Like a Bigfoot Podcast #261: Lucja Leonard — Mohican 100 and Taking on the Triple Crown of 200s

This week we are chatting with Lucja Leonard about her recent finish of the Mohican 100, her history as an ultra runner and her upcoming challenge taking on the triple crown of 200s!!

Lucja recently went back to the Mohican 100 in Ohio to complete the very first 100 she attempted. In this episode we chat all about her experience getting payback on this race before diving into stage racing and how she is training for her upcoming attempt at tackling Bigfoot, Tahoe and Moab.

We also talked briefly about crewing her husband Dion at the Badwater 135 (the race just finished and we recorded this episode a few weeks ago! I’m happy to report that Dion placed 6th in a very stacked field in a ridiculously hard ultra marathon).

Hope you guys enjoy the episode!!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #260: Thomas Mullins 2 — Taking Inventory, Battling the Cocodona 250

This week we welcome back one of my favorite people in the world Thomas Mullins!

Thomas is an excellent ultrarunner and adventurer who has taught me more about the sport than anyone else. He is a wealth of knowledge and always seems so cool and collected during these epic adventures.

As a multitime 200 miler finisher it was really interesting to get his perspective on the newly created Cocodona 250. The race seems like an absolute beast that takes runners 250 miles through the rugged deserts and mountains of Arizona. With a stoic sense of relentless forward progress, Thomas battled his way through what seems like an extremely difficult beginning 60 miles, possible ufo sightings (that’s a first for the show!), running out of water and brief battles of negative self talk.

He is a huge proponent of slowing down and taking inventory during these big adventures and this episode highlights how that strategy pays off big time!!

It’s hard to express how much I appreciate this dude! I’m so glad our paths crossed! Much love buddy!

Hope you enjoy this episode!!
