Doug and Mathias discuss how to venture into the outdoors in a safe manner and come up with a few rules on how to enjoy the outdoors in these crazy times we live in. They celebrate the ingenious backyard projects and our endless yearning for adventure.
The mountain will wait for us, but will we be patient to wait for them?
We’ve started the next 100 episodes with a special SingleTrack, after dark. What was different? We added drinks and recorded after the sun set. Mathias ran a 5k around his house, which led us to a conversation about how to interact with the trail running community during Covid-19. We chat about Unbreakable: the Western States 100 feature film, hear about Doug getting back to running after an injury and finally get to incredible recipes to make.
For this 100th episode, amidst a global pandemic Doug and Mathias don’t have much to celebrate. Trail races are cancelled all over the world, people are discouraged to congregate and Mathias is slowly running out of flour…
But, we still have each other, we still have adventures out our back door, we still have daylights,
and cups of coffee…
The recent search and rescue event out at the Duckabush on the Olympic Peninsula make your favorite podcasters re-up the conversation about safety in the backcountry. Do not be complacent. Go prepared, check things twice, bring your stuff and tell people where you’re going.
Also, running shoes are purchased, orientation runs are organized, and jokes are made about tiny houses.
Hey, Doug and Mathias got to run together, in real life, that was fun, and it was at Kaiser.
The team discusses all the new 100 mile races that are popping up in the PNW and Mathias reviews the Nathan ExoDraw handheld from last week in more details.
The first orientation run at Kaiser is announced. All the fun in the neighborhood!
It’s product review time here in the Singletrack studios. Doug and Mathias talk about the new Biolite headlamps, a Teton Sports backpacks, Boca Gear hats, and Nathan hydration vests. Since we’re already reviewing stuff, of course we have to talk about that NYT article about Jim Wamsley too.
Oh, and don’t forget socks, so many awesome, socks! All links to products below!
