105: ‘Cold Snacks and Yoga Breaks’ with Special Guests Abram Dickerson and James Varner

Year three of Singletrack kicks off with a bam. James Varner of Rainshadow Running and Abram Dickerson of Aspire Adventure Running stop by to talk about the upcoming Virtual Trail Running Film Festival. Of course, there’s other stuff too, like injury talk, exciting!

104: ‘Mixtape Vol. II’


Aside from the weather your favorite podcast hosts don’t talk about running, again. Here are their favorite songs currently on their playlist, so you get something out of listing to this.

103: ‘Be Safe Out There’

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?

102: ‘My Expectations Aren’t Very High’

Doug finds bags of flour to bake and shares a story of one of his favorite runs in Glacier National Park.
Mathias contemplates running every single street in Olympia again and shares some of his favorite Tailwind flavors… buzz buzz…

101: ‘After Dark with Beer and Whiskey’


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.

100: ‘8,630 minutes’

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 sunsets
and cups of coffee…

99: ‘Toilet Paper Doesn’t Bring Me Joy’

It’s a show for the end of the world… or so it it feels. Doug is injured, Kaiser Woods dances with Mathias, races are canceled and training plans are made for these desperate times.

Stay healthy, friends, stay healthy. And go on a run, if you can!

98: ‘The Philosophy of Hills’


Doug suspends his campaign, finally. Mathias forgets his water on his long run, like a noob.
They discuss Walmsley at the Olympic Trials, proper nutrition on long runs and what adventure experiences do to the human psyche. We need more of it.

Thanks for tuning in every week – means the world to us!

97: ‘Discounted Running Shoes’


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.

96: ‘It’s Such a Good Feeling to run Many Miles’

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!
