Today’s episode pretty much goes against everything I’ve ever said on Trail Talk. It’s an interview with Sid Garza-Hillman, race director of the Mendocino Coast 50K and recent North Face Endurance Challenge San Francisco 50K finisher.

We talk about his approach to training for and racing in San Francisco, and how it freed up time, energy, and head space to do other things.

While this approach might not be something I’d recommend for most people, it’s certainly a thought provoking and interesting experiment.
