Jeff Hart is coming to us live from Silverton, Colorado- home of the Hardrock 100. Much like the race, this episode is raw and uncut. We even get a guest appearance from Mr. James Varner. We have been keeping up with Jeff on his preparations and training for Hardrock and we are finally here. This show is the last time we get to talk to Jeff until after the race. We cannot thank him enough for taking us on this journey. Jeff -Good Luck and Thank you but most of all we all want you to "KISS IT".

Happy 4th of July everyone! With this weeks show we catch up with Eric Chrisman of Elevation Culture and talk about everything from racing 200's, the fact he is a former soccer player (Aric & Joel dig that) and being the Owner/Founder/Designer at Elevation Culture in San Diego.
Eric took his passion for the trails and turned that into an amazing small business. If you are a RD or need any type of award- we cannot recommend Elevation Culture highly enough. Thanks Eric for taking the time to join us on the TrailManners Podcast and thank you for what you are bringing to the trail world.

TrailManners super fan, Curtis Thompson, busted his wheel while volunteering at the 2017 RUFA and needed surgery to fix torn ligaments and tendons in his ankle. The long recovery meant his 2017 Wasatch 100 was out of the question as was most running for the summer. Curtis asked if we could do a show on the Psychology of Recovery and we're happy to make that happen!
Dr. Chris Heilman from Mindset Coaching, jumped on a call to answer Curtis' burning question...what is the optimal way to psychologically deal with an injury and what tools can we acquire and sharpen during the recovery process.

With an uptick in trail usage we reached out to San Diego based ultra runner and founder of the Trail Initiative for some advice on being good stewards of the trails.
The Trail Initiative was founded in March of 2017 to help clean, preserve, and restore the trails of Southern California. Michael's goal is to grow the Trail Initiative from a local chapter to a National organization with a chapter in each state.
The Trail Initiative can be found on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thetrailinitiative/

Ask The Listeners Question From Natalie Sheffield
Hey guys! I wanted to throw out a suggestion for the podcast. I recently had to back down my 50k to a half due to burnout. My problem was a fast buildup too soon. I'm always seeing people doing these epic runs on social media and I think that led to the fast build up that led to burnout. My thoughts were if they can do it , I can do it. I was wondering if you could do a newbie podcast on what to expect and how not to get caught up with what others are doing on social media. I think it's wonderful what people are accomplishing, but I think as a newbie you can get caught up with it and go out to hard. Social media does not showcase what it really takes to get to these high mileage points.
To help answer Natalie's question we called up Coach Ty Draney and asked him for his sagely advice.
- Why transition from road marathon to trail ultra?
- What can you expect when making the transition?
- Slow down and walk. No REALLY it's fine to walk!
- Wet shorts and chaffing
- Nutrition and hydration, it's okay to eat real food
- Aid Station transitions, plan ahead for an efficient visit to the AS
- Did we mention it's okay to walk!
