Join Scotty and ultra legend Charlie Engle as they discuss his soon to be released book "Running Man : A Memoir." The book chronicles Charlie's life: growing up with large track shoes to fill, falling in love with alcohol and marathoning and eventually crack. Recovery. His time in prison. It's all there in this intimate one on one. (Special thanks to Tony for producing it entirely on the Metra and getting it up a few hours later).
All kidding aside, join Scotty and Dusty as they sit down (sober) for a more serious one on one story of Dusty's life and times, from childhood to present, including his time with Scott Jurek, his pacing gigs, his ski and run career and his struggles with Lyme disease.
Join Scotty, Sam, Tony and Aaron for a fun filled night of meeting the listeners of the show (Sorry we missed you Amanda J). We talk about cats giving kidney transplants, drug testing, the birth of our Reddit page, online dating and, as a special bonus we chat with Sam's mom.
We know these shows can be cheesy. But we find them to be fun. Enjoy!
Join Scotty on a long run with John Storkamp. John is a speedster, race director (Superior 100, Zumbro 100 among others) a ten time Arrowhead 135 Finisher, Finisher of the Iditarod Trail Invitational (350 miler version). He's also sober and interesting as hell!!!
Join The entire gang for a return visit by probably the greatest pacer that ever lived - Dusty Olson!! We confirm the fact that he's safe and a pacifist. We talk about what he's been up to and what's next. Note: designated drivers were obtained for this show.
Take a two hour long run with Scotty and 100 mile master Susan Donnelly. Hear the story about how a picture of Ann Trason inspired Susan to run 88 100 mile races now, all over the country and world. She's a life coach. She's been around the sport for quite some time. We can learn a ton from her. She's a sheer delight!
Join Scotty, Sam, Tony and former guest Natalie Hildebrandt (pinch hitting for Aaron) as they sit down with Jennifer Heinton...who's done a zillion marathons, countless triathlons, and just doesn't like the trails. They also dissect Scotty's Comrades performance, and much much more.
Join Scotty and Ultra Runner Podcast host Eric Schranz on a long run. Scotty has been chasing Eric for an interview since he first decided to do long run on on one interviews. Eric has interviewed everyone in the ultra scene ver the past five years, he's also an interesting guy, runner and family man. It's a nice look into the life of a Podcaster through another Podcaster.
Join Scotty, Sam and Aaron for Ten Junk Miles with Jean Lenard and Adam Benkers. Jean and Adam both finished the Kettle Moraine 100 Mile race June 4, along with Sam. The first 100 mile race completed by all three! They are also joined by Eric Skocaj who recently was the only finisher at the Endurance Society 888K challenge. Sam's single and the guys want to play dating game. There are a few tangents. Kat's Kudos and so much more!
Take a long run with Sam and Bonnie Busch, AKA Bonnie Badass. Bonnie is a legend in the Midwest Ultramarathon community, having tackled it all-- from Badwater to Arrowhead. She most recently won the Potawatomi 100 Miler, and earned her 1,000 mile buckle. We talk about how she got into running, and advice she has for young females just getting into the sport. Scotty, Sam, and Bonnie dive deeper into the world of Winter Ultras-- a TJM favorite topic.
