Race directors Jeff Fullmer and Jeremy Smith join us for a special episodes previewing the Palisades Ultra Trail Series in the beautiful and rugged Idaho/Wyoming backcountry near Grand Teton National Park. Located right in their backyard, in wild grizzly bear country, the team has created an unforgettable race weekend. Racers will run along sweet single track through beautiful wildflower meadows and across many refreshing streams. Your summer plans just included a road trip. Doug will be your guide!
On this very special episode we’re joined by Maria Dalzot, registered dietitian and mountain runner from Bellingham, Washington.
She just recently returned from competing at the NACAC Mountain Running Championships in Tepatitlán, Mexico and ran OCC at UTMB this summer. And yet, you will never guess what we’re actually talking about: food! Maria’s approach to eating healthy is freeing and inspiring. This show is soul food for your ears.
Heroine of the hour, Maggie Guterl, joins us to share her incredible feat of taking first overall at last week’s Big Backyard Ultra, literally in Laz’s backyard somewhere deep in Tennessee. Fueled by Tailwind and assisted by an incredible support team she ran 250 miles over many days and nights. What a performance and welcome back!
There are moments you will always remember in life. For some, it is their first kiss. For others, it may be their wedding day, the birth of a child, college graduation, the first time they voted for President, or even buying avocado toast instead of a house. For me, the moments that stick with me are those rare and unique days on Public Lands, where I witness something I never imagined I would see. One such moment came in October of 2019 on a quick trip to Grand Teton National Park.
By now, you have seen the pictures across social media and heard your outdoor adventure friends talk about their most-recent larch adventure in the Cascades. If you haven’t, I am impressed. In the Pacific Northwest, larch fever is easier to catch than a whiff of pumpkin spice at a Starbucks.
On this week’s episode, Doug and Mathias welcome Tabatha Collins, the soon to be world record holder for most ultra marathons completed by a woman in a year. They talk about training, aid station food, mental health and running all over the county. If you love inspiring stories and great people, this is the episode for you.
