Episode #88- Michael Laymon: The Trail Initiative

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 #84- Logan Ledford: Fried Chicken To Clean Trail Advocate

May 23, 2017

 

At it's core, TrailManners Podcast is a medium for the average trail runner to share stories of discovery, growth, beer, and of course cheese curds. Man, do we have a story for you today!

When I first heard that silky smooth Louisiana twang I knew we had a good guest, but did he have a story to match that gentlemen's drawl? Listen and enjoy as Logan Ledford spins a tale of growing up in Louisiana with water maccosians (that's a mean ass snake for those that don't know), grandma's fried chicken, and running highway over-passes for vert training. Stick around and find out how Logan made his way from the swamps to the Wasatch Front where he now is spearheading a #trashattack for the Wasatch Mountain Wranglers but we think he has more Branding power with #logansjunk. 

 

Show Notes;

  • Louisiana roots and home cookin'
  • Logan's first Ultra
  • Moving to Utah
  • Utah wlecome committee, Logan's Car gets stolen
  • Wrangler spat is an opportunity for action
  • #logansjunk
