Episode #107- Bryce Thatcher: UltrAspire and so Much more

December 12, 2017

We are a couple of really fortuante guys- we know it and we are grateful. To get an opportunity to sit down with Bryce is special. We have known Bryce for many years and we absolutely consider him a friend. His story is very special and we wanted to share just a bit of it on the show. You need to understand that a podcast like this can really last a couple days but we tried to hit some big topics and then just let Bryce go. TrailManners is very much into to the history of the sport -as much as we are into beer and cheese curds. 

Thank you Bryce for taking the time to chat and thank you for helping make the sport of trail running what it is today. We are grateful for all you have done. Good Luck and we hope to sit down with you again!

In episode #71 of the TrailManners podcast we meet Monica DeVreese. Monica is co-owner of Santa Barbara Running Company and is the co-founder of running apparel start-up Rabbit.

Monica has over 20 years experience in the run industry from brand development and product manager to store owner.

They both add a lot of knowledge and know how to Bryce's designs at UltrAspire.
We not only want to thank all the UltrAspire athletes for the past 2 episodes but a special thanks goes out to Bryce, Melanie, Tina and the entire UltrAspire family.

June 21, 2016
It is always fun when you can bring a guest back for a second time. Just a couple days after her Bighorn 100 mile race Tara Warren agreed to be back on the show. The first time we had Tara on it wasn't long after her first 100 mile race- The Bear 100. 9 months later she took on the Bighorn and PR'd by over 6 hours- going 28:48 for a woman's top 10 finish. 
We talk to Tara about things she learned, whats she has been up to as well as what it is like to be the proud parent of a high school National Champion track athlete and new record holder in the 4x1mile relay.
We also talk about testing out some new UltrAspire gear, crazy animal attacks and we want to know your thoughts on the Western States 100 this weekend.
Sit back relax and enjoy another episode of TrailManners....and as always THANK YOU for your support.
