Episode 118 - Today’ episode is with two guys named Dr. Bob.   The first, Dr. Bob Dalton, owns Highlands Chiropractic. We sat down over some noodles for this talk a few weeks ago. This Dr Bob came highly recommended from several people when I told them about the debilitating pain I was experiencing while running. He has extremely unconventional methods that get phenomenal results. Some patients have seen him for 20 plus years and many drive an hour or more to his office which is walk in only (no appointments). We have a great chat about running, his interesting methods, why people see him when everything else fails, and much more.   The second interview is with Doctor Robert Pruni. He has been on American Ninja Warrior on two seasons and owns NinjaKour, a massive warehouse converted to a crossfit gym and ANW obstacle playhouse. We talk about how he trains, his advice for getting on ANW, and what cross fitters need to un-learn when they want to become Ninjas. He also treated some big rock stars back in the day so we touch on that.   Today’s episode is brought to you by Savage Race.

(Episode 60) I met Jason Pittman earlier this year through a mutual friend, and we decided to go for an early morning run. I was surprised to discover that Jason had spent the last 15 years working in the Atlanta rock and hip-hop scene. He produced, managed and booked everyone imaginable. His list of heavy hitters includes: Lil John, Bone Crusher, Ying Yang Twins, Too $hort, and David Banner. Find out all of the ways that Jason stayed in the mix. Also hear about his big break in 2007, producing the Shop Boyz mega hit "Party Like A Rockstar".

You probably don't know Pete Coleman. You don't know him because he is that rare bird that doesn't tell the world about every accomplishment (or attempt) on social media. So allow me to do it. He's done The Killington Beast and UltraBeast on back to back days, finished multiple Spartan/Peak Death Races, The Georgia Death Race, and most recently earned a Belt Buckle at Western States. On this episode, we talk about how he trained for and completed one of the hardest races in the world, The Western States 100 mile race.

Episode 96 - Val Smith and "Crazy" Pete Coleman trained very hard leading up to the 2014 Summer Death Race. This resulted in both of them finishing and getting skulls. Matt B. sat down with them for some dinner conversation a few weeks after the event. Topics include some insight into the shitshow that was Saturday night, what they did over at Peter Borden’s on Sunday, how deep they had to deep to finish and if they ever thought the race would end. There is also some never heard before bonus footage from the crew that saved Matt B. and Flo from their adventure we learned about in the last episode. Today’s episode is sponsored by MudGear.
Episode 69-In today's show, we revisit a couple of events from previous episodes. Sam Abbitt is the founder and CEO of Savage Race. We first met him back on Episode 7 in July of 2012. Since then, Savage has put on many successful races in several markets. We catch up with Sam to find out what they are doing right and what is next. Next we catch up with Hunter Brucks, the new "man with the plan" over at Extreme Nation. EN has resurfaced and their first event is scheduled near Tampa, Florida in February of 2014. Hunter tells me they still plan on having large payouts ($40k) at each race. Also, Hobie Call and his vision of a spectator friendly "coliseum" style course are still part of the plan. Listen in to find out what's going to be different this time around and how they plan to make it a success.

Episode 128 - Up first on today's show is an interview with Pat Patterson, race director from Ragnar Trail Relays. We ran the Georgia stop of that event for the 2nd straight year, and despite some serious rain, had a great time. The next set of interviews are from Georgia's Spring Savage Race. After interviewing "Operations Manager", Garfield Griffiths , we decided to take a slightly different approach to this episode. Rather than talking to all of the top finishers, we decided instead to talk to some different kinds of folks. Starting with the owner of the property, and then several everyday finishers to see what they thought of the race. Enjoy.

Episode 180 - Tough Mudder announced several changes to this year's team competition at World's Toughest Mudder. We got Nolan Kombol on the phone as quickly as we could. Nolan's been with Tough Mudder since July of 2010. His current title is Senior Director of Product, which means, he and his team are responsible for your on course experience and all of the obstacles that go with it. We go into the new changes and answer some questions including: What is the total payout for a winning team that crosses 100 miles? Legionnaire status: Is it laps or event days? Do two Tough Mudder Halves equal a Whole? The second half of the episode has us sit down with 2015 WTM male champ Chad Trammell to talk about last year's wild ride, what his plans are for this year, and some ideas he has that could make WTM much more interesting.

(and how well he performs!) In this conversation, we attack such burning questions as: How does he do so many darn races and can you race too much? Which costume and treadmill records are important to him? What are his exercise replacements when he does get running injuries? What was it like to be a Runner's World cover finalist? What are his favorite podcasts to listen to while running?  Who is he going to drop from his fantasy football team? Today's show is sponsored by: Men's Health Urbanathlon.

Episode 175 - On today's program, we attempt to answer that burning OCR question: What exactly is a race director and what does he do?

We don't want to spoil almost an hour of really good conversation, but one thing is clear - No one person makes the magic happen.
