Great resource for trailrunners

I have been listening to Becoming Ultra for over a year now and have learned so much about trail running. I am not planning to do an ultra any time soon, but the content of the pod applies to any trail running pursuits. You would usually pay for this kind of insight and advice. I love the concept of featuring runners who are training for their first ultra - very inspiring and humbling. Thanks Scott!
