    First 99 Gear Review - Sunbrella and Hoodies - A Cocodona Experience

    My Cocodona Redemption was an experience in planning, preparation, and prevention. But it was also a net sum energy equation and using the energy in the system as efficiently as possible. That meant eating, drinking, moving, resting, and sleeping on a regular rigid schedule to get the energy in and moving efficiently during the days and nights. One of the quickest ways to loose energy during the day is from solar rays.  Many of you asked, why is he wearing a hoodie and what is with the umbrella? Well, it again comes down to energy. When the sun is on your skin or blazing through your non-UPF-protected clothing your body responds to protect itself. To control your body temperature, you sweat. The cooling process requires energy and sweating leads to water and salt loss. So getting overheated and sunburnt leads to all sorts of problems. And with a 5-day race, you cannot afford to lose anything. This gear review focuses on the items I used to preserve my energy.

    Episode 68 - Mike Turner - Cocadona Redemption

    Episode 68 - Mike Turner - Cocadona Redemption

    After his first ever DNF at the inaugural Cocadona 250 in 2021, Mike Turner, co-host of The Mile 99 Interview podcast and "Regular Guy Ultrarunner" stormed back into his training with a burning desire to fix what went wrong.  He reinvented his entire plan, hired trainers, researched the "Ultra Lean", spoke to doctors, hit mega vert, cross-trained, dramatically changed his diet and most importantly relentlessly studied how to tackle this new distance.  
     With trusty Sun-brella in hand, he assembled a support team with his daughter at the helm and friends of new and old to pace him along the way. From the Chaparral, Piñon, Juniper, and Ponderosa forest that surrounds Prescott, Arizona, over the sunburned cow pastures of Fain Ranch, up the rugged Mingus Mountain, through the historic towns of Jerome and Sedona, forging rivers, summiting the infamous Mount Elden, to the finish line in Flagstaff; Mike’s 108-hour journey took meticulously executing everything he had ever learned about ultrarunning. 
     
    Tune in to this extra-special episode with our friend and newly-buckled Cocadona 250 finisher to hear the story of his amazing week-long adventure; Cocadona Redemption, a journey of planning, preparation, and prevention.

    Episode 67 - HOKA athletes Erin Clark and Adam Peterman post Canyons 100k interview

    Episode 67 - HOKA athletes Erin Clark and Adam Peterman post Canyons 100k interview

    Erin and Adam sat down with co-hosts Jessica and Greg for a post race interview after Canyons 100k presented by UTMB after we had spoken to them right before the race live at the Auburn Aid Station. First we started with some exciting news about Erin's return to racing (hint: it went great!) as she prepares for an overseas foray to CCC this fall. We can't wait to follow her progress there!

    Then we talked to Adam about his course record-setting win at Canyons 100k which earned him both a Golden Ticket and an automatic entry into Western States 2022 as well as an entry into CCC. We got a chance to hear more about his decision process, as Western States would be his first 100 miler following his first 100k race at Canyons.

    We're very excited for both of them wish them all the best for the 2022 season!

    Episode 66 - Manouch Shirvanioun

    Greg and Jessica sat down with Manouch Shirvanioun while Mike was on course at the Cocadona 250 race in Arizona. Manouch is an ultrarunning fixture in the Auburn area and has a great resumé of race finishes at all distances including Western States in 2018.

    He is currently training for another Western States attempt in June, and he's a new age category. We talked about his childhood in Iran, how beer got him into running, his mentors along the way as he discovered ultrarunning, his volunteer work with the Canyon Keepers in the Auburn area and much, much more! Join us for this motivating and insightful interview with Manouch.

    Episode 65 - HOKA Athletes Erin Clark and Adam Peterman live at the Auburn Aid Station

    Episode 65 - HOKA Athletes Erin Clark and Adam Peterman live at the Auburn Aid Station

    HOKA generously arranged for two of their sponsored athletes - Erin Clark and Adam Peterman - to have an in-person live podcast recording at the Auburn Aid Station store just two days before the Canyons Endurance Runs by UTMB race that took places on April 23rd, 2022.

    We had a fantastic time getting to know Erin and Adam, their early race experiences, their transitions to the trails, and their favorite distances. We also heard about the great trail community they have in Missoula, Montana, off-season training options and their dog Poppy, an accomplished runner as well!

    Just two days after this recording, Adam went on to win the Canyons 100k race in course record pace, earning himself a coveted Golden Ticket to the 2022 Western States Endurance Run! We are so excited for him and to see Erin's race at CCC in Chamonix later this year!

Genuine & community-focused labor of love

I'm so grateful to Jessica, Mike, & Greg for this labor of love of a podcast. I'm an amateur older trail runner and lifelong Bay Area resident, and I eat up every episode. Love hearing your details about trails, adventures, personalities, and races in the Auburn/Tahoe area. Since I can't run them myself (altho', maybe Canyons 25K 2023?), this podcast is the next best thing. Many thanks for your podcast and your genuine, warm-hearted, welcoming tone.
