Great Podcast

As an extreme athlete turned mom running is my go to sport now and I am a total amateur wanna be trail and ultra runner. My runs are my ‘me time’ and have replaced my BASE jumping and aerobatic flying missions haha. I absolutely love the mental side of running and listening to books and podcasts and am SO happy to find this podcast after listening to Running Man and watching Crossing the Sahara. Keep it up guys! I’ve seen a lot of fellow athletes turned parents begin podcasting and I think it is an awesome way to stay connected and challenged.

Freaking amazing!

Trail talk with Luis and Charlie is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard, no matter what the subject. These dudes rock like Elvis. The young Elvis, not the bloated pill popper.

Seriously the internet machine is full of content but this is worth your time. If you haven’t listened to the episodes where they interview each other then stop and right here right now give them a listen.

You’ll learn about trail running fo sho but you’ll learn about life even more. And about a couple cool dudes who I wanna hang with. I want to grab some tacos and a cerveza at Efrens in Oceano and and a big ol pink box of donuts at slocodo in San Luis Obispo with Charlie and then go run it out.

Except I’m not a runner - I just became obsessed with ultramarathon videos on YouTube 2 months ago then heard their trail running stories and now I want to do my own story: 0 to 100...6 months. Where I go from not being a runner to running 100 miles in 6 months- born to run ultra looks like its 6 months from now so I hope I’ll see Luis there. What a cool dude.

And with Charlie, anybody who’s as old as me and can use the final rap battle in 8 mile as a model of openness and self examination is a dang boss.

I love the podcast and you will too.

Great Content

The entire episodes are always great but the awkward send offs are my fave. Keep up the good work, boys!
