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.

What questions do you have for Dr. Mark?  Email Dr. Mark your questions for an upcoming podcast.

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.
