On the podcast today we have Jay Korff who produced the film “Endure” about Tom Mitchell’s experience at the Tahoe 200 and Tom’s goal of raising awareness and money for childhood cancer. Watching this film stirs an insane amount of emotion, so if you don’t like to cry in front of others, you might want to watch this one in private.
Today we’ve got an absolute beast joining us on the podcast.

Today we’re digging into stage racing a bit. I’ve had many friends that have run TransRockies and just rave about the communal experience and fun vibe that it brings to the sport, but never experienced this myself. Aside from running, Transrockies puts on 6 other events, both run and ride, all with an epic destination and experience in mind. So today we’re delighted to have Aaron McConnell, the CEO of Transrockies, to discuss his events, what they bring to the community, and why everyone should go big.
