A podcast about the women of Mountain, Trail, Ultra and Road running worlds. Hosted by Devon Yanko and Alison Naney.
In this episode, we sit down with woman of many hats, Addie Bracy, who literally wrote the book on mental training. She doles out a wealth of knowledge about mental training and performance, how she used a new mindset to win Run Rabbit Run 100, and also delves into how she’s increasing diversity in the larger running community, through her organization OutRun, and evolving our sport for the good.
In this episode we sit down with recent UTMB champion and course record holder, Courtney Dauwalter. Courtney is one of the most dominant ultrarunners on the scene right now and so we dig into how she handles and leverages failure, the mental game of ultrarunning, and basically try to glean some of her positivity and wisdom into our own running. Enjoy!
Alison and Devon Catch up!
We're back! After a summer of craziness including injury, wildfire galore, kids, and another big change (ha-we saved it for the end, so you need to listen to learn what!), Devon and Alison catch up on life. They get into the mindset around injury, listening (or not) to different narratives, 100 mile training, and what to expect from the podcast moving forward.
Zoe Rom is not just a trail and ultra runner, she is very involved in the outdoor space beyond that. She is writer and journalist. She is the editor-in-chief of Trail Runner magazine, host of the DNF podcast and an outspoken advocate for environmental and social justice. In this episode we not only dive into Zoe's running and career, but navigating tough conversations in the sport and standing up for progress and necessary change.
Kriste Peoples is a trail runner, writer, media producer, speaker, organizer, coach, board member of the ATRA, founder of Black Women’s Alliance (BWA) of Denver. She's also just a ray of sunshine and we had an absolute blast talking with her about her lifelong love of the outdoors, her community involvement and where change is necessary in our sport. Enjoy!
Most people know Meghan Hicks as the managing editor of the awesome IRunFar, but as we dive into in this episode, she is also an amazing athlete, super competitor and one driven human being. It was fun to have her on the other side of the mic for a change and get to know her better!
