My Cocodona Redemption was an experience in planning, preparation, and prevention. But it was also a net sum energy equation and using the energy in the system as efficiently as possible. That meant eating, drinking, moving, resting, and sleeping on a regular rigid schedule to get the energy in and moving efficiently during the days and nights. One of the quickest ways to loose energy during the day is from solar rays.  Many of you asked, why is he wearing a hoodie and what is with the umbrella? Well, it again comes down to energy. When the sun is on your skin or blazing through your non-UPF-protected clothing your body responds to protect itself. To control your body temperature, you sweat. The cooling process requires energy and sweating leads to water and salt loss. So getting overheated and sunburnt leads to all sorts of problems. And with a 5-day race, you cannot afford to lose anything. This gear review focuses on the items I used to preserve my energy. Sunbrella - Lightrek Hiking (Chrome) Umbrella - Gossamer GearSun Hoodie - Sun-Protective Fabric Men's Hoodies | REI Co-opSun Hoodie - Search results: hoodies | Columbia SportswearSun Hoodie - Realtree CamoGloves - outdoorresearch.comVest - GOREWEARPoles - Trekking Poles | Hiking Poles | Black Diamond EquipmentBackpack - blackdiamondequipment.comRecovery - R8 Plus Deep Tissue Massage Muscle Roller | ROLL RecoverySnacks - eatbobos.comSocks - Shop All Socks | Injinji Performance ToesocksPrana Stretch Zion Pant II - prAna---Your hosts: Jessica Harris / Greg Larkin / Mike Turner Intro/outro music: Joseph McDade - Elevation: https://josephmcdade.com/music/elevationThe Mile 99 Interview is creating podcast episodes | PatreonVenmo | The Mile 99 InterviewSupport the show
After his first ever DNF at the inaugural Cocadona 250 in 2021, Mike Turner, co-host of The Mile 99 Interview podcast and "Regular Guy Ultrarunner" stormed back into his training with a burning desire to fix what went wrong.  He reinvented his entire plan, hired trainers, researched the "Ultra Lean", spoke to doctors, hit mega vert, cross-trained, dramatically changed his diet and most importantly relentlessly studied how to tackle this new distance.   With trusty Sun-brella in hand, he assembled a support team with his daughter at the helm and friends of new and old to pace him along the way. From the Chaparral, Piñon, Juniper, and Ponderosa forest that surrounds Prescott, Arizona, over the sunburned cow pastures of Fain Ranch, up the rugged Mingus Mountain, through the historic towns of Jerome and Sedona, forging rivers, summiting the infamous Mount Elden, to the finish line in Flagstaff; Mike’s 108-hour journey took meticulously executing everything he had ever learned about ultrarunning.  Tune in to this extra-special episode with our friend and newly-buckled Cocadona 250 finisher to hear the story of his amazing week-long adventure; Cocadona Redemption, a journey of planning, preparation, and prevention.---Your hosts: Jessica Harris / Greg Larkin / Mike Turner Intro/outro music: Joseph McDade - Elevation: https://josephmcdade.com/music/elevationThe Mile 99 Interview is creating podcast episodes | PatreonVenmo | The Mile 99 InterviewSupport the show

However, luck was not on her side that day and she had to be pulled from the course by helicopter!

Folsom runner Jason Davis joined us during a live recording session late in 2021 at The Aid Station in Auburn, CA. He was a pivotal figure in the Western States Endurance Run in 2006 when he took over pacing duties for an up and coming runner from Seattle named Brian Morrison.Brian was leading the race in the final miles and was paced by none other than Scott Jurek, previous seven-time winner of the race. Scott requested a new pacer for Brian in the final miles, and Jason was tapped for the role. Due to a series of difficulties in the very final mile of the race, Brian was ultimately disqualified after receiving assistance on the Placer High track as he attempted to finish the race.Jason retold the story of the day and how he recently reconnected to Brian many years after that fateful day. Join us for the full inside retelling of a day of the highest highs and the lowest lows. Ultrarunning never fails to deliver dramatic stories like this, and ultimately, Brian returned to Western States 10 years later in 2016 and received his coveted buckle!---Your hosts: Jessica Harris / Greg Larkin / Mike Turner Artwork/logo by Krista Cavender: https://www.kcavenderdesign.com/ | IG: https://www.instagram.com/kristacavender/Intro/outro music: Joseph McDade - Elevation: https://josephmcdade.com/music/elevationThe Mile 99 Interview is creating podcast episodes | PatreonVenmo | The Mile 99 InterviewSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/themile99interview)
After the seven survivors of the Forlorn Hope Party broke through to Johnson Ranch on January 18th, 1847 after a harrowing 33-day trek where 8 members perished, relief parties were mustered to try and retrieve the remaining survivors of the Donner Party. The first of four relief parties departed Johnson Ranch on February 4th, 1847, with mules and provisions. As the frigid winter and rugged Sierra terrain persisted, their numbers dwindled to seven men who summoned their determination and humanity, eventually reaching the buried cabins on the edge of Donner Lake on February 18th, 1847. Upon arriving they encountered silence and saw nothing but snowdrifts 20 feet deep. A lone dark figure emerged from the snow and in a frail women’s voice said, “Are you men from California or do you come from heaven?” Thus began the rescue of the Donner Party. The Relief Parties are a lesser-known part of the Donner saga. The grit and selflessness of these men who risked their lives for strangers is a tale of inspiration and intrigue. Bob Crowley, Tim Twietmeyer, Jennifer Hemmen, and Elke Reimer explored the multi-dimensional persona of each of the relief party members; their history, character, and motivation. With this, they linked together the relief route based on historic records. To honor the true grit and selflessness of the relief parties the Donner Relief Expedition will set off on February 14, 2022, from Johnson Ranch on mules and foot and head east over the Sierra Nevada to the Donner State Park Museum exactly 175 years to the day of the arrival of the 1st Relief Party. Come and take a seat by the campfire and listen to what this crew has planned.
