Meet Brian from Michigan!  A relatively new BAC runner with big goals to run the Bandera 50k.  We pretty much decided his journey would be interested right before this call so there wasn't a proper introduction. Enjoy the show and getting to know him!

Dan gets a taste of the brutality of 100 miles in the Texas heat.  Liza has her own pacing stories from Leadville.  Dan also builds some legit running karma on his weekend.  Also, his training up to this point! Enjoy the show.

Kat started the call with some uncertainty and Sean made sure to fix that right away.  Confidence and training with a coach, it's a fine line and the good coaches put their runners at ease. Enjoy the show!

Missy just started taking classes for nursing school. No, she didn't stop working, and no she did not stop running. How do we deal with crazy time management issues as runners?

Steph had one heck of an experience at Habanero.  We go over the race that was, try to learn as much as we can from it, and figure out what is next in this recap show.  If you are ever going to run a 100 miler, you'll learn a lot from this one!  Enjoy the show.

Candy is getting back to her routine after a little dental issue.  Her training has been pretty consistent but things are about to ramp up! Enjoy the show.

Aug 16, 2018

So much to cover logistically, physically, and mentally for any 100 miler but when it is a travel race with little to no crew it gets trickier.  We cover lots about the mental approach as well.  Enjoy the show!  Want to support Steph...here is a way.

Aug 15, 2018

Dan is hitting some bigger goals and staying the course. We talk about lots of things that everyday runners think about during a long training cycle and how our decisions change based on these training efforts. Enjoy!

Aug 3, 2018

Kat has some concerns about her training and questions if she will be able to do some of the things she has set out to do. Sean sets her straight!  She is also getting ready for a big trip to Iceland! Enjoy the show.

Aug 2, 2018

Steph had a HUGE month of big events weekend after weekend.  We now have a few weeks to get her body and mind ready for the Texas heat.  It will be a big adventure and challenge, that's for sure!
