Season 3 of Trail Talk has been all about racing — how to prepare, and mental and physical strategies for the race itself.

All leading up to my biggest race of the year, the Thunder Rock 100.

In today’s episode (the final of the season) I share a few lessons from that recent race experience, and things I’d do differently next time around. Lessons that can translate to better racing at any distance, not just the 100-mile ultramarathons.

Here’s what I covered in today’s show:

  • I screwed up
  • The things we can’t control
  • How do you let something go mid race?
  • Why I probably sound like your mother
  • Preparing for any situation
  • Teaser for season 4!
