Like a Bigfoot Podcast #270: James Adamson — Adventure Filmmaking and the Power of Creativity

This week we have a great conversation with my friend James Adamson!! James is a filmmaker, and athlete and an adventurer who has filmed epic footage all over the world through his company Dropmedia.tv.

Recently James was a part of the film “Fastest For Now” which documents Kait Boyle, Kurt Refsnider and Lael Wilcox’s record setting ride on the Kokopelli Trail. James also was our director of photography for our future film about the Desert RATS Stage Race in which I was honored to work alongside and learn from such a wonderful person!

In this episode we talk all about creativity, collaboration, passion, perspective as James shares stories from different projects he has worked on along with some of the philosophies he has developed along the way!

I truly hope you enjoy the episode as I really look up to James!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #269: Kate Coward — The Double DAM, Biking nearly 500 miles in 48 hours

This week we are chatting with ultra endurance athlete Kate Coward about her recent double of the gravel bike race Day Across Minnesota!! Kate had 48 hours to bike nearly 500 miles as she went across the entire state not once but twice!!

We also chat about her double Arrowhead 135 on foot with Kari Gibbons. Taking place in Northern Minnesota in the coldest part of winter, the event is one of the coldest, most difficult ultras in the United States and Kate and Kari completed the whole course and then turned around and completed it again. It’s an epic tale of adventure!!

Beyond adventures, Kate is a mother and a coach who is able to fit training into her busy schedule!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #268: Samantha Pruitt — 1,000 Miles to Light, Thriving Instead of Grinding

This week we are talking with the incredible Samantha Pruitt (athlete, entrepreneur, and host of the Endurance Town USA Podcast) about her recent adventure running “1,000 Miles to Light” in Australia!!

Samantha is a huge inspiration of mine who has taken on huge ultra endurance challenges over the last twenty years. Through those challenges she has developed a powerful mindset that helps her push her limits and guide others towards unlocking their untapped potential!

This is a wonderful conversation where we talk all about her journey, discuss why we should all seek to “Thrive” versus “Grind”, and then we get into the story of her 1,000 Miles to Light adventure in which four Team USA athletes (competed against four Team Australia athletes in a relay that took each athlete into the deep depths of their mind, body and spirit.

Enjoy the episode!! I hope you are inspired by Samantha as I am!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #267: Alyssa Clark 2 — Victory at the Ouray 100

This week we are bringing back Alyssa Clark to chat all about her win at the rugged and challenging Ouray 100!!!

The Ouray 100 has over 40,000ft of elevation gain over the course of 100 miles and sends runners exploring one of the prettiest areas in all of Colorado. The course profile looks absolutely insane and Alyssa not only finished the race but won the whole thing.

In this episode Alyssa, her husband and crew Codi and her pacer Anna Albrecht (who was on episode #196 of this podcast) share their experience taking this on! From lightning storms to extreme exhaustion, this one has it all!

Hope you all enjoy the podcast! Alyssa is absolutely incredible and will be taking on the Tor Des Geants in a few weeks so we can all root her on! Thanks to Cori and Anna for coming on too, I had an absolute blast!

SIDE NOTE: Last time she came on the podcast Alyssa talked about her 95 marathons in 95 straight days and now she has become an official Guiness Book of World Records holder for that endeavor.
