E229 | Hoka Cielo X1, Olympic Trials, Kevin Salvano, Grit Party Recap

It’s Olympic Trials week for the marathon and we’re heading to Orlando (we’re actually already there). But don’t worry, we still found time to get weird for y’all. The big news this week is the release of the Hoka Cielo X1, a carbon-plated super shoe with a full Peba midsole and aggressive rocker geometry. It may be the most fun shoe we’ve ever worn. Before that, we talk about our favorite dark horse to win the Trials, our weekend at the Winter GRIT party, skinless dogs, and staring at ourselves in the mirrors to try and discover what we’re made of. If that sounds bizarre to you, you’re not wrong.

This Week’s Sponsor


This is episode is sponsored by LMNT, an electrolyte drink mix free of sugar, artificial colors, and other dodgy ingredients. We use it to replenish salt levels after all our hard efforts and it is hands down the best hydration and recovery mix out there. We’re super excited about the new LMNT Chocolate Medley, featuring Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Chai, and Chocolate Raspberry, designed to be enjoyed hot or swirled into your favorite recipes.

Our listeners can get a free LMNT sample pack with the purchase of any order. Pick it up ➡
