Transforming Your Life Through Adventure with Sunny Stroer
Sunny Stroer used to be a strategy consultant, but turned her back on material possessions so she could run and climb full-time instead.
Sunny's specialty is the high altitude endurance realm; she holds speed records on Aconcagua and on the Annapurna Circuit. She is a true renaissance person.
We talk with Sunny about her transformation from couch potato to endurance icon and how how Sunny is now paying that transformation forward.
The LeadBoat Challenge with special guests Alison Tetrick & Mark Satkiewicz
What happens when you combine one of the most historic mountain bike races with one of the hottest new gravel races? You get the LeadBoat Challenge! In this special edition episode of the Pinnacle Podcast, hosts Yuri Hauswald and Elden “Fatty” Nelson sit down with gravel-legend Alison Tetrick and SBT GRVL founder Mark Satkiewicz to talk about why a handful of cyclists have decide to take on both the Leadville 100 MTB and the SBT GRVL back-to-back.
Everest Lightning Ascent With Roxanne Vogel
Roxanne Vogel, the Nutrition & Performance Research Manager at GU Energy Labs, had a crazy dream: go from her home in California to the summit of Mt Everest and then back home to California — in just two weeks. Yuri and Fatty talk with Roxy about how she trained for and executed this incredible "lightning ascent" of Everest. It's an amazing story you will NOT want to miss!
Farm to Fork Fondo with Tyler Wren
(Earlier upload of this issue had audio issues; listen to this version instead.) One question every pro athlete has to consider is, "What am I going to do when I retire?" The way Tyler's gone about it is incredibly inspiring: he's invented the "Farm to Fork Fondo" series — a socially-conscious athlete / foodie's bucket-list ride if there's every been one.
BONUS EPISODE: A Live Conversation with Katie Arnold + Another Mother Runner
We teamed up with Sarah Bowen Shea of Another Mother Runner for a LIVE conversation with GU Crew runner Katie Arnold. Last year, Katie won the prestigious Leadville Trail 100 Run, and she just released a memoir titled Running Home.
We talk about her running career, life, and how the motion of running helped her get out of “that worry brain” after her father’s death from cancer and during the early years of motherhood. She also talks about taping into the “flow state” and tells us what it mean
YiOu Wang: Running Anywhere and Everywhere
YiOu Wang is a professional trail and ultra runner. She's a 2-time winner of the Lake Sonoma 50 mile, the 2017 Trail 50Km National Champion and a 2-time Marathon Olympic Trials Qualifier. Yuri and Fatty kick off season 3 of The GU Energy Labs Pinnacle Podcast by chatting with YiOu about running while traveling (YiOu didn't spend more than 10 days in one place in 2018), learning from experience, and how to use a tree to stop yourself. Don't miss this awesome episode!
