In this episode, we once again ask the hard hitting questions: Do you like braids or twists for your bread? How big do you like your turkey? Do your wrap your meat in dough. Once the food talk subsides, Mathias and Doug quickly transition to responsibility of race directors during Covid, diving into a serious discussion about the outrage over the JFK50 continuing on, forgetting JFK’s words.

Happy Thanksgiving y’all. Thanks for listening, we truly appreciate it!
History is made on this episode, as the guys somehow start the show on topic and stay there nearly the entire time. Mathias and Doug chat about Ricky Gates’ Transamericana book and movie, look at the new Brooks shoe colors and explore Mathias’ Nike aversion. We know. We can’t believe that this was a serious show either.
We’ve all heard of the Smashing Pumpkins, but have you heard of Smashed potatoes? After a much needed cooking and baking conversation, Mathias and Doug dive deep into the pressing topics of the day. Will Mathias be able to overcome his lack of motivation for fun, will the two survive the political anger on Strava posts and what exactly is the Streisand effect. Keep your eyes and ears open for the Q for race directors forum and let us know if you need any turkey medals.
This week on Singletrack, Abram Dickerson sits down with Mathias and Doug to share the origins of Aspire Adventure Running. The company gives runners who want the challenge of distance running without the congestion and structure of a races, in some of the prettiest spots around. How’d it start? What do they have planned for 2021? All that and more will be answered.
Is it too early to say “gobble gobble?” Doug talks shuttles coming to Yellowstone, while Mathias wants to ask Rick Steves a question. Thanksgiving is discussed, as is the idea of running in the shape of a turkey. Cancel your holiday plans, plan an appetizer, wear a mask and get ready to use those Yaktrax.

The election is upon us, but so are new episodes of baking shows, so you know this has all the ingredients for a good show. Boston and London Marathons are discussed, before we dive into the future of virtual races in the coming year. We also wonder why we can’t pay for an all access pass to stream every Olympic event?
No tricks, treats or monsters mashing here. Just another solid, ground breaking episode. Mathias and Doug talk about about flu shots and then have a real, honest discussion on ways to stay positive and run through the darker days of fall and winter. There is warmth and light ahead. Keep seeking out those trails and gravel roads.
