Podcast of behind the scenes at VR

I love all the race guide podcasts…even when I’m not going to that race! And to answer Colleen and Lyle’s question in the Glacier guide, I would listen to any podcast of them talking about VR! Or really anything! The two of them are very entertaining!!

Behind The Scenes Please!

Just listened to the Glacier Half episode, not because I am running this race, I just really like to hear all the info and stories you share. I listen to all the episodes to gauge whether it may be a race I am interested in down the road. In this episode you asked if we would be interested in an episode dedicated to behind the scenes or other stories. Yes!! I love all the stories you share!

Bryce 2021 preview?

I love your podcast! Any chance of a preview/what to expect 2021 Bryce Canyon, maybe with some tips for newbies like weather prep, what terrain surfaces to expect, good shoe choices, etc?
