#103 TRIPLE CROWN RECAP with Hector Rodriguez
How lucky am I? I get to chat with some of the baddest, most skilled, most talented adventurers on the planet. Well, I’ve got a bonus episode for you guys this week. It’s so good, I just wanted to get it out! Hector Rodriguez just completed what is affectionately known as the Triple Crown of 200’s. That’s three 200 mile races within a three month window. It’s been a goal of his to complete this insane, mind melting adventure for over a year now. And he did it. We get into it all from humble beginnings to strategy to the Wolfpack that he rolls with and just what it takes to run three 200’s over the summer. These last couple of episodes have been some of my favorites and I hope you like this one as much as I did!

#101 WINNER of the Ouray 100 // Anthony Lee
I’ve got a young up and comer on the show this week. Anthony Lee is out crushing big mountain races and I had to get him on the show to hear how he does it. He ran three 100’s this year and he won two of them, including his A race for the year, Ouray 100. He was the 3rd fastest person to run this beast of a race! He’s only 27 years old and he’s just finding his rhythm when it comes to ultramarathons. He’s getting faster and having more success and if you’re into ultra, this is a guy you’re going to want to keep your eye on.

#100 FACILITATE YOUR OWN HEALING with Spaceman Samson Luce
Alright, here it is. Episode #100 of the DO BIG THINGS podcast. If you’re new here, I try and find exciting guests that are doing BIG THINGS with their lives and have a story or some wisdom to share. I’m pretty pumped about this weeks episode, however...disclaimer...if you’re looking for a podcast about running, this week’s episode is probably not for you. The majority of my podcasts are me chatting with ultrarunners who are out there, pushing the boundaries and figuring out who they are on a deep level. Spaceman Samson is the man that inspired me to begin on this podcast journey about a year and a half ago. So, I thought it would be fitting to bring him back on for episode 100. He’s always got a lot of wisdom to share and let me tell you, this episode is about as woo as it gets. Samson is a certified reiki healer, he’s an artist and he’s just an overall wise young man. In a lot of ways, I look at this guy as one of my teachers. He calls me sensei and I call him teacher. So with that, let’s just jump right in. Give it up for my man, Spaceman Samson!

#99 Midwest Ultra Legend // Matt Bartz
You better believe I’ve got another inspiring guest for you today! I used to see him at all the races in the Midwest, and I’ve seen him at races out here in Colorado as well. His name is Matt Bartz and most recently, he ran the Superior 100 and set a personal record for himself. Then, just a week later, he went out and experienced the Barkley Fall Classic and of course, he finished that race as well. Of course, he’s another one of those humble guys that you practically have to beg to come on the show. He’s run over 70 ultramarathons and he’s super passionate about what he does.

She’s fun, she’s bubbly and she was a blast to talk to. She’s been on the show before, you can check out more of her history on episode #38.

#97 The GRAND SLAM of Ultrarunning // Gina Fioroni
My guest this week is certainly an inspiration! Gina Fioroni is one of those badass ultrarunning chicks that you see out running races nearly every weekend. This year, she decided to take on the Grand Slam of ultrarunning. Typically, that means running four of the oldest 100 milers in the country in one year. At the time of this interview, Gina had run 3 of the 4 hundred milers and since this interview, she has completed the Grand Slam and is officially a Slammer! Please, take a moment to give her a congrats, it’s a huge accomplishment! I was at the finish line of the Leadville 100 and when I saw her finish, it wasn’t exactly the best condition I’d seen Gina in. She had a major case of the “ultra lean” going on and she was right up against the 30-hour cutoff. Find out why a seasoned veteran like Gina was at the back of the pack. Better yet, listen to Gina and her incredible story of dogged persistence at this year’s Grand Slam of ultrarunning.

#96 Leadville 100 7th Place Finisher // Hannes Gehring
My guest this week, Hannes Gehring's mountain fitness is something I really aspire to. He’s been on the show before, he was on episode 40 and it was right after he completed Nolan’s 14. Shortly after that, he was battling injuries and not doing much running. It’s been fun watching him overcome his obstacles and come back to earn a 7th place finish at Leadville this year. Pay attention to this guy, he’s a special person and I don’t think this is the last we’ll here of him. This show is brought to you by BIG THINGS CREWING. Look us up for all your ultramarathon needs.

#95 WINNER of the 2021 LEADVILLE 100 // Adrian Macdonald
A couple of weeks ago, we were out at the Leadville 100, pacing and crewing. I was at the Twin Lakes aid station when I saw Adrian Macdonald coming through in first place, making it look as easy as a Sunday stroll. I knew I had to talk to him. When I found out he lives in Fort Collins, I wanted to talk to him even more. That’s just down the road from me. You see, this was Adrian’s first Leadville and first hundred miler altogether. And he won! Convincingly! In fact, only 4 people have ever run that course faster than him. How is that possible? We get into it all. Thanks for listening!

#94 Highest Hundred FKT with Andrew Hamilton and Andrea Sansone
This week, we’ve got a SUPER inspiring episode. These guys epitomize our DO BIG THINGS slogan. Andrew Hamilton and his partner Andrea Sansone are on the show this week, talking about Andrew’s latest adventure. He just set the Fastest Known Time doing the Colorado Centennial’s, which is the one-hundred highest peaks of Colorado. He did it in a mind bending 22 days! Andrea was there crewing and pacing him for the entire duration. Now in my circle, Andrew is known as the Godfather of Nolan’s 14 or the King of the Colorado 14ers. I guess I just assumed that when these guys plan out an adventure to tackle, it goes smooth and there are no mistakes or accidents because they’ve done this stuff so many times. But much to my surprise, things don’t always go as planned. Even the best of the best run into hiccups and problems. Thankfully, for us, they dish it all out. I could listen to these guys talk all night. I’m so happy they came on the show and I know you are going to dig this as much as I did! big-things-crewing.com patreon.com/dobigthings athleticbrewing.com PROMO is MCROBERTSA20 for 20% off xoskin.us PROMO is BTC for 15% off onpacewellness.com / mention this podcast for 10% off Original Music by @the.pro.guey Life is short, DO BIG THINGS!

#93 Straight up MOM GRIT with Katie Asmuth
I’ve got a really cool guest for you guys this week! She’s a wife, a mom, she’s got a full time job and she managed to get 5th place at the prestigious Western States 100 this year. Over the last couple of years, her name has been coming up more and more in the ultra-scene with big wins at the Bandera 100k, Zion 100 and Bear 100. She’s a bubbly athlete with a high stoke level and you’re going to want to keep an eye on her in the upcoming years. I had a lot of fun talking to her and I think you’re going to find some inspiration in this conversation! big-things-crewing.com patreon.com/dobigthings athleticbrewing.com PROMO code is MCROBERTSA20 onpacewellness.com // mention this podcast for a 10% discount xoskin.us PROMO code is BTC Original music by @the.pro.guey Life is short, DO BIG THINGS!

#92 SILVERHEELS 100 Finisher // Drew Ralston
My guest today is a great guy and I had the pleasure of pacing him 48 miles of his race, the Silverheels 100, here in Colorado. It’s a tough, tough course but we made it. We did it with each other. Maybe my guy Drew Ralston could have done it himself without a pacer but we chose to partner up to better his chances at getting him into the finish. I had a blast chasing him around the mountains for a lot of hours. Drew is about as tough as they come and we’re lucky to have him on the show this week. big-things-crewing.com patreon.com/dobigthings Original Music by @the.pro.guey Sponsors: athleticbrewing.com Promo code is MCROBERTSA20 xoskin.us Promo code is BTC onpacewellness.com Mention this podcast for a 10% discount Life is short, DO BIG THINGS!

#91 LAST MAN STANDING at the 2021 Hardrock 100 // Terry Miller
Welcome back my friends, it’s July 27th and this is another episode of the DO BIG THINGS podcast. I’ve got a great conversation coming up for you guys this week. I talk with my man, Terry Miller who just completed the Hardrock 100. I really enjoyed listening to his story. He has been trying to get into Hardrock 100 for about ten years now. Anyone who has entered the Hardrock lottery before, knows how difficult it can be. Not to mention running year after year of qualifiers just for the chance that you might be picked one year. Well this year, Terry was picked to run his first Hardrock 100. It was everything he hoped for. He was challenged, he had to dig deep and he finished the race. He finished DFL. But he finished, nonetheless. He may not be fast, he may not be elite. But he had a dream to run Hardrock and when he got his opportunity, he didn’t waste it. He got his money’s worth. Afterall, DFL in one race is called Last Man Standing in another race. Terry, congratulations. You had a dream, you saw it through and now, you are a Hardrock finisher. big-things-crewing.com patreon.com/dobigthings SUPPORT: athleticbrewing.com PROMO code is MCROBERTSA20 for 20% off onpacewellness.com / Mention this podcast for 10% off xoskin.us PROMO code is BTC for 15% off Original Music by @the.pro.guey Life is short, DO BIG THINGS!

#87 THE UNFORGIVING LINE with Paul Maurer
Welcome back, it’s Tuesday, June 29th and I’ve got another hitter for you! Paul Maurer is a runner and an author and he recently published a fantastic novel called The Unforgiving Line. I read the book and I really enjoyed it. It’s well written and I love the way the author spins the tale. Paul has written several books, some about running and others not so much. This book, tells the story of an older man who was once an elite runner but at the critical moment, blew it and harbors a lot of resentment about that period of his life. He meets a younger runner named DJ. What starts from there is a beautiful relationship between the master and the student.

I’ve got another fabulous guest for you all this week. Her name is Laura Kaplan and to anyone who was at the Cocodona 250 this year, she was the one who was affectionately known as the nosebleed girl! Yes, she was the one you may have seen pictures of. Bloody nose, toilet paper stuffed in her nose and STILL MOVING FORWARD. She completed Cocodona and just a few weeks later, ran another hundred miler. I think she recovers like we all wish we did. She’s a ball of fire and she’s putting on lots of miles every week around the Boulder area. We chat about how she got into running, how it helps her mental health and of course Cocodona 250.
