Like a Bigfoot Podcast #215: Adam Casey 4 — Never Summer 100K, Trail Running in Peru

This week I am very excited and honored to bring back one of my favorite guests for the show, trail runner, skydiver and all around awesome dude Adam Casey!

Over the last few months, Adam has been putting in some pretty awesome high altitude training in order to finish the difficult Never Summer 100k in Northern Colorado, a race featuring 14,250 ft of elevation gain.  The race is through some of the most beautiful scenery in the state and is definitely on my bucket list!!

In this episode Adam chats all about his training, the ups and downs of the race, and shares tales from the few months he spent trail running through the jungles of Peru!

Adam is a great dude who truly represents resilience and grit and it shows in his dedication to his ultrarunning.  I really enjoyed catching up with him and hope you guys appreciate this episode as much as I did!!

Like a Bigfoot #214: Coree Woltering — Team Onyx & Eco Challenge Fiji, Ice Age Trail FKT

This week’s guest is the incredible ultra runner Coree Woltering!!

Coree recently set the FKT on the 1,200 mile Ice Age Trail through Wisconsin, completing it in 21 days, 13 hours, and 35 minutes.  He also is featured on the new Amazon Series “World’s Toughest Race: Eco Challenge Fiji” as a member of Team Onyx, the first all-African American team in expedition racing.

In this episode we chat all about these two huge events!! Coree shares his perspective as an elite ultra runner taking on his first adventure race and the challenges faced along the way.  The race looks incredibly difficult and Team Onyx is one of the inspiring groups featured throughout the show.

He also goes into the ups and downs of the Ice Age Trail FKT- a super secret trick to handle trails with crazy amount of ticks, his go-tos when fueling with gas station food, how to breakdown gigantic goals, why you should always listen to Pete Kostelnick’s advice on ankle recovery, and how accepting pain and staying level headed through adversity helped him achieve his goal.

This episode was an absolute blast to record!! Coree is awesome and is a huge inspiration!

I also wanted to thank Adam Casey for rejoining the show to co-host this week!!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #213: Cameron Dorn 2 — Step Up World Record, Climbing Remote Mountains in Uganda

Last time he was on the show, Cameron Dorn told us all about his experience setting the burpee 24 hour world record (yup..you read that right, nonstop burpees for 24 hours!!), this week he’s back having just set a new world record of 10,920 step ups in 8 hours!!!

In this episode we chat all about his experience stepping up and down in his apartment for 8 hours, what it was like for him to climb some of the most remote peaks in Africa, his passion for exploring, both the world and his personal limits, and one of our favorite documentaries of all time “King of Kong”.

Buckle up because this is a fantastic episode with one of the most extraordinary dudes I have ever met!! (Backstory- I raced with Cameron during a 50k in the Black Mountains of North Carolina and if you ever meet him you pretty quickly understand you are in the presence of a very unique and inspiring human being!)

Hope you all enjoy the episode as much as I did! Be sure to check out his company

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #212: Jeffrey James Binney — His Film “Once is Enough”, Becoming an Ultrarunner

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”  – Mae West

This week we are chatting all about the adventure documentary “Once is Enough” with ultrarunner, filmmaker, comedian and super awesome dude Jeffrey James Binney!!!

A few weeks ago I watched Jeffrey’s film on Amazon Prime and was captivated by his ability to capture everything I love about endurance sports- from the often hilariously weird aspects to the heartbreaking, inspiring, uplifting reasons people push themselves to the limit.  It is presented in a really unique format as it bounces back and forth from his hilarious one man show, standup routine pointing out the bizarreness of a 100 mile race to a more serious, emotional one on one interview digging into his why as you watch him transform from non-runner to ultra marathoner.

The logline for the film perfectly sums it up: “After losing his mom to obesity-caused heart disease, a 32 year old husky ginger comedian and vegan son-of-a-pig-farmer sets out to lose 100lbs and run one of the world’s most difficult 100 mile ultramarathons…and lives to tell jokes about it.”

While sitting in the hospital, Jeffrey picked up Trail Runner Magazine, read an article about Leadville 100, thought “that sounds like a good idea” and then had the boldness to go chase his dream.

The movie is phenomenal and I absolutely loved chatting with Jeffrey for the show!! Be sure to check out “Once is Enough”!! I promise you that you will love it!!
