Holiday Special Show – Lance Armstrong in Ultrarunning

IMG_0995Ho Ho Ho, whatever. Welcome to our annual holiday special Elevation Trail show. So many topics, so little time. Today we rant about holiday trips, Donald Trump spring water, which is specially filtered through his hair, Lance Armstrong in ultrarunning, global climate change, and much more.

Many people have supplies and plans in place in case the world ends. I have a backpack and passport ready in case Trump is elected.

We’re giving away an Elevation Trail trucker hat and two Run Steep, Get High beenie caps. Just comment here about the show and you’re entered for the drawing.

Didn’t really have a photo to go with today’s show, so here are Cooper and Pippit going for a daily ride.

It’s that time of year when nostalgic thoughts creep into our minds. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of room in our minds, so we need to discuss our strange thoughts in public. Welcome to one of our normal, random conversations.

Reading material for next week’s show: Craigslist

Alisha Edmiston – Finding Yourself

AE

Hoka runner, Alisha Edmiston

Join us here on Elevation Trail as we chat with Alisha Edmiston, former pro cyclist, elite runner, and object (one of) of Gary’s stalking activities. It turned into a fascinating show of figuring out who we are, what makes us happy, and how we see ourselves. Oh, and we chat about my gym’s mens locker room, Gary’s starvation diet, and tips on how to meet girls.

Garry Millburn Interview – Conquering Near Fatal Accident

2011

2011

World class cyclist, Garry Millburn, joins us today on Elevation Trail. He’s currently on a world tour with his new wife, Fiona, visiting beautiful areas while racing bikes. Four years ago he was involved in a head on collision with a car that nearly took his life and left him with a couple years of rehab. Now he’s back pushing the limits in races and riding.

Gary and I also talk a bit about PEDs in sports and his recent (very neat) videocast discussion on the same topic.

Thanks for listening.
