I realize this episode started with a long opening about our sponsors. Thanks to your support of the podcast and our sponsors, we've been renewed for another year by our good friends at Goldspot, Luxury Brands of America, and BRL Cofee Co.

Can you imagine a Platinum Preppy - a pen that is considered to be a super-affordable starter fountain pen for under $10 - with maki-e on it? The ancient Japanese art of decorating things (like pens) usually comes with a hefty price tag. Did Platinum turn the Preppy into "Preposterous?" Heavens, no! Coming in March, the 3rd edition of the Preppy Wa in Maki-e will make believers of you all. Using screen-printed designs, Platinum was able to give this affordable pen an artistic touch without skyrocketing the price. Soon, you'll be able to find all the new Preppy Wa pens at your favorite Platinum pen dealers.   Don't forget to check out brlcoffeeco.com for the latest and greatest in coffee from my good friend Neil.

An unseasonably warm winter in Europe threatens ski resorts, tourism

Christine Harrison has taken to sitting outside, barefoot, on the balcony of her chalet in the French Alps, and soaking up the sunshine.Harrison, from Liverpool in the UK, has been visiting the French ski resort of Praz De Lys every winter for the past 25 years. The family-friendly resort is located at an altitude of 4,921 feet and boasts 31 miles of Nordic ski slopes for sports enthusiasts.This year, she said, just finding a slope with snow has been her biggest challenge: “There's no snow, literally, you can't ski here. There's just grass everywhere.”Praz de Lys, like numerous ski resorts across the Alps and French Pyrenees, is struggling to cope with the unprecedented warm temperatures this month. Some resorts like A x 3 Domaines, located close to the French border with Andorra, have shut completely.Others, like Le Gets and Morzine, in the Portes du Soleil area, have closed several of their ski runs.Harrison said that she, along with her partner and two teenage children, went to Les Contamines that's nestled at the foot of Mont Blanc in search of better skiing conditions earlier this week. At the top of the slopes, Harrison said, they finally found snow but as they descended below 2,000 meters, the rain started to pour down and the ski run quickly turned to slush.“It was horrible. We managed to do about four hours and it was like, what are we even doing here? It was carnage,” she said. Le Praz De Lys in the French alps is shown on a more wintry day in 2017.  Credit: Courtesy of Christine Harrison The conditions are not just challenging for winter sports enthusiasts, but they could prove risky, too.Klaus Dodds, a professor of geopolitics at Royal Holloway University of London, said skiers and snowboarders will notice that piste (downhill ski trails) and snow conditions become more uncertain in warmer temperatures.“There's more chance of avalanches, and skiing just becomes more dangerous because snow and ice is less settled,” he said.Dodds said he isn't surprised by the rise in temperatures at European ski resorts this winter. After all, he said, several EU countries experienced record-breaking heat waves last summer. Scientists have been warning about this for years, he said.“We're not just talking about climate change now, it's climate breakdown,” Dodds said.It's not only winter ski resorts that are seeing unprecedented temperature hikes this month. Cities in Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary and France have all smashed records for the hottest start to the new year.Warsaw, Poland, where the mercury usually hovers around freezing at this time of year, clocked up 66 degrees Fahrenheit on Jan. 1. Residents of Bilbao in northern Spain headed to the beach earlier this week as temperatures soared to highs usually seen in midsummer.Snow loss or ice loss also has implications for water supply, according to Dodds.Many of Europe's major rivers, such as the River Po in Italy or the Rhine in Germany, are dependent on alpine meltwater to replenish water levels. Low water levels have a negative impact on agriculture and endanger river transport, he said. Christine Harrison (middle), with daughter Sophie and son Jack are shown at the French ski resort in snowier times in February 2020. Credit: Courtesy of Christine Harrison Countries like France and Switzerland have also been expressing concern that they will not have enough water to act as coolant for their nuclear power stations, Dodds said.The high winter temperatures also pose a challenge to communities in alpine towns that are dependent on winter tourism.Sara Burdon, communications manager at the Morzine tourist office, said local businesses are worried.“While the summer is an important and very much growing part of the tourism here, the winter is still the main season and the one in which businesses make most of their income,” Burdon said.For the last few years, the town of Morzine has tried to address the negative impact a ski resort can have on the environment. Ski holidays can produce a large carbon footprint between visitor flights and the use of gas-guzzling equipment like artificial snow machines and ski lifts. Sara Burdon works in the Morzine tourism office in France said that businesses are worried about the impact of warm winter temperatures on seasonal tourism. Credit: Sam Ingles Burdon said the town has now installed solar panels on some of the chair lifts, while workers have adopted more sustainable ways of looking after the ski pistes, including using GPS systems to target exactly where artificial snow is required.Last year, Morzine was awarded the Flocon Vert sustainability award — an environmental honor recognizing green development policies in European ski resorts.Burdon said that they are still working hard to combat the heavy carbon cost of the flights.A local environmental charity, Montagne Verte, has created a special train pass called the AlpinExpress Pass, which gives those who arrive by rail cut-price offers on their journey as well as cheaper accommodation and discounts on ski hire.Burdon said they try to encourage their European visitors to make the journey by train whenever possible.One silver lining from the unexpected balmy conditions this season has been lower heating bills. Last summer, the German government warned of a possible fuel shortage in the winter along with soaring energy costs — caused by the lack of a gas supply from Russia.In December, the German economy minister, Robert Habeck, said he is optimistic the country has enough fuel to see it through the winter.But Dodds pointed out that warmer temperatures have also been responsible for the catastrophic flooding in parts of Europe last year that devastated homes, particularly in Germany. The climate scientist said he believes that governments can still do more to prevent further temperature rises. For starters he said, nations need to stick to the targets laid out in the 2015 Paris Agreement which vowed to prevent global temperatures from rising 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels this century, and in particular, limit the increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius.“We're already 1.2 degrees past, so there's little wriggle room left before we reach the 1.5 degree limit,” Dodds said. “That's why we talk about a climate emergency.”

Andrew Messina is a trail ultrarunner from Middletown, New Jersey where he lives with his wife and two children. He owns and operates a small business called Tech Experts in New York City. Andrew started running in 2010 when he was somewhat overweight and discovered he had a kidney stone, realizing that his health was not something he could be proud of. This summer Andrew became one of only 12 athletes in 2022 to complete both Western States Endurance Run AND Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc in the same year. Of those 12 athletes, five were elite and seven were non-elite, and he was the only person from New Jersey.  Kim met Andrew back in 2019 at Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Run and after some shared pre-race french fries and a few miles on the course they both realized they had lots in common, the least of which was a dream to run UTMB. We had Marianne Hogan on the show back in September when we talked about doing both races nine weeks apart from an elite perspective and in this conversation we talked about what Andrew's experience was like from a non-elite perspective. Regardless of what labels we give each other, accomplishing a double like WSER and UTMB in the same year is significant, and we think you will enjoy hearing the passion and energy in his voice as Andrew tells us the story of a summer I'm sure he will never forget.Connect with Andrew:Strava: @andrewmessinaInstagramResources we discussed in this episode:Episode 88 with Trena ChellinoTrail Runner Nation with AJWConnect with Carolyn & Kim:Kim's InstagramKim's FacebookCarolyn's InstagramCarolyn's FacebookCarolyn's website (sign up for her free weekly newsletter on the homepage)We love hearing from you!

Hari Budha Magar was injured in Afghanistan and is a double above the knee leg amputee. Serving for 15 years in the British Army's legendary Gurkha regiment, Hari has transformed from injured veteran to record breaking mountaineer. Changing perceptions towards people with disability is what now drives Hari. He is a champion of removing limits, most notably with his persistence and involvement in lobbying officials in Nepal to overturn a ban on people with disabilities climbing Everest in 2018. Not wanting disability to stop him, or others conquering dreams, he has been continually working to positively transform the way people with a disability are perceived, and how they perceive themselves. Hari seizes the opportunity to blaze new trails for people with disabilities. He has kayaked around the Isle of Wight, completed multiple skydives, para-glided and bungee jumped. Mont Blanc, Kilimanjaro and his highest to date, the 6,476m Mera Peak in Nepal, are among the peaks he has already climbed. He is attempting to climb Everest in 2023. Krish Thapa, World Leading Mountaineer and Ex-SAS Mountain Troop Leader. Krish is a world-class high-altitude mountaineer, ex- SAS Mountain leader and professional guide. He was the first Gurkha from The Royal Gurkha Rifles regiment to pass selection into the British SAS, serving as head of the Mountain Troop. He has been at the front line in Iraq and Afghanistan in countless challenging situations. He led the largest Summit group up Everest of 13 UK special forces and Gurkha and he was the first serving Warrant officer to scale Mt Everest & K2. He has guided amputees, blind, deaf, Parkinson's disease sufferers and PTSD veterans on expedition in Africa, Europe, and the Himalayas of Nepal. Without a doubt, Krish is one of the finest and most inspirational climbers in the world. He has been the enabler behind some of the decade's most import climbs and has helped shatter disbelief in the perceived limitation of disabled mountaineers such as Hari whose ability is extraordinary. He has also inspired and trained some of the world's most prolific climbers including Nims Dai Their crowd funding page is here Music by Episound under license to DCT Audio.

It's not often we consider the sport of Ultra Marathon Running as being particularly French, but Emma fascinated me with her story of the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc she ran in the French Alps around Chamonix, this past summer of 2022.*  The Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, also known as the UTMB is the most sought-after trail-running event for trail-runners from all over the world crossing three countries: France, Italy and Switzerland. Each year, at the end of August, the elite of the trail-running world come to Chamonix Mont-Blanc to participate in one of the event's races.*Firstly, not everyone gets to run an Ultra Marathon. Qualification is needed by earning points from particular lead-in events. Qualification is actually both demonstrating that each competitor can run 100kms and also a lottery, which Emma entered together with her friends so if one of them made it through the lottery, they all got a spot. Emma worked through the qualifying criteria and winning a lottery spot with a couple of her friends she was off! The course of the event would usually take hikers 7 to 9 days to traverse but Emma completed the whole event in 43 hours! In the whole 43 hours Emma had only 20 minutes of sleep. Continuing in the dark, in rugged terrain, in extreme conditions meant that 42% of starting competitors didn't finish.*Tune into the fascinating and inspiring chat with Emma. How she coped with the language barrier, the different customs, all with preparations in mountainous regions of Australia  much smaller than the French Alps! The locals came out to cheer the runners on, the Australian competitors supported each other, the stations along the way had good cooked foods, medics and rest spots. But in the end, it is an extreme event and I am in absolute awe of Emma's amazing achievement.

Day 228 Today's Reading: 2 Peter 1 A young man was at the zebra enclosure at the Cairo International Garden municipal park and noticed something wrong about the zebras. When he took a closer look, he became convinced that the animals being touted as zebras were actually donkeys painted to look like zebras. He took a photo and posted his accusation on Facebook. The photo gained the attention of a local news team, who contacted a veterinarian, who claimed that zebra snouts are usually black, and their stripes are more consistent and uniform compared to the striping on the animal in the photo which also sported black smudging around the face. A zoo in Gaza also received similar accusations of donkey-painting in 2009. The zoo claimed they did it because of an Israeli blockade that prevented the zoo from purchasing actual zebras. Do you know what a knockoff is? It's the counterfeit of an expensive brand of anything. There are knockoff watches, pens, purses, sunglasses, almost anything. They have the same markings, and the same logo, and the same colors, but they are the cheap versions of designer pieces. You buy them on the street instead of in the store. A knockoff Rolex is about $15. A knockoff Montblanc pen is about $10. A knockoff Coach purse is about $25. The knockoff has the same outward markings but lacks the craftsmanship. Knockoffs are exposed by time and use. If it's real, it lasts. If it's real, it can endure. If it's real, you'll know it because it doesn't diminish even when it faces harsh circumstances. In today's chapter, Peter has something significant to say about the real thing. He starts off with comparing his faith and the new church's faith, which is separated by decades: “Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:1). He is writing to Christians who “received a faith of the same kind as ours.” These words are significant. This epistle was written in AD 68, and Peter's time with Jesus was in the late AD 20s. Some forty years later, Peter makes this bombshell statement—that these believers' faith is the same kind as his. Think of this. He is telling them that they have the real thing, not some knockoff or second-rate faith.” Think too of who is saying this. It is someone who talked with Jesus, saw His miracles, witnessed the transfiguration (Peter speaks about that at the end of this chapter), saw Christ die, saw Him after He rose again, ate a fish dinner with Him, and saw Jesus taken up in the ascension. And he tells these Christians forty years later that their faith in Jesus and his faith in Jesus is the same! When I was a student at Baylor University, I did not have a lot of spending money. My father sent me $75 a month. I remember all these students walking around campus with Ralph Lauren Polos, and I desperately wanted one. The problem was that I did not have $32 to buy one. Then one day, I saw a guy selling knockoff Polos on a street corner in Waco, Texas. They were only $5. Now I get to be like everyone else, I thought, as I forked over $5 for a knockoff purple Polo. I noticed that the rider of the horse and the horse itself were slightly detached, but hey, it was only $5! I wore my Polo one day and then washed it. It went from a Large to a 2T. The wash shrunk it. When it's real, it lasts. When it's real, time is not an enemy. It is a revealer. Peter's and these Christians' faith are real. It can go through hard times, denial times (Peter knows about that), scared and cowardly times (Peter knows about that), and still come out the same. Hard times, harsh circumstances, persecution, tribulation—none of these will be able to take away that faith when it's real. And if anyone should know, it's Peter. Peter knows it's the same because these Christians are going through the persecutions of Nero. They are faced with death, and yet their faith stays intact. That's the same kind of faith. Two thousand years later, the faith that you and I have in Jesus Christ is the same as the apostle Peter's in the first century. Time doesn't shrink it or change it. It just reveals if it's real. We have a real faith that can and has stood the test of time. No knockoff. We have the real thing. We don't have to paint the donkeys. We've got the real zebras. We've got real faith.

If you aren't familiar with Hillary's racing career, it's likely because most of the racing she's done is in Europe where the style and the terrain of the racing suits her; it's what she really loves. Hillary is also the author of the book Out and Back where she chronicles in fine detail exactly what she's had to overcome and what's she's learned.Hillary will readily tell you that she's not the same as she was before her running journey began. She doesn't consider her story one of comebacks; it's one of growth. It's a story punctuated by a near-death fall and then other serious set-backs. Through it all, Hillary has honed the art of growth through adversity, and she's cultivated a lot of skills along the way. In this episode, Hillary brings us up to the present, which very significantly includes her running the 100-mile UTMB, which just took place at the end of August 2022. If you're not totally familiar with UTMB, it can refer to the collection of races that take place over the course of a week in late summer in the Alps, with all of the action based out of Chamonix, France, or it can refer to the UTMB race, which is the premier event of that week of races. The race is a full circumnavigation of Western Europe's highest peak, Mont Blanc. Suffice to say the UTMB festival of events is the largest, most competitive collection of ultra events in the world. When Hillary isn't racing up and down the tough technical terrain in Europe or elsewhere in the world, she's training and racing on the tough technical terrain near her home in Boulder, Colorado. She relayed her story from there just after returning from her time in Chamonix and the UTMB.This episode is sponsored by The Feed, the largest online marketplace for your sports nutrition, offering the brands you know and love, from Skratch Labs, Clif Bar, to Maurten, plus their athlete customized supplements called Feed Formulas.

For all the grief we gave Platinum over the original Curidas retractable fountain pen - it's now the pen that I wish I hadn't lost. It served me so well during my studying and I could always depend on it to quickly jot down notes wherever, whenever. It almost seems like Platinum took all of our criticisms about the first version and made a much better, retractable fountain pen. You're welcome, world. Get curious about the Curidas. It's a retractable fountain pen that won't dry out for 6 months and you can remove the clip, which is something that many people wish a Vanishing Point could do but doesn't. With a retail price under $100, it's also more affordable than a VP. You can try one out at Goldspot (remember: use the affiliate link & the coupon code!) or another Platinum Pen retailer of choice.

Today on the podcast we have one of the most fascinating people I have even spoken with - Canyon Woodward. Canyon is a championship level trail and ultra runner, political campaign manager, and climate activist. Canyon's new short film, RURAL RUNNERS, is an intimate look into what it takes to show up, rain or shine, and how to balance running for yourself and running for your country. The film follows Maine State Senator Chloe Maxmin's House & Senate runs, as well as Canyon's demanding trail running career. It's a unique pairing of affairs - a fun, relevant and inspiring story that humanizes the political process and extends beyond the dark state of party politics. It's also about avoiding burnout - a common occurrence on the campaign trail - by prioritizing self-care, and bringing a bit of joy and purpose to everything we do. Canyon and Chloe also co-authored Dirt Road Revival, a fascinating book that details their work together and a path forward for important political work in rural communities. Here are some of Canyon's amazing recent race and FKT results: 10/01/22 - The Naturalist 30k // 2:15, 1st Overall // Franklin, NC 8/26/22 - Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc // 25:08, 48th Overall // Chamonix, France 7/14/22 - S.C.A.R. // 13:33, Unsupported and Overall FKT // Great Smokies National Park, NC 7/01/22 - Art Loeb Trail // 5:38, Unsupported and Overall FKT // Shining Rock Wilderness, NC 5/21/22 - Sun Mountain 50k // 4:04, 1st Overall // Winthrop, WA 8/8/21 - USATF 50K Trail Championship // 5:18, 5th Overall // Danbury, NH 5/14/21 - Cruel Jewel 100 (106mi, 30,000 ft of elevation gain) // 22:36, 1st Overall (Course Record) // Blairsville, GA 3/20/21 - Assault on Blackrock // 1:06:21, 1st Overall (Course Record) // Sylva, NC 1/18/20 - Tsali Frosty Foot 50k // 3:57, 1st Overall // Almond, NC 10/5/19 - The Naturalist 50k // 5:02, 1st Overall // Franklin, NC 4/20/19 - Hellbender 100 Miler (24,000+ ft of elevation gain) // 23:22, 3rd Overall // Asheville, NC 1/20/19 - Tsali Frosty Foot 50k // 4:10, 2nd Overall // Almond, NC You can learn more about Canyon at and watch RURAL RUNNERS at www.dirtroadorganizing.org and www.canyonwoodward.com.
