Trail Running Women Podcast Episode 4

Debbie was featured on the 22 October 2018 episode (E4) of the Trail Running Women podcast with host Hilary Spires, and this blog got a nice shout out. The least I could do was write about it and give this new podcast series a shout out back.

She met Hilary through a social media group for women trail runners and recorded this back in early August. Like Debbie, Hilary is a coach, though she is based in British Columbia. The focus of this episode was pregnancy and trail running, but their conversation covers a wide range of trail running, ultrarunning, and health related topics.

Hilary’s intro from episode 1:

Yo! I’m Hilary, your host. Listen in for a tiny intro on who I am and what I’m doing here. I’m a retired NCAA hockey player turned trail runner. Each episode I interview an inspiring woman about her story as a runner. These badass ladies from around the globe get honest about everything from competing, motherhood, and trying to have it all. Get ready for training ideas, gear tips, and a healthy dose of inspiration. Bonus! Once a month myself and my guest host Tory Scholz are going to answer listener Q&A on training, mindset, racing, and more.

I listened to the podcast while spinning on one of my bikes. I enjoyed their discussion and the flashbacks that it triggered. She reference a few of my more interesting posts from my years crewing at her ultras. I figured I would publish my own “show notes” with some links:

Despite the title, the interviews with Debbie and other trail running women are sure to be education for anyone with an interest in endurance sports.

My first ever The Ice Weasels Cometh was my 19th and final #cyclocross race of the season. I had a strong ride and was very happy considering that my second race of calendar 2018 (last race of last season) ended up with me breaking a leg. #iceweasels was a much better result and it’s great to finish with peak fitness. Doing most of the @zanksscx gave me a fresh reason to push through this cross season. Today’s race was a solo adventure but I saw lots of teammates and friends. #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #sevencycles @seven_cycles #zanksscx #horstengineering #crossisboss #lifedeathcyclocross
Sunshine! ☀️ Despite what others may say... #cyclocross in December is SO much better when it is sunny. Today @nbx_bikes Gran Prix of Cyclocross, Day 1, it was cold but clear and dry. I wouldn’t call it a beach day, but it was pretty good. I’m not so sure about Day 2 forecast for tomorrow. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #nbxcx #crossspikes #crossisboss 🚴🏽
It was “moist” at the CT Series of Cross finals @bishopsorchards #cyclocross #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering #ctseriesofcx #crossspikes @the_ccap #crossisboss
More #secretcx fun. Tom and Brett represented in the Masters race. #teamhorstsports #crossspikes @horsteng @racerockhard #cyclocross
#secretcx was really rad. The modified course (due to wicked wet fields) was “mountain bikey” and mint. They shouldn’t change a thing. #teamhorstjuniorsquad #teamhorstsports #crossspikes @horsteng @racerockhard #cyclocross
Three fun videos from the @nohocx Juniors 9-14 year old race this morning. These kids are all champs! @the_ccap #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering @victuscoffee @bicycleseastct #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #cyclocross #crossisboss
Last night’s @lutzmuseum Children’s #Poetry Reading was lovely. Our little #poet thrives in environments like this.
Good sunrise 🌅 ride. The extra sleep 💤 helped. The leaves 🍁 were lovely. #connecticut residents: Vote YES on Question # 2 #openspace #valleyfalls #boltonheritagefarm #cycling #hiking #trailrunning #sevencycles @ctforestandparkassociation 🚴‍♀️
