#129 - Running the Whalers' Great Route Ultra-Trail in the Azores

In this episode I travel to the Azores, Portugal, on the island of Faial, to race in the Whalers' Great Route Ultra-Trail by Azores Trail Run which was established in 2014. I recorded the conversation post running the 25K race. I spoke with the race director Mário Leal, discussing the race, the experience of running in the Azores. It is a place where the runners run across incredible volcanic craters that formed the island. Plus we dive deeper into the history of the place and the historical passages of the ancient whalers that tell the story of this land and its people. This podcast accompanies the YouTube video which adds an extra layer of depth alongside this conversation. Click the following link to watch it. https://youtu.be/M40HX3vxJ8E Please note this video goes live May 22, 2022 at 12:00 PM BST The YouTube video shows the natural blue of the ocean to the vastness of green from its forests and fields, the black sands of the last volcanic eruption that grew this island, to the pallet of colours of the environment are just some of the great sights you will experience on this journey. The 25K race is called The Trail Ten Volcanoes. As the name indicates, it starts at spectacular volcanic calderas and passes, along 10 of the most important volcanoes of Capelo Peninsula's fissural alignment. Visually the biodiversity and geodiversity are a constant on this course. What was striking was the incredible landscapes of this peninsula, where a great part of the Azores endemic plants can be found in its natural state. This Capelinhos Volcano was last active 57 years old ago (2022) the terrain is formed mainly by volcanic matter. It ends at Porto do Comprido, at the sea level, on the main and largest whaling station of the Azores between 1940 and 1957. Personally I found the change from road to trails challenging mentally and physically, but I felt so rewarded, it is an amazing race that will stay with me for the right reasons, and I am keen to run it again in the future. Runners have the option of running these different distance races on the same event: Whalers' Great Route Ultra Trail: 118k Ultra Blue Island: 65k Marathon Faial Coast to Coast: 45k Ten Volcanoes Trail: 25k Mini Family Trail: 11k - Free for Kids under 16 For the 118K race for runners who complete the race within 26 hours, they will qualify to enter a lottery where the runners for Western States 100 Miler will be selected.

One of the toughest accomplishments to achieve in ultrarunning is securing a Golden Ticket spot to Western States 100 by placing in the top 2 of the Canyons 100K race. And today's guest recently accomplished that feat, even though the race was only his first 100K ever! Adam Peterman is a HOKA athlete who has been taking the ultrarunning world by storm over the last few years in his early career. He won the JFK 50 miler in 2021, nearly breaking a seemingly unreachable course record. And in this year, he took first place at the Canyons 100K race to secure his spot at Western States 100, where he will no doubt be a top contender to look out for in an already stacked field. And in this episode, we dive into Adam's approach to training and preparation for big races, how he tackles negative thoughts during the middle of a race or on training runs, and what he's focusing on going into Western States 100. Huge thank you to Adam for making this episode happen!

#147: Beyond Burnout with Dr. Amy O'Hana

This week on Real Talk with Rachael, I'm chatting with Dr. Amy O'Hana about her book Beyond Burnout: What to Do When Your Work Isn't Working for You. Dr. Amy O'Hana is a licensed professional counselor in Oregon and an Approved Clinical Supervisor. She is a full-time professor of clinical mental health counseling at the University of Western States in Portland, OR, has been a full-time counselor educator for 18 years, manages her own private practice, and has been the director of two counseling training clinics. Amy's research interests are human potential and motivation, erotic intelligence (which is more about spirituality than sexuality), and integrative approaches in psychotherapy (spirit-body-mind). She is the author of two published books, When Your Child is Grieving: God's Hope and Wisdom for the Journey Toward Healing and Beyond Burnout: What To Do When Your Work Isn't Working For You. She writes every day – whether fiction and non-fiction, poetry, journaling, letters, or emails. When not writing, counseling or teaching, you can find Amy working on her fixer-upper, playing with her French bulldog Sunny, kayaking, or exploring the mountains of Central Oregon. Key Points from Our Conversation: Burnout is essentially a disconnection. It's a sense of dysregulated wholeness meaning you're fragmented in some way and disconnected from your purpose. 3 characteristics of burnout - a sense of emotional exhaustion, physical exhaustion, and loss of meaning Loss of meaning can result in unethical behavior that seems out of character with the person engaged in it. They have become so disconnected from themselves that they no longer perceive things rationally. It's easy to judge, but we can all become so exhausted that we disconnect from ourselves. Work is not a vocation. Stay-at-home moms experience burn out too. Being overbooked and burnt out can occur at the same time. When you're overbooked, you'll feel better once you change the environment. Burnout requires a process of reconnection. You can know you're burnt out if you notice changes on 3 levels - you're becoming more cynical, you notice weight gain or become more irritable, and you begin asking existential spiritual questions 5 intentions of burnout resolution - practice stillness so God can restore your soul. Step into the stillness of presence and connection. Seek connection with God, yourself, and work. Cultivate awareness of who you are, where you are, and where you want to be. Focus on who you are to be, not what you are to do. Move past doing to being by being intentional about fully connecting with the moment you're in instead of focusing on the end goal. When you notice a friend experiencing burnout, find a way to serve them. They may not even realize they're experiencing it, but it's serious. Give them grace while they navigate their disconnection. If you're experiencing burnout, the first step is acknowledging it. Slow down and understand it's a crisis, then attend to it. Let's Get Real Practical: Listen to the Talk Therapy Series about burnout Be present in the moment. Insert the "to be" in your to-do list.

Kia ora e te whānau..This week on the podcast Eugene speaks with Hayden Hawks. Hayden is a professional runner based in Utah who famously won the first trail ultra he entered, the Speed Goat 50km in 2016. For those that know, this is not just any race. Hayden has a clutch of other races including JFK 50 Mile in a course record in 2020, Black Canyon 2020, UTMB CCC in 2017 in a course record. He recently won the Coastal Challenge in Costa Rica too. Apart from life as a professional athlete, Hayden is an exercise science graduate, loves to go on riding adventures, and is a father and husband. Eugene had a deep dive into his training methods - and, importantly, recovery - we talked about the idea that US male athletes seem to have a thing about UTMB, which Hayden pushes back on quite strongly. Importantly, too, (for Matt) they discuss whether Hayden will be rocking his mustache when he lines up at Western States in June to get some revenge for last year when he was running in second until mile 92 until things went south.

In conversation with Nattu Natraj, the first known person of Indian origin to do Badwater 135, a tough grueling ultra foot race. The Badwater marathon is 135 miles of hell in 140F temperatures. From Death Valley to Mt. Whitney. It gets so hot that shoes melt on asphalt. Therefore, the runners often seek solace on the white strips on the side of the road, where it is relatively less hot. To prep for Badwater, Nattu completed the Marathon Des Sables. Marathon des Sables, or MdS, (French for Marathon of the Sands, also known as Sahara Marathon)[1] is a six-day, 251 km (156 mi)[2] ultramarathon, which is approximately the distance of six regular marathons. This multi-day race is held every year in southern Morocco, in the Sahara Desert. It has been regarded as the toughest foot race on Earth. Additionally, Nattu has completed over 150 ultras including the Western States 100 and Hurt 100.

Jazmine Lowther of Nelson, BC fresh off of her Golden Ticket win at The Canyons 100, chats with us about her short yet epic journey as an ultra runner. With a history deep in endurance sports including alpine climbing, skiing and soccer, Jazmine is relatively new on the scene but has already carved out an impressive place at races such as Run Rabbit Run and Chuckanut 50k. To her utter disbelief, she led the women at Canyons off the start and never let it go. She went into the race believing that the Golden Ticket for Western States was for a 2023 entry and learned afterwards that she would be again toeing the line in California in just over 2 months! Before that, Jazmine is taking on an Everest Challenge - achieving vert in excess of 9,000 metres, in the hopes of raising $1000 or more for one of her favourite causes, protecting the ecosystems where she lives and trains.

La Western States 100 se déroulera en Californie dans deux mois et la Québécoise Marianne Hogan y participera, après l'obtention d'un Golden Ticket grâce à sa victoire à la Bandera 100k en janvier dernier. Pour cette troisième partie de notre série d'épisodes sur sa préparation, Marianne me parle d'acclimatation, autant à la chaleur qu'à l'altitude. L'une des particularités de la Western States est la chaleur intense dans les canyons californiens, qui dépasse souvent les 40°C. Par contre, on oublie souvent que la première partie de la course se déroule en altitude, avec des passages à plus de 2 000 mètres. Toutes ces variables nécessitent une acclimatation, et Marianne me raconte sa préparation. On aborde également une blessure à la cheville qui l'incommode depuis quelques semaines, ainsi que son récent voyage au Pérou.

Brittany Peterson is a Minnesota native who has been running since Junior High School. She has been in Idaho for the past 12 years, which is where her ultra-running and mountain running really took off post-collegiately. She has run professionally for Nike Trail since 2018 while she also balances a career as an occupational therapist teaching at a university. Brittany and her partner, Cody, enjoy traveling, running with their dogs and exploring the mountains in their backyard. They put on a Technical Mountain Running camp each year to share their passion and expertise in off-trail, mountain running. Brittany enjoys all distances, but particularly enjoys the 100k distance, where you can incorporate speed, while still having to problem solve any type of situation that may arise during an ultra-distance event. She has finished 2nd and 4th at the Western States Endurance Run in northern California and was the 4th top female in the 2021 Ultra Runner of the Year ranking.  We had so much fun chatting with Brittany.  We talk about the transition from road to mountain running and the importance of keeping it fun.  We discuss how she balances working and running as a professional athlete. Brittany gives some great advice on this topic.  We also had a great conversation about the struggle with comparison to other athletes. We are excited to watch Brittany this year at Western States.  Brittany is one of those people you instantly like.  We think you will enjoy getting to know her a little better. www.brittanypetersonruns.com/running-camps IG- @runhappyb

It was an absolute honor and a blast to host this convo with world-class entertainer, mentalist/mind reader, and Emmy winner, Oz Pearlman. When Oz isn't blowing the minds of audiences around the world, he is an avid marathon and ultra-marathon runner, having completed such grueling races as the Badwater 135 Miler, Hawaii Ironman World Championships, Western States 100, and Spartathlon. Oz ran a 2:29 in the 50th NYC Marathon, placing 33rd overall, and holds a 2:23 Marathon PR! On 4/8/2022, Oz is trying to break the record for most miles ever run in a day around Central Park since it was founded in 1858. This means running over 100 miles nonstop from 6am to 1am, over and over around one of the most iconic loops on the planet. He is running in support of the Save the Children Ukraine Relief Fund (you can donate here). Oz matched the first $10K donated and has a goal of raising $100K! For NYC locals and run clubs, home base will be at Engineers Gate, 90th & 5th, come on out and share some miles for a great cause! We discuss: running with purpose, the NYC Marathon, Sparthalon, Badwater 135, his training approach for the Central Park FKT record attempt, his 'why', nutrition, his upcoming appearance on the Rich Roll Podcast, Adam Skolnick, David Goggins, power couple Mike Halovatch and Kate Pallardy, the Keys 100, and much more. My favorite part was getting my mind read at the end of the episode... and having it be FULLY blown! I'm rooting hard for Oz to get it DONE and raise that $100K!

Tim probably needs no introduction, but of course he is one of the most decorated mountain ultra trail runners of all time, most notably with podium finishes at the 2015 CCC, 2016 UTMB and then again at  2017 UTMB which most ultra historians would say was the most competitive 100 miler ever in our sports history.  In this conversation, we talk about his focus these days on the Western States 100, his new role in the sport as a Race Director for the Mammoth Trail Fest taking place this September, his thoughts on athlete-brand relationships, and the importance of training for mental aspects of the sport.Timestamps:(2:30) - introducing the Mammoth Trail Fest(6:26) - festival type format for ultra racing(7:46) - exciting features of the Mammoth Trail Fest(9:46) - race permitting, economic benefits(12:38) - affiliating with a larger race series(15:16) - relationships with fellow race directors(17:33) - inspiration for race directing(19:07) - going full-time on race directing(21:38) - whether work gets in the way of running(24:30) - creating stability for professional runners (27:16) - whether performances improve going full-time(30:34) - brainstorming the training day to day of a full-time runner(33:34) - improvements to the athlete-brand relationship(39:02) - the black box of athlete contracts(41:47) - curiosity for UTMB(46:44) - whether the Western States - UTMB double is possible(51:50) - how training will look different for the 2022 Western States 100(56:40) - whether false humility is an issue in our sport(60:48) - identifying and acting on mental burnout(64:26) - whether the psychological works quiets the mind(67:59) - mental approach continuedLinks:Mammoth Trail FestFollow Tim on InstagramAdditional Episodes You May Enjoy:#52 - Mike Foote | Race Directing, Skyrunning Speculation, Future Of Ultrarunning Events, UTMB Influences#51 - Anton Krupicka | Trail Running Culture, Pro Athlete Lifestyle, Influence, Self-Reflection#50 - Tom Evans | Pro Ultrarunning Playbook, UTMB 2022, Trail Running TeamsSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/singletracknews)

Karen Bonnett Natraj is a long-distance athlete, and a Life Coach, focusing on Mental Fitness and Performance. While her journey started with cycling in the 1990s when she joined some family members for the MS 150 ride, she went on to "Randonneuring" 1200k rides and later pivoted into the world of ultra running and Ironman. There has been no looking back since she started, as she scaled her performances and qualified for the Boston marathon and the coveted Western States 100. Her 2017 near-miss finish at the Western States has well written about, and we get to get behind the scenes on that epic race.

As attitudes toward mental health have changed, so too have policies around how we treat those suffering from mental illness, how we cover those costs and how we measure the success of the institutions providing care. Here in Washington state — as progressive as it may be — overhauling the system has proven easier said than done.
