultra Runners in Afghanistan
Tyler Tomasello has lived a couple lives in his time on this planet. At a young age, he was a professional snowboard competitor. After his competitive days were done he turned to Ultra Running and has competed in races around the world. A few years ago he picked up his camera and has been exploring the world of photojournalism ever since.
He has combined his love of nature, people, and the outdoors into his work. He often tells the stories of the people who are normally missed by mainstream media. Whether he is traveling to Miami to document a hurricane first hand or to Afghanistan to showcase female ultra runners. Tyler is constantly looking for the stories that not many are willing to tell.
He joins the podcast to talk about his experience in Afghanistan and how he went to tell the story of a group of local female ultra runners and ended up coaching the women. Tyler tells of a different Afghanistan, one which is normally missed in mainstream media.
Tyler’s work recently took him to Sittwe, Rakhine, and Myanmar on another project then directly after that he headed to Bangladesh. In his words “heading to Cox’s Bazar to document and tell the other side of the story.” Tyler is constantly on the move and it was an honor and privilege to get to sit down with him and let him tell some of his story and the story of the women he worked with in Afghanistan.
