Like a Bigfoot Podcast #227: Rue Mckenrick — American Perimeter Trail, Designing a 12,000 Mile Trail

Rue Mckenrick is a backpacker with a long list of accomplishments, “Triple Crowner, Long Trailer, JMTer”, and thousands upon thousands of miles hiked.

Inspired by all of these hikes, he is now stepping up to his biggest challenge, creating and hiking the approximately 12,000 mile American Perimeter Trail, a loop that will circumnavigate the continental United States.

In this episode we talk about what is inspiring him to endure the miles and years to achieve such a tremendous goal.  He also shares adventures and misadventures from his last 15 months of continuous backpacking and exploring, including how he hiked through the initial COVID lockdown with near complete isolation by combining social isolating skills with traditional backpacking skills.

I hope you guys enjoy listening to Rue’s tails and help contribute to his creation of the American Perimeter Trail (links on how to help below)!!! Keep exploring!

Like a Bigfoot #226: Taylor Ross — Fastest Known Time Running Across Iowa

The best way to truly embrace and experience a place on earth is to travel it by foot.  By slowly wandering through an area rather than speeding by you get to see it and appreciate it for what it is.

This week’s guest wanted to immerse himself into his home state of Iowa.  So he decided to run across it.

As someone who grew up in Des Moines who “avoided running a full mile until three years ago” Taylor Ross stepped up to the challenge, ran down country roads, past cornfields and mooing cows from one end of Iowa to the other.  Along the way he experienced community, extreme resilience in the face of pain, the natural beauty of the midwest, and the creativity of such a personal accomplishment.

In this episode we hear all about his FKT and what it takes to run for 4 days 15 hours and 32 minutes.  This story rocks!!

Was it Heaven? Maybe…I mean, it was Iowa.

Hope you guys enjoy the episode!! Huge congrats to Taylor for an INCREDIBLE accomplishment!! We are so inspired by you!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #225: Angus Peacock 3 — “Conquering Leadership”, Finishing the 1 Million Step Challenge

This week we are welcoming Angus Peacock back to the show for a third time!

Angus is an executive coach and Director, a creative thought pioneer, and a performance specialist.  He’s also just a wonderfully introspective dude and one of my favorite people to feature on the podcast!

For years, in both the rugby world and the corporate world, Angus has had the opportunity to study notions of leadership (one of the topics I’m truly passionate about) Through his experiences he has seen a variety of viewpoints on leadership and has seen strategies both work and  struggle. He has observed the essential qualities of a good leadership and has become passionate about leading people in the most efficient way possible.

In this episode we chat about the traits we look for in successful leaders. Angus also catches us up on the final days of his One Million Step Challenge and we chat about how having a major project to work on motivates us and gifts us a purpose in our day to day.

This is an awesome episode that I cannot wait to share with you!!

I’ve really enjoyed chatting with Angus as he has the wonderful ability to shift my perspective and always leaves me with new thoughts and ideas to consider. I hope you have as many takeaways from this conversation as I did!
