What flavor do you want your hydration fuel to be? Why are watch straps so expensive? What happens when you wear sandals in the sun? How fun is it to run through an entire night?
Doug and Mathias discuss their respective runs for last weeks Summer of Vert 4HR Vertical event. Doug finds bliss in the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness and Mathias stands twice on the summit of Mt. Rose. Also discussed are route building skills, beer encounters and how to overcome the fear of the unknown outdoors. Feels like a real running podcast around here.
Our first virtual race was an incredible success and we’re excited to sit down with women’s race winner Tabatha Collins who shares her challenges with teaching first graders during this time, overcoming injury and running up and down her backyard hill 188 times.
The show includes bacon, torrential downpours and lots of unfinished paperwork.
Some state parks and other public lands are slowly being opened up for outdoor activity. What does this mean for us trail runners and how should we behalf when heading for the trail heads? This and other hard hitting questions are being discussed in this week’s show.
Also: Virtual Vert Challenge is happening this weekend and the Virtual Trail Running Film Festival is coming to your living room.
Exciting times in quarantine-land.
