Lift Heavy Run Long® #209 had the whole group of us back together. I need to write a summary but honestly, all I can think about is this Mississippi State vs. Vanderbilt baseball game. So, I gotta run.I hope to come back to this but I will probably forget.
LHRL® #208- Becky Duncan & Caleb Sweavy
So, I really, really like Melisa Burgess.
Who doesn't? Everybody does.
She is a close friend of the LHRL® community.
When Melisa has a panic attack on the side of a cliff at this year's Sylamore 25k/50k, there were 2 complete strangers who stopped their race and literally talked Melisa down from the edge. They spoke to her, held her hand and walked her to safety.
I don't know if I am making a bigger deal out of it than necessary or maybe it is my selfish nature that makes it so hard for me to get a grasp on how any two stranger could be so altruistic.
Anyways, meet Becky Duncan and Caleb Sweazy. These are the two very fine people who were kind enough to stop and take care of our friend. We sat down and chatted with them and had the opportunity to learn more about them as people. They did not disappoint.
I have always loved getting to know new people on the podcast, Becky and Caleb are no exception. They give a whole new meaning to "Be good to others."
Any trail-runner worth their salt-stick knows that a trail race is about more than their finish time. Becky and Caleb proved this to be very, very true.
LHRL® #207- Brian Williams & Sean Hilsdon
Alright, alright, alright....
We had the world famous duo and founders of The Walking Tall 25k/50k on the podcast this week. The 4th annual Walking Tall race will take place on October 16,2021 and if you are not registered, you should hurry and get thatta way. You can sign up here.
Brian and Sean have done so much for the trail racing community, as well as me personally, and I am always grateful to have the opportunity to sit down and visit with them. On episode #207 we talk about the intricacies of putting on a successful race as well as what makes it successful.
Here is the rapid fire list of how it went down:
* Walking Tall
* Sean's achilles and recovery
* Pizza rolls
* Is a hot dog a sandwich?
* Is cereal soup?
* FB audio still giving me fits
Another episode of crappy audio during the Facebook Live feed!!!
It makes me crazy and I promise I am doing everything that I know to do to resolve this issue.
Here is how it went down:
* FB Live audio sucked.
* FB Live audio sucked.
* Almira 50 miler/marathon was an enormous success!!
* The World's Greatest Aid Station was in full-effect.
* Fall Creek Falls Half Marathon was a beautiful race.
* FB Live audio sucked
* Would you rather live 100 Prince Charles years or 50 DMX years?
* Scary movies
* Von gives origin of "horse puckey".
* Swift & Swole 2022 is coming. Keep your eyes and ears open.
Still loving it!
I will never get tired of Beefcake, Jacked & Tan, The Reverend, and Moneybags. Sorry If I got the last nickname wrong, I’m to tired to figure it out right now , but I’m sure if I had to listen to a few episodes over again to figure it out I’d really enjoy the reruns. ❤️
I just listened to your last podcast, I’m still here listening and enjoying each and every one.
Two thumbs up
I'm a runner/lifter in Seattle area. I found your podcast by way of your 2017 documentary about the Tunnel Hill 50/100 you posted on YouTube. That video is one of the very few that I enjoy re-watching, and your podcast never fails to inspire and entertain. Keep up the great work!
