    110: I Think a Hundred Is Doable - Prepping for Western States with Charlie Granger

    110: I Think a Hundred Is Doable - Prepping for Western States with Charlie Granger

    In this episode we wander around the surprisingly busy Genesee Valley Park with Charlie Granger. Charlie is heading to Western States this year! But he’s been out west before this… Angeles Crest 100 was his first hundred miler. He’s from the San Gabriel mountains, so you know, it just made sense. As for locally, you may have seen Charlie around Twisted Branch 100k, Many on the Genny or maybe most recently at Cayuga Trails 50k. This was a fun experiment of a podcast, Charlie and I participate in a quite eventful day at Genesee Valley park and chat about how his training is going, how he plans (or doesn’t) for these big events and just some life things in general. And as you’ll see, both of us have a bit of a fun time trying to remember, well… anything from the past. So feel free to shout into the air as you hear us stumble through a bunch of “thought exercises”

    109: A Primitive Footpath - Setting the End to End FKT on the Finger Lakes Trail with Mark Valites, John Ghidiu and Christy Post

    109: A Primitive Footpath - Setting the End to End FKT on the Finger Lakes Trail with Mark Valites, John Ghidiu and Christy Post

    Mark Valites ran the across New York State a few months ago. He set the first known Supported FKT (Fastest Known Time) running East to West on the NY Finger Lakes Trail. It’s 584 miles… ish. Who’s counting? And two of the main people that were along for the ride (and let’s face it, driving the bus) were John Ghidiu and Christy Post. We recount the highs and lows and lows of Mark's trip on this "hidden gem" of a trail.


    Christy, in addition to being an excellent runner (think, Muddy Sneaker, Mendon Trail 50 K, Many on The Genny, Breakneck Point, Twisted Branch), is also the recently minted Director of Marketing for the FLTC, Finger Lakes Trail Conference, the organization that does so much to ensure the Finger lakes Trail exists… and is really amping up their game to help everyone learn about this awesome trail that crosses the near entirety of New York. Super excited for a lot of what Christy is working on. John is … well… you’ll find out. John does a lot of things and the intros are already long enough. I’m not trying to sell him short. He just uses different words than I would use. So you should hear his.
    Anyway, in this episode, we’re going to talk about Mark’s FKT and some surprising outcomes from said adventure.
    Special Guests: Christy Post, John Ghidiu, and Mark Valites.

    108: We Tolerate Each Other with Affection - with Sara and Todd Brotsch

    Todd and Sara ran their first marathon together. Like step by step together. At Disney. They do lots of things together. Except train for their marathon. Todd did many of his long runs with Rochester Running Company group runs (and more than a few Thursday runs with me and the group at ThreeHeads Brewery.) Sara likes to run alone. But yet they did their first marathon together. How? Well… let’s find out!

    107: I Am Hot Blooded with Josh Frankel

    107: I Am Hot Blooded with Josh Frankel

    Josh Frankel and I get together to chat about bad decisions, good friends and combining the two can lead to really great times. We spend some time talking about how Josh got running and then we get into how he ended up doing longer distances by recapping the timeline of Josh’s races. And Josh has been in a lot of the good ones. From 5ks through half and full marathons and the onto ultras including the fabled hundred miler. (The alternate title for this episode was “I’m signed up for another one this year… but then, we uncovered the surprising truth of his favorite distance to run!)

    106 This is Like Flossing - with Mitch Ball

    106 This is Like Flossing - with Mitch Ball

    Mitch’s race history reads like a guy who REALLY wants to win races. Who REALLY wants to get the most out of himself. Also, he doesn't really run ultras. And yet, his dream race is Leadville 100. Yes, a hundred miler out in Colorado. A race he surely had little chance of finishing, let alone winning. Why was that his dream race? And why are his dreams so long and 12,000 feet elevation?
    Maybe that's how he thought he could compete... at a higher level. [Cue Who Music] 😎

Chris O’Brian saved the 2020 election

Without the soothing sound of this man’s voice, I would not have gotten through the 2020 election. The baritone melody coming through his beard hole is exactly what we all need when we’re feeling blue. If this guy was my best friend, I’d never worry again :)

A winner

I love running. I love podcasts. But it's been a long time since I found a a podcast I loved about running. Here it is!

Where to go when your friend's eyes glaze over listening about your latest race

Chris is a great interviewer, and he picks interesting people to talk running with. A great way to find out more about the people we stalk on Strava and Athlinks.
