The last time I did a big race which for me is 25k trail mountain run, I posted on instagram (are you following me on instagram by the way?) a photo of my favorite recovery meal – Hammer Nutrition Recoverite drink, strawberry flavored, and cheddar cheese flavored Kettle Chips. Today, we’ll learn why that’s not such an awesome idea, in case you thought it was.
An exploration of outdoor adventure as a metaphor for life. Every other week, we talk to players in the outdoor and nonprofit world; in land conservation, recreation, and education to uncover stories that make the world a better place.
Rather than prescription, these stories serve as lessons and inspiration. Past guests have won Olympic Gold (Kikkan Randall), are empowering survivors of sexual abuse and sexual assault through therapy and mountain biking (Jeannine Anders), and make adaptive sports accessible to the backcountry (Vasu Sojitra).
This show is for those who prefer to define your own idea of success and break trail to get there.

Liam Fitzgerald’s former job sets the bar for stressful jobs. As the lead avalanche forecaster for the Utah Department of Transportation (and the Little Cottonwood Canyon Highway – you know, the road that leads up to Alta and Snowbird), every day, he decided whether it was safe enough for the public to drive up or […]
We all have these turning points in life where one small decision unknowingly leads to another and your path diverges from the one you had envisioned. Then, there are moments, shall we call them epiphanies? When you realize that turning point was in fact, a turning point. And that it was meant to be. Ashley […]
Some of you knew what you wanted to do with your life at a young age while others of us (me included) sort of wandered into it. I’ve always been envious of the people who took the straight line from A and B but as I get older, I realize there is something to be […]
Hi everyone, we are BACK. After taking the past two months off the show to take some time to interview new guests, I’m excited to bring you Episode 33. I have been having so much fun talking to outdoor active professionals and athletes about what makes them tick, how they overcome hurdles and make ideas […]
I have some new year, new you inspiration for you today! Ash started Roam Events with everything she had – her savings and retirement plan. She was literally all in. And she took some calculated risks along the way to bring something new to the market – women specific bike events held around the country […]
Mark Paulsen evolved his NFL career into a passion – developing nutritional supplements and fuels that not only improve athletic performance, but contribute to a long and productive life. He founded The Wilderness Athlete, the authority on Outdoor Performance Nutrition®, to accomplish this mission and he has a great deal of wisdom to drop on […]
What I love about Dan’s travel blog is that he’s not really a “travel blogger.” He’s a brand consultant with a travel problem; a problem we should all wish to have. “Cool places. Good food. Nice sheets” is his tagline. Because he travels so much for work, and now for pleasure as well, he has […]
Who wants to dream with me of skiing in faraway places? I have a long conversation with Tracey Creedon, an Australian-born ski guide based in Hokkaido, Japan and New Zealand. And Australia depending on the time of year. Tracey is a soul sister, so to speak, who loves snow as much, if not more, than […]
Today you’ll get a cool perspective into what it’s like to be in the ski movies, what it takes to get there, and how to train for ski season. Chris is also out to deliver a message – and his projects reflect that. Watch for his upcoming film, produced by Salomon and with his partner […]
