    Episode 44 - Aliandrea Upshaw (Diné), University of New Mexico Student-Athlete (Track & Cross Country)

    Episode 44 - Aliandrea Upshaw (Diné), University of New Mexico Student-Athlete (Track & Cross Country)

    Aliandrea “Ali” Upshaw (Diné) is a member of the University of New Mexico Track & Cross Country team. She is from Fort Defiance, Arizona and is born for the Charcoal-Streaked Red Running into Water clan. Although Ali is academically classified as a sophomore, she competes athletically as a freshman due to NCAA COVID-19 sports reclassifications. Her freshman season at UNM was cut short due to the pandemic but in her first full cross country season at UNM this past fall, she placed fifth at the Mountain West Conference Championships which earned her First Team All-Mountain West honors. The Lobos finished first in their conference for the 14th consecutive year and placed third at the NCAA Division I National Championships. Prior to signing with UNM, Ali was a high school standout at St. Michael Indian School on the Navajo Reservation– she was her class valedictorian and two-time individual state champion leading her team to a state title. She was named a high school “Runner of the Year” on three occasions by the Navajo Times and like many other Grounded Pod guests, she is an alumna of the Wings of America national team. Ali is currently majoring in Biology and minoring in Native American Studies, with the goal of attending medical school or pursuing veterinary medicine.

    Common Ground - Episode 1

    Common Ground - Episode 1

    Welcome to the first episode of Common Ground, a new monthly cross-cast I’m co-hosting with Mario Fraioli. We met a little over a year ago through the Tracksmith Fellowship Program and have become close friends since he started serving as my podcast mentor. We’re calling this new project Common Ground because we are two people who come from very different backgrounds and upbringings yet share a mutual love of running, podcasting, music, and more. We will feature conversations about what’s currently exciting us in the sport, issues in the community and industry, and we may even take some listener questions. Common Ground will be released monthly in both the morning shakeout and Grounded Podcast feeds so there’s no need to subscribe to a separate show. Please let us know what you think by sending us a message via social media—@theAMshakeout or @groundedpod on both Instagram and Twitter—or use the contact form on my website here. Enjoy!

    Christian Gering (Katishtya'meh & Pi'pil), Multimedia Artist & Trail Runner

    Christian Gering is a multimedia artist and trail runner hailing from Katishyta (San Felipe Pueblo) and the Pi’pil people of El Salvador. He recently designed several prints and graphics for Janji’s Fall/Winter 2021 running apparel line– American Southwest. His creative inspiration is heavily linked to his passion for movement. Christian is known for translating his experiences of running up peaks, down arroyos, and across a variety of landscapes into feelings, emotions, and ideas in the form of visual art. Gering has had several top finishes at international races including wins at the 2015 Bandera 50K, 2018 Jemez Mountain 50-Miler, and the 2019 Javelina 100K. He also holds the course record at the latter two races. After a decade of competing professionally, he tells us about his plans to pursue his passions creatively as he dives into the many meanings, purposes, and intentions behind why we move.

    Craig Curley (Diné), Marathoner & 2012 Olympic Trials Qualifier

    Craig Curley (Diné), Marathoner & 2012 Olympic Trials Qualifier

    Craig Curley (Diné) is a marathoner and 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials Qualifier. Craig’s professional running journey has been a winding path. In the early 2000s, he was considered a top high school runner in Arizona. Forgoing Division I collegiate opportunities, he went on to compete for Pima Community College for two years and broke the 5,000m record which was previously held by Pima Community College alum Abdi Abdirahman. Shortly after the 2012 trials, Craig won the Columbus Marathon and signed a contract with Mizuno. In this conversation, we talk about the different phases of his running journey, the coaches he’s worked with, and how his home life and cultural upbringing intersect with his running career. I am lucky to have connected with Craig through our mutual friend, Mario Fraioli. Mario is currently coaching Craig as he tackles this new season of running and life.   In this episode:
