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.

Nov 27, 2018

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.

Nov 18, 2018

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.

Nov 17, 2018

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!

Steph went out and did what she set out to do, run 100 miles!  She learned a lot along the way.  Hear about her experience in the Blue Ridge Mountains where she ran over 100 miles and gained over 26,000 feet.  Enjoy the show.

Oct 30, 2018

Caroline has been nailing her training during this whole cycle. The only thing that has given her any real trouble is the heat, until now. We trouble shoot some root causes and hope for the best.  Hope you learned something on the show today.

Oct 29, 2018

Candy had some great questions for her training including the regular one that leads to so much stress...Is there somewhere to relieve myself at Bandera?  Also, weights on her power hikes. Yay or Nay?  We also talk about how to mentally start framing her longer efforts in training!

Oct 25, 2018

Red had been putting in legit time on her legs and it is showing. When you have your biggest training week ever and didn't even know, that's a good sign. She has also been dealing with some illness and training blues but is coming out strong! Enjoy the call and hope you learned something today!

Oct 22, 2018

This was a great call because it was so simple.  Searching for a huge reason to get motivated instead of of the simple ones can set us all back in our training. Sara talks about when it finally clicked for her and it's a great lesson. Hope you enjoy.

Oct 12, 2018

Steph is ready for her second attempt at 100 miles just a few months after her last.  We go over the course and race strategy!  We hope you enjoy the show!

Oct 11, 2018

Susan is training for Bandera and a November 50k on the way to Texas.  She is adding a new strength training regimen so we dig in to that and how life is always evolving around her, and our, goals. Enjoy.

Oct 8, 2018

Brian has some legit challenges for his schedule so we are just finding ways to make it happen without letting it overwhelm him.  Enjoy the call!

Sep 28, 2018

Caroline is nailing her runs.  She is hitting all of her goals so now we are focusing on putting some urgency into picking up her pace.  The transition happens for most runners at some point in training and the time is now!

Sep 27, 2018

Steph has gone from training for the hottest 100 miler around to training for one with some of the most elevation gain out there, 26,000+ feet of gain.  We don't have much time so enjoy the show on how we are attacking the training and the race!

Sep 13, 2018

Red is in a pretty good place right now finding the time to get the training in with less stress on the table.  It's all a part of the flow of life and training and we think you'll be able to relate.

Sep 6, 2018

Steph knew from day one that her coaching and training would be unique from a timing and periodization standpoint.  So, when she wanted to try her second 100 miler in less than 3 months, we knew we had to find quality in her training instead of quantity. This call is all about that balance and the goals for this training cycle.

Sep 3, 2018

Susan is getting ready for some big mountain running this fall and has to deal with one of the most common and annoying injuries as runners, a sprained ankle.  Enjoy the show!

Sep 3, 2018

Caroline is a runner from California with grandkids and a big heart to see what she is capable of doing.  Listen to another call to see how her training is going! Thanks for listening.

Aug 31, 2018

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!

Aug 29, 2018

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?

Aug 26, 2018

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.

Aug 21, 2018

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 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!

Jul 30, 2018

Missy is struggling in that Arizona heat.  91 degrees in the middle of the night will do that for most people.  The biggest issue is that she works outside most of the day so suffering before work is tough and finding the energy after is just as tough.  We talk about fueling a little differently and how that should help as well as some of the mental approaches that should help! Enjoy the show.
