Episode #87- Ty Draney: Transition from Road running to Trail running

June 13, 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.

Show Notes:

  • 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!

Episode #35- Debbie Farka: Training with a Coach

June 28, 2016
With all the questions we have been getting in regards to coaching we thought we would bring someone on that knew firsthand. Debbie has never been coached but in January of this year that changed. She talks about the process she has gone through and how it has positively impacted not just her running but her life. As the interview goes on you can hear the excitement in her voice as she gets closer to her "A" race in September.
Thanks Debbie for taking the time to sit down with TrailManners.
Enjoy the show!

Show Notes:

  • Getting a Coach
  • Changes to training
  • Structure
  • Diamond Days (gonna start seeing some hashtags with that)

Well we had big plans of doing a show after the SMUT race this past Saturday but unfortunately we were toast. The heat and race took its toll so after about an hour of sitting around trying to regroup we called it and started the drive back home. We had a great time seeing some familiar faces and new ones and as always enjoyed our journey in the mountains. 
During this show will we recap the race and just talk trails.

Show Notes:

  • SMUT Race
  • We got cooked
  • Coaching
  • Why run?

Episode #5- Ty Draney: Fat biking, Barkley and “Type 3 Fun”

Episode #5- Ty Draney: Fat biking, Barkley and “Type 3 Fun”

December 8, 2015

Just like a race- when you don't get the result you want, you come back for more. That is what happened when we sat down with Ty a few months back and did a show with him. It did not come out how we wanted so we had our people get in touch with his people and we were lucky enough to book him again. I say we were lucky because Ty does it all- coaching, race directing, running, coaching, racing, traveling, teaching, did I say coaching? and of course a great family man. 

You will be hard pressed to find a better person than Ty- he is one of the true good people out there and we were excited to hear what he is looking at for 2016. 
Sit back, relax and enjoy the show and please head on over to to see and learn more.

Show Notes
  • Fat biking
  • Barkley dreamin'
  • Jared Campbell, Mt Ranier and "type 3 fun"
  • How to find the right coach
