We had to take the time to share this with our audience!  Usually these shows are being recorded in someone's office at home and usually life is happening all around.  Enjoy the 3 second episode with 7 year old Wyatt  and 5 year old West getting you hyped for the December series!

We are getting pretty dang ambitious around here.  We introduce the cohost of the second annual December Podcast Project and some of the more interesting topics we will be covering. One podcast every day for the whole month of December. It's gonna be crazy! You're gonna learn a lot!

Sara has had lots of ups and downs in this training cycle both physically and mentally.  It's pretty normal but when this whole ultra thing is new to you, it sure doesn't feel like it.  "I was going to call you to say I didn't think I could do this..."  Yeah, I've heard that as a coach so many times, and it's okay.  If you face these thoughts head on, you can beat them.  It was a good, real, coaching call!  Enjoy!

Dan turned his ankle recently and hasn't been able to get the swelling down.  His work and travel have made it quite the challenge so we continue to troubleshoot and figure some options that may make the situation better while he heals.  Talking about a frustrating injury that so many runners deal with is sure to give some perspective out there!  Liza also shares her experience from the annual Band Of Runners Trail Camp.  Enjoy the show!

Red has a friend going through a very hard time. In typical Red style, she is there to help but she is still very motivated and disciplined to get her running in as well.  This was a great call and both Scott and Red probably forgot they were recording.  Hopefully, you can learn something from it, we always do!  Thanks for listening.

Candy had the chance to head out to California for the Band Of Runners trail camp and shared the inspiring experience today. Also, a change from distance to timed runs for her long efforts in the works. Enjoy the show.

Paula was going to run the American River 50 last year but tragedy hit her family and she couldn't use her training for the event. So, she refocused her efforts to a 50 miler in the Alaskan wilderness.  Listen to the experience on today's show which features the first ultra of runners all over the world!

Caroline has had some odd pain in her chest after certain distances and certain efforts.  She has been trying to pin down the exact cause and continue to run based on what her doctors are allowing after her recent stress test.  This call was as much a pep talk to what all can come in the way of positive outcomes no matter what the diagnoses ends up being.  Hope you enjoy.

Susan had to miss out on a race she had planned for quite awhile but she adjusted her mindset quickly to get back into training for Bandera.  She recently decided to take the strength training in her own hands so Scott and her go over the changes to make sure she is executing.  It's a great reminder for some movements that seem pretty straight forward.  Enjoy the show and we hope you learned something today!

Dan is cruising along and taking every challenge that comes his way.  He is even in the mode of running around the neighborhood to get more distance in and we all know what that feels like.  We talk a bit about his longest effort coming up and what he is thinking about the progress to date. Enjoy the show!

David wanted to pick somewhere really cool for his first ultra so he ran in Ireland.  Well, things didn't go as well as expected so listen to how he recalibrated and went back.  My First Ultra is all about runners' experiences with their first Ultra!  Enjoy the show!

Mo has been on Team BU for a while and always has great questions.  This call had enough unique ones that we just had to share. Enjoy!
