    EP 474: Mental Management with Lanny Bassham

    The events in 2020 have effected everyone throughout the world.  First with the Pandemic and now with coming to terms with some long overdue inequalities.  We didn't want to distract from the attention and introspection that is needed now.  So we decided to not publish a new episode this week, rather, we want to share one of our favorite episodes.  This episode is from 2014 and we hope you like it and might help you through these hard times.

A podcast I look forward to....

I look forward to the podcast when it drops - a real treat. I love the friendship between Scott and Don and their dynamic keeps the discussion fun and entertaining. I have learned so much and as a newbie who does not have friends who share this same interest, this podcast has helped me become more prepared and informed. Thank you!

Great for all

I just discovered this podcast yesterday and binged it and will continue today. As someone who is just getting into running to better my health and life as a whole, I have learned a lot already. Don and Scott are genuine and truly funny. Even if I didn’t want to get into running I would still probably listen to them for the guests that they have on and life lessons given by everyone on the cast.

Entertaining & Informative

Been listening for about 6 months now and I’m always excited when a new episode drops so I can listen to it while I’m out on the trails. I’ve learned so much from this podcast and can’t thank Scott and Don enough for all they do for the trail running community. Run... más!
