Another big year for Jeff Browning is in the books and he just keeps getting fitter, faster, better and healthier- this is one guy who seems to have found the fountain of youth. We had Jeff on the once before and everytime we talk to him we learn a thing or two. From his stories about UTMB to his vast knowledge of OFM, we promise this show has something for everyone.
CONTEST ALERT: And one of Jeff's sponsors- UltrAspire- has been kind enough to send over a Velocity pack for us to giveaway. The Velocity pack came from a napkin that Jeff started to skept out a few years back.
Enjoy Episode #100 and don't forget to listen to find out the contest rules.

Jacob was down from Calgary and in our neck of the woods so we talked him into Studio 78 for Episode #92. Jacob has a great story of how he not only got into running but how he continued to grow through running. Last December he set the World Record for the fastest 50 mile run on a treadmill- 4:57...just to get a treadmill. We explore his coaching roots, TranSelkirks Race and talk a lot about Poutine.
Thank you Jacob- it was a pleasure meeting you and we sure hope to find our way to Canada in 2017!

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!

With the 25th running of the Chuckanut 50k happening this weekend we thought it would be a great time to talk to the amazing RD- Krissy Moehl. Krissy was kind enough (and patient enough) to join us for a podcast over the phone. Being in the final stages of preparation we cannot thank Krissy enough for taking the time to talk to us and give us all the details about the race and what the runners can expect. She has a couple other RD's helping and a load of volunteers to help make this event happen. Good Luck and we hope you all enjoy the show!

Sushi then a Podcast....Yes please. We definitely did something a bit different with this episode. We met our guest- Kenzie Barlow and a grocery store...a "high end" grocery store (her words-ha). We sat in some soft leather couches next to the fire place and it was game on!
Kenzie has been running, racing and coaching for years. When she talks you can just see the joy they bring her. She is passionate about running and gathering more and more knowledge on the stuff. We covered a bit of everything from Snow Snorkelers to Dirty Dirty Rap. If you don't believe that- you better have a listen.
Enjoy the show and check out the Tenacity Tenfold Endurance link in the show notes.

It was a pleasure to get to sit in the "stands" at the Speedgoat Croquet Court and talk to the legend, Karl Meltzer about his FKT on the AT. We knew he had already sat down with so many people and shows in the past that we mixed it up a bit and asked him questions from our listeners to spice it up.
We also were able to talk about the future of the SpeedGoat 50k and pick his brain on other trail running topics.
He mentioned "something" he is planning with Redbull and we can't wait to hear more. Enjoy the show and don't forget about BOTH of the cool contests!

When we got the opportunity to go to the UltrAspire house during Outdoor Retailers- we jumped. It was truly an all-star line up of not only amazing athletes but absolutely remarkable people.
The format was different and we had to be on our toes after recording 6 shows earlier in the day.
Our first podcast features Bree Lambert and Ian Sharman. Bree was gearing up for a run at Tahoe 50 and Ian was headed back to the Leadville 100 (Ian went on to win...again).
We talked about the sport of trail running, coaching and yes some racing as well.
Take some time and head over to their websites to have an more in-depth look as well as see if they may be the right coach for you!

We headed back to our home away from home in Park City and met up with guest Brian Tolbert at Park City Running Company. Right when we walked in the door we got the first real life glimpse on the "power- stache". Mr. Tolbert is one on the good ones in the sport. He is a great guy and just easy to sit and chat with.
Brian started in with a little background of his bike racing life until the switch over to running the trail. He may be a little newer to trail racing but he has some super impressive results. He takes us on a race by race breakdown as well as what's ahead.
Thanks again to Canice and Park City Running Company and of course Brian "power-stache" Tolbert.

We are super excited to get Ashley Nordell on Google Hangouts for this episode. I have been a fan of Ashley's for many years. She does "her thing" quietly and just goes out and racks up wins. Fresh off her Bighorn 100 win, Ashley talks to us about how this years race was different, the challenges faced with racing and being a mom as well as working with a coach for the first time.
Have a listen and enjoy!
