Episode #84- Logan Ledford: Fried Chicken To Clean Trail Advocate

May 23, 2017

 

At it's core, TrailManners Podcast is a medium for the average trail runner to share stories of discovery, growth, beer, and of course cheese curds. Man, do we have a story for you today!

When I first heard that silky smooth Louisiana twang I knew we had a good guest, but did he have a story to match that gentlemen's drawl? Listen and enjoy as Logan Ledford spins a tale of growing up in Louisiana with water maccosians (that's a mean ass snake for those that don't know), grandma's fried chicken, and running highway over-passes for vert training. Stick around and find out how Logan made his way from the swamps to the Wasatch Front where he now is spearheading a #trashattack for the Wasatch Mountain Wranglers but we think he has more Branding power with #logansjunk. 

 

Show Notes;

  • Louisiana roots and home cookin'
  • Logan's first Ultra
  • Moving to Utah
  • Utah wlecome committee, Logan's Car gets stolen
  • Wrangler spat is an opportunity for action
  • #logansjunk

Episode #83- Anna Frost: “Summit Our Own Mountain”

May 9, 2017

Studio 78 has seen its fair share of guests but Episode #83 brought Anna Frost to the Captain's chair for an absolutely memorable episode! Frosty is as real as they come. She makes everyone around her feel comfortable and special at the same time. She loves taking about "you" and talks about herself only when asked. Her presence is bigger than her posters and banners you see around the world and leaves people with a smile to equal it. It was an absolute honor and priveledge for us to spend a couple days with her. Thank you Anna- you are amazing!

Show Notes:

  • Frosty's background
  • Now we are "besties"
  • Balance
  • Equality in trail running
  • "Pole Cat Gang"
  • Lightning Round

Episode #81- Erik Storheim: Barkley Marathons

April 25, 2017

One of the things we really look forward to is when we can get some guests on the show that have been around the scene for awhile. The stories, the changes and the evolution of the sport are fascinating. Erik has been doing ultras since 2005 and his race resume speaks for itself. We were pumped to get him on the show to talk a little bit about the sport and its evolution but also talk about his experience over the last 2 years of heading out to run the Barkley Marathons. 

Show Notes:

  • Erik's history
  • Evolution of trail running
  • "Control what you can control"
