STIF:04 – Fun

Megan & Darrell recap the mid-August race weekend of Anchor Down Ultramarathon and the Falmouth Road Race. They talk about each race and the experience they each had at each. The conversation moves to comparing the big differences between the two experiences, they focus on the one BIG difference…and its what everything circles back around to…fun.

Is there a difference between “fun”, “enjoyment”, and “satisfaction”? Can they exist independently? Is it enough to keep you running (or working out period)? Let’s figure it out.

 

You can learn more about Anchor Down Ultramarathon at www.AnchorDownUltra.com, and check out www.RunTrueNorth.com to learn about their company and other events (including my favorite – Narragansett Summer Running Festival!).

 

You can find out more about the Falmouth Road Race at www.FalmouthRoadRace.com.

Different and Same

The backstory

Six years ago I met a man and his son.  His son was eleven years old, wiry, and pretty funny. He was a normal kid. He had a prosthetic for his right leg.  He wrestled.  I trained them both together and have for the last 6 years.  They are awesome people.

 

I have worked with clients, and still do, with MS, Cerebral Palsy, one leg, no legs, and many other forms of human that have challenged and excited me.  My default, work them harder (as is necessary and often harder than they ever have) and treat them more like an athlete than they have ever been treated.  It empowers them, challenges me and everyone is happy.  The science of exercise and performance can be artful with a little creativity.  Blake, in this video, was no different.  He is a wrestler so he knows how to work hard but never harder than during sessions with his pops.

 

Earlier this summer they brought up hiking a 14er, one of Colorado’s 57 peaks over 14,000 feet. I had led many groups up one of the beginner peaks and was pumped to put together a training plan for them.  For six week we worked on hills for the up and the downs.

 

Built eccentric strength for the downhill and built on top of his fitness for the ups.
An early morning two days before Blake’s first day of his senior year in high school we hit the trailhead at 7 am.  By 9:15 we had summited.  He killed it.  I videoed a bunch of it and decided that the years of knowing and training him should be put into a short video.  I used what limited editing skills I had and put all my heart into the lyrics and narration.  Below is what came of it.   Hope you enjoy and if you were on the fence, you may now realize that everyone is an athlete, EVERYONE!

Ultra Dirt: 10 Stop being afraid of being afraid… listen up!

In this episode of UltraDirt, we chat to the positively inspiring Spring McClurg.

Her authenticity and adoration for the mountains is felt in everything she says and does. Although raised in the Rockies, the mountains did not ‘find her’ until later in life.

Her and her husband reset their life in Squamish and decided to embrace the mountain life in their new community. Their story is encouraging and humbling. Spring is now about trying to push past mental and physical barriers to see what is really possible. Oh, and she’s funny too. She teaches us to “commit or go home – but don’t hesitate.”
