Episode 18 - Chris Looney on Creating Your Own Adventure

Episode 18 - Chris Looney on Creating Your Own Adventure

Chris Looney stopped by Two Rivers Treads to share stories of his adventures thru-hiking and running on the Appalachian Trail, and how creativity has enabled him to find adventures this year even when races are cancelled.  From running a marathon in his backyard (literally!) to creating his own 100mi trail run, this quieter time has created space to try something new.

As a high school science teacher, we also hear his thoughts on the upcoming school year as teachers and students navigate COVID and virtual learning.  

Chris also shares how his cure for just about any problem on the trail comes in a small package with brown wrapping.  

Bonus! Chris brought his guitar along and shares some music he wrote, inspired by the mountains and trails.

Episode 13 - Thunder Squad Interviews: Casey Fisher

Episode 13 - Thunder Squad Interviews: Casey Fisher

September was a crazy month!  We're getting back in the swing of things and sharing our adventures - Dr. Mark's travels around the globe sharing his medical expertise, another amazing Freedom's Run event, and Sarah's PR at the 2019 Grindstone 100 miler.  

We also talk about the direction performance-enhancing shoes is taking the sport of running in light of the recently set (albeit, unofficial) marathon world record time and the (very official) women's marathon record time.  

Then we get a chance to chat it up with local Thunder Squad TRT ambassador Casey Fisher about his recent finishes on the No Business 100, Freedom's Run, Miner's Lady, and some DNFs along the way.  It was super helpful to hear his take on post-ultra recovery too.  

If you want to reach out to Casey with any questions or for some helpful info on running, whether ultras or your first 5k, feel free to reach out to him by e-mail caseywfisher@gmail.com. Or you can find him on instagram @ultra_flash or Facebook: Casey Fisher.
