Do you know where the name steeplechase came from? Cause we don’t. It doesn’t stop us from theorizing, not that we have a good answer. After that, we also recap the first week of Summer GRIT and Meg kicking ass and taking names at a festive 10K race. As always, there’s some shoe talk, so we spend a little while talking about how much we love the Nike Pegasus Trail 4.
After that, we sit down to chat with a woman who not only ran Western States this year but won the damn thing. That’s right, Ruth Croft stops by, which is freakin’ awesome. Even better, Ruth ran the third-fastest time ever. She tells us about her training, her strategy (including her fueling), and how the heck she got into ultrarunning in the first place. As a Terrex athlete, of course, there’s some time to talk about the latest that Adidas has been cooking up.
