    David Laney | Live & Learn

    David Laney has long been a top performer and fan favorite in trail and ultrarunning. We've been buddies since 2013 when we took a fun road trip to the Grand Canyon -- a key moment that set David down the road that has led to such a great career. We talk about that memory, David's amazing performance at the 2015 UTMB, the ups and downs he's had since, and his recent change in sponsorship -- moving from Nike to Craft Sportswear. Hope you enjoy!

    Joe Grant | Mountain Artist

    Joe Grant | Mountain Artist

    Joe Grant is an ultrarunner and outdoor enthusiast from Durango, CO. His approach to mountain sport is as artistic as it is athletic. He's known not only for being a great runner, but also as a creative story teller and philosophical adventurer. Joe and I go way back and I have a tremendous amount of admiration for him. He was a personal inspiration of mine upon my introduction to ultrarunning and he's been a good friend since.
     
    In this convo, we talk about Joe's move to Durango from Boulder, reminisce about the revolution in ultrarunning in the early 2010s, how the sport has changed in the last decade, his recent Home to Home project, his artistic approach and process of creating the adventures he's tackled in his career, and much more.
