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 8 - Thunder Squad Interviews: Colin Trower

Episode 8 - Thunder Squad Interviews: Colin Trower

This episode is the start of a special series we’ll be doing.  We’re hoping to interview each of our TRT store ambassadors and have them share their stories with us.  We’ve drawn a ton of inspiration from them and their stories, so we hope to give you all the chance to do the same.

In this episode, we talk with one of our ambassadors, Colin Trower. This is Colin’s second year being one of our “Thunder Squad Ambassadors," and Colin describes how running and revamping his nutrition has dramatically improved his quality of life.  We hear about how he left a corporate job in Pennsylvania to travel in a RV for the last three years with his wife and sons as they looked for adventure, ran ultramarathons, and fell in love with Silverton, Colorado.  

During the Q&A with Dr. Mark, we discuss warm-up exercises to keep you loose and limber (see "A, B, C, D Skips videos in the show notes for examples.)

Email Dr. Mark your questions for an upcoming podcast.
