Like a Bigfoot Podcast #89: Bigfoot Sightings 3 — Bigfoot 200 Book, 50k Adventures, Getting Ready for the PCT

This week we are catching back up with three of our previous Like a Bigfoot guests: Ryan Chukuske, Jason Sudduth, and Jennifer Mabus.

Ryan recently finished his Bigfoot 200 book “Bigfoot 200: Because, you know, why the **** not?” and is preparing it for publication.

Jason randomly called me last Friday and told me he’s camping in Hungry Mother State Park (actual name) and is running a trail marathon the next day.  He is also preparing for one of my favorite ultras ever, the Quest for the Crest 50k.

Jennifer is two days removed from beginning her hike of the 2,650 mile Pacific Crest Trail and is preparing her gear and her mind for the biggest adventure of her lifetime.

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #88: Desert RATS Stage Race — What it is, How I’m Training

If you’ve listened to recent episodes, I’ve mentioned that I’m signed up for the Desert RATS stage race.  This big crazy 6 day run from Fruita, Colorado to Moab, Utah this June.  Leading up to the event, a few episodes of the show will be devoted to helping me prepare for what will be the most difficult thing I’ve ever taken on.

On this week’s episode my friend and frequent Like a Bigfootian Brady Manriquez helps me do a deep dive on the event.

What is it? What hardships should I expect?  How freaking hot does the desert get in June?  And why does this one scare and excite me more than any other ultra?

Basically, Brady opens my eyes to everything I hadn’t really considered yet.  We talk training, equipment, race details, and a bunch more!

I’ve always said you should sign up for something that intimidates you.  Something just beyond your comfort zone that you yourself aren’t even sure is possible.  Using these big adventures as ways to expand your own belief in what you are capable of and all the possibilities available to you in this life.

I’m happy to be following my own advice on this one.

If you guys want to sing up for what is sure to be an adventure of a lifetime, check out the Gemini Adventures link below.  There you can find out all sorts of info about the Desert RATS and all their other ultra marathons.

Most importantly, I just sincerely wish you all find adventure wherever and whenever possible!  Have a great week!!
