October 5, 2017

 The Bear and Beanies. We are happy and excited to announce that our Beanies are open for Pre-Sale. First 50 (well 48 cause we each get one) are up for grabs. They are selling fast and sure to be a hit. We also talk a lot about the Bear 100. It was a magical weekend here in Utah (and Idaho technically) as we got to see so many friends old and new at the incredible race. Congrats to all those who were there! 

And of course we announce this weeks winner of the WDYFTY contest. With the seasons changing we can't wait to see Where Youyr Feet Take You.

Episode #98- Turd’L Miller: The Man, The Myth, The Legend

October 3, 2017

Anytime we get a chance to talk to Turd'l we take it. There is never a dull moment so we need to take full advantage when we can. Not only do we enjoy having him on the show but we like to just sit in Studio 78 eating burritos, drinking beer and rockin puffies. 

We want to encourage everyone to come to St George the first weekend in December for a celebration of trail running at the Capstone races. See you all at "The Stone".

Singletrack Session #56

September 28, 2017

It is already the end of September and we have seen some snow fly. It is a great time to remember to make sure you are prepared when heading to higher elevations. It can get nasty and change on a dime - stay safe and have the proper gear. This weekend is also the Bear 100 in Logan, Utah- one of our favorites. Good Luck to all those running. BEANIES....Beanies are coming- stay tuned....

Have a great week and thanks for your support!

Episode #97- Luke Nelson: The Champ is back

September 26, 2017

Our repeat champion, Luke Nelson, is back to fill us in on his 2017 activism, adventures and what he has in store for 2018.

When we last spoke with Luke Nelson, in February of 2017, he was preparing for RUFA and hinted at some extraordinary adventure runs for the Summer of 2017 (Utah 13ers and Nolans). In this interview we learned that Luke and Jared Campbell set the record for the fastest traverse of Utah’s 13ers and that they had a successful attempt at Nolans but did come up a bit short on the Nolans FKT.

We wrap up the interview talking about the Bear 100, running Hardrock 100 or even maybe Barkley’s Marathon (yikes!), and the new race distances for the 2018 SMUT.

  • Running across Bear Ears National Monument 
  • The cost of beauty, loving our Monuments to death

Episode #96- Trevor Fuchs: 2017 Wasatch 100 winner (20:59)

September 12, 2017

The Wasatch 100 has another 2 time winner- Trevor Fuchs. We sit Trevor down in Studio 78 two days after another impressive win at the 2017 Wasatch 100. He pretty much ran at the front from the start and had a nearly flawless day. We cover the past year from working with a coach for the first time, running the inaugural Gib Wallace race (shameless plug) and getting married to his beautiful wife Tempest. Hanging out with Trevor is a blast and you can just see the love he has for trail running and the local trail community when he talks. After a little down time, Trevor will get right back on it for his trip to Hawaii in January 2018 for the running of the HURT 100....Good Luck!

Thank you Trevor for taking the time to talk and thank you for the reminder to make sure we have fun out there on the trails.

Episode #95- Sarah McCloskey: Toughness and Strength

September 5, 2017

We are back with Episode #95 and Sarah McCloskey. Sarah epitomizes toughness and mental strength. Just by talking to her you can get a glimpse of why she is one hell of a mountain runner. The fact we lost our first show with her and she wasn't phased at all for the next try shows how she can take anything in stride and just keep moving. As she approaches another Wasatch 100 start we get to talk to her about her thoughts on crew, pacing and all things 100 related. We learned a lot from our guest and we can bet you can to. Thank you Sarah for not just sitting down with us but for being an amazing trail mentor to so many.

Show Notes:

  • Episode #95- Take 2
  • Intro
  • Mantras
  • Pacing Philosophy
