Thank You!!

I had never run a competitive race before this year, not even a 5k. I’m 31 and have been a runner on and off for about 10 years now, but I’ve always wanted to get into endurance racing. After a quick internet search, and to my shock, I found a wealth of ultra races around me in Ohio. I selected a 50k that was two months away, signed up, and started to train immediately. Thankfully I stumbled upon TRN during my first week of training and became quite addicted. I was listening to about 10 TRN episodes a week during the last two months. Scott and Don and all their amazing guests more than prepared me for my first ultra. I finished my first 50k in just over 6 hours and couldn’t have been happier. What a wealth of information this podcast has been for me! I can’t thank you guys enough for what you do for this amazing sport. I’ve signed up for 3 more ultras this year, and can’t wait to toe the line for my first 100 miler in the future. It’s great to be a part of this incredible Tribe. Thanks again Scott and Don!

Improved from 1 star to 2 stars! Audio quality is crap. Host cuts off guests’ interesting responses

The August 10, 2019 podcast was the first time I’ve listened since writing the original 1-star review a few months ago. I was pleasantly surprised to hear they dumped Skype. I almost bumped them up to 3 stars because of that alone, but decided to wait a few weeks first to make sure the program really has improved. I’ll be listening. I’m leaving the old review below so they don’t forget:

Inconsistent volume levels between episodes and between different people talking in the same episodes. Turn the volume to max and you still can’t hear some guests, while some of the people talking will blow out your eardrums. The most common guest interview platform is Skype, which frequently cuts out and adds to the volume issues.
One of the hosts constantly cuts off guests mid answer to interject his blathering and oft-repeated opinions.
Lack of any editing is an ongoing bit that would be funny, except it means you’re forced to listen to guests’ dogs barking and their car keys jingling and cars beeping and kids screaming in the background as they distractedly stutter and repeat themselves on air.

Enjoyable but too long and volume is recorded way too low

I do enjoy this podcast but they do run a little to long. And the worst thing about this podcast is that it is recorded at a much lower volume than my other podcasts. If there is much background noise even with AirPods in and the volume all the way up I can’t hear them. Please please record at higher volume.
