Show Notes

Last week I once again lit the beacons and let folks know I'd do another AMA if there were enough questions. In this second edition, I answer the following questions:

  • What does the East Coast need to do to progress trail running?
  • What is on your trail running media wishlist?
  • What can we do to make ultrarunning events more exciting to follow or watch?
  • What is something you would like to see changed in our sport?
  • What else is on your ultrarunning wishlist?
     

Timestamps:

  • (0:17) - the biggest issue for the east coast trail running scene
  • (1:56) - the competitive advantages of east coast trail running
  • (3:05) - rural locations over metro locations for training
  • (4:18) - combining reality tv format with underdog narrative for new ultrarunning content
