Mathias has a call with the German consulate, Doug runs a random half and both guys are getting ready to battle allergies. After a masterful transition by Doug, we finally talk about the upcoming 100 miler that Mathias will run. Or will he walk it? Either way, a pair of shoes has been settled on and he so ready to rock. Don’t worry, we also have a weather report and some awesome some trail running gear to review.
This episode of Ted Lasso poses the serious question of what to wear to an elevated function, and what to wear on the soccer pitch or as fans in the stands, if we’re ever get to do this again. The show also gives us a great examples of how to be a better man.
Ted to Rebecca: “You may be thinking you’re the only one who can see who he really is, but you’re not.”
Eurovision and Barkley talk kick off this week’s conversation. Is the Barkley hype waning or is Doug just a pessimist who doesn’t believe in fun?
Red Bull X-Alps is starting and both Mathias and Doug daydream about mountain running and learning to paraglide to participate in this unique Alps adventure. Nathan now has clothes, Mathias has shoes and Doug has bison and bighorn sheep on a run.
We can “bearly” contain our happiness with this news! The first official grizzly bear sighting of 2021 has occurred in Yellowstone National Park! The inevitable return to warmer weather is showing signs of occurring. We are a still a long ways off from wildflowers and open Park roads, but the bears are “waking up.”
Happy(?) 1st year of Covidiversary, everyone! After talking about the past year, we take a quick dip into everyone’s favorite recurring segment: “weather talk!” Mathias dives into the running part of the show by giving an update about running 100 miles last week and how his training is going. Doug talks about his Livingston-Bozeman Route and update before Mathias makes an announcement Oh, Strava has an update, giving users their previous month in review. Check it out.
Yes, we’re doing it and you are welcome. Ted Lasso, the greatest show on television deserves to be reviewed, talked about and praised by two average trail runners, because that fits our show format perfectly. We’re diving into episode one and will feature a episode each week, or so we hope. Follow along and watch Ted Lasso on Apple TV+ and, if you’re a superfan, reach out and we’ll bring you on the show. Wanker!
Remember the movie Innerspace from 1987? No? Well, this week we quickly chat about the new Kilian documentary Inside Kilian on Amazon Prime before we dive into training and weekly goals. We debate bringing a change of socks for ultras and then dive into shoe talk. 100 miles is a long way to go, but Mathias is getting ready as we discuss the physical and mental challenges he will be facing in Utah this April. Will he end the race with jet black hair, bangs across his forehead and dressed in full on goth fashion? Only time will tell!
