We talked about mental performance with Addie, who just wrote a book on the subject, and we discussed Ryan and Addie's new joint venture, Out Trails, a running retreat for LGBTQ+ runners.

Rach CB ,

Simply wonderful

Hearing “Hey fam!” and “Love you all” brings a smile to my face each episode. Dylan brings such connection to each episode that even I, as an east coast trail newbie, feel like I’m part of something bigger and so important. I’ve also really enjoyed witnessing the evolution of Freetrail and can’t wait to see what the future (or next episode) holds!

Great show!

Dylan’s love of the sport is felt in every respectful interview he does. He delves in really interesting ways and his expertise is felt too. And I don’t hate that he’s just a really nice guy too.

Amazing!!

I’ve listened to most of Dylan’s podcasts since he launched Freetrail and even many before under the old brand. They are all really informative excellent interviews about ultra running and trail running with top-notch guests and well structured conversations. Lately, he has really stepped it up to an even higher level with interviews like Jim Walmsley, Ryan Sandes, Francois D’Hanene and Kilian Jornet - amazing interviews with the top trail runners in the world being open about their successes and failures and telling fascinating stories about all of their incredible adventures. Well done To Dylan for all that you are doing to bring these conversations to a broader audience.
