Episode #96- Trevor Fuchs: 2017 Wasatch 100 winner (20:59)

September 12, 2017

The Wasatch 100 has another 2 time winner- Trevor Fuchs. We sit Trevor down in Studio 78 two days after another impressive win at the 2017 Wasatch 100. He pretty much ran at the front from the start and had a nearly flawless day. We cover the past year from working with a coach for the first time, running the inaugural Gib Wallace race (shameless plug) and getting married to his beautiful wife Tempest. Hanging out with Trevor is a blast and you can just see the love he has for trail running and the local trail community when he talks. After a little down time, Trevor will get right back on it for his trip to Hawaii in January 2018 for the running of the HURT 100....Good Luck!

Thank you Trevor for taking the time to talk and thank you for the reminder to make sure we have fun out there on the trails.

Episode #95- Sarah McCloskey: Toughness and Strength

September 5, 2017

We are back with Episode #95 and Sarah McCloskey. Sarah epitomizes toughness and mental strength. Just by talking to her you can get a glimpse of why she is one hell of a mountain runner. The fact we lost our first show with her and she wasn't phased at all for the next try shows how she can take anything in stride and just keep moving. As she approaches another Wasatch 100 start we get to talk to her about her thoughts on crew, pacing and all things 100 related. We learned a lot from our guest and we can bet you can to. Thank you Sarah for not just sitting down with us but for being an amazing trail mentor to so many.

Show Notes:

  • Episode #95- Take 2
  • Intro
  • Mantras
  • Pacing Philosophy
  • Wasatch 100
  • "The Boss"
  • 150 Ski days
