Well, even the best laid plans to pan out. We hit Antelope Island for the Buffalo Run 25k this past weekend do talk to folks and get some stories- unfortunately, we only got in one but it was fun. We talked to the RD Jim Skaggs right after he sent the 300+ runners out on the course. Thanks again Jim!

Episode #15- We are back! Race results, Buffalo Run and Strength Training

February 23, 2016

Did you miss us? We sure missed you. After an amazing trip to DC we are back and firing on all cylinders. We thought we would start by catching up on a few race results from Moab and Black Canyon. A couple early season races in amazing places. Congrats to those who punched tickets to the "big dance"- Western States 100 and all those who got out. 

We had to take a few minutes to give a huge thanks and shout out to Mr. Jim Skaggs from Buffalo Run Adventures for all his support and help through the years. The Buffalo Run is fast approaching and registration closes on February 29th. Don't put it off any longer- register! The island is a magical place to run and the finish line party is crazy fun- plus you can get some amazing Buffalo Stew.
We close it out with some tips from our very own Joel Hatch on strength training. He throws out some great advice and helps answer a few questions to get started.
Thanks again for listening and don't forget to visit the site soon for some great TrailManners gear!

Episode #9- Jim Skaggs: Race Directing and Enabling

Episode #9- Jim Skaggs: Race Directing and Enabling

January 5, 2016

It's a New Year and here at TrailManners we are off and running. And we thought we would kick it off with a local legend, awesome RD and all around great guy- Jim Skaggs.

Jim has been a solid presence in the Wasatch Mountains since they formed. He has done so much for the trail and ultra running community in Utah and we wanted to know more about him. 
He started the Buffalo Run with a little over 100 runners and now as he exceeds 800 he still hasn't lost that small race, home town feel. With his home brew and amazing wife Karen (the best stew cook this side of the Mississippi) they make sure all the runners have a great time before and after the race. You would be hard pressed to find a chink in his armor other than the fact he doesn't like IPA's. 
Jim not only puts on incredible races but he gets out and performs at the best of them too. He is a Grand Slammer and throws in the occasional 5k for fun. He is well versed in the art of racing- from timed runs on a flat track to going sub 30 at Wasatch. We were excited to sit down with Jim and ask him the hard questions....or something like that.

Head on over to Buffalo Run Adventures and see what all the hoopla is about!
