HE DID IT! We had Preston on the podcast a few weeks back as he prepared for his 2nd 100-miler and 1st Western States 100. He threw down a goal of sub 24 and he went out and got it.
We want to congratulate Preston again for his accomplishment and hard work. He not only is a fantastic trail runner but a great dude!
Listen to his race breakdown- it's awesome!

Preston Wood received good news the first time he put in for the Western States 100 lottery last year and has been training hard ever since. We had a great time talking with Preston and cannot wait to get him back on after the race. He sat down with us the day before he raced the Squaw Peak 50 and we grilled him on his upcoming Western race. He is such a great guy and we cannot send enough good vibes for his trip to Auburn later this month. Good Luck Preston- TrailManners will be sending all the good mojo your way!
***Update on his 2018 Squaw Peak 50- In the podcast he mentined his goal is to go under 10:30. Preston finished in 9:37

What a absolute pleasure to sit down with Jeff and talk about his big year. This show could have easily been 3 hours long with all the knowledge he was sharing. Have a listen to his thoughts on the Western States/Hardrock double and his road to recovery. He has been fat adaptive for 2016 and talks about the process and the benefits he has seen.
Thanks again #that90'sguy......giddy up!

As always- thanks for the amazing hospitality!

Happy Saint Patricks Day! We have another bonus show for you- this time from Park City Running Company. We were happy that Canice took the bait and accepted the invite to be on the show. When we arrived he served up some Dirty Chai's and it was game on. With the chance of sounding like a broken record- Canice is an amazing guy and you can just feel how passionate he is about what he does. He has established an absolutely amazing run store while keeping the community in mind. It was an absolute pleasure to get to know Canice and hear the story of PCRC as well as talk about his own story of comebacks and running. Good Luck at Western States Canice- GO GET IT!

When trouble hits the trail community people really step up. We had to say goodbye to yet another amazing person. It is humbling and inspiring to see so many people ready to do whatever is needed to help. We feel fortunate to be associated with so many people and groups and see and hear what they are willing to do. RIP Stephen Jones and condolences to your family.
Western States steps up big time and possibly sets a trend for racing, testing and PED's.
Wasatch 100 held their lottery and our man Turd'l Miller finally got the call- time to run Turd'l!
Again- thanks for listening and don't forget to share us and invite all your friends to listen.
