Trail Runner Nation
Dominic plays the mountain profile like a concert pianist plays the arpeggio. A well-executed run is like making music. Join us as we discuss with Dominic what he has learned from his mentors and absorbed directly from the San Gabriel Mountain range. Running uphill, recovering on the downs and cruising the flats set the stage for a hit song. This is a must listen.

Mike Morton, age 40, seems to be one of the top ultra runners lately. But some of you may be thinking his name sounds familiar. You’re right. Mike Morton, at the age of 25, was the first place finisher and set a new course record at Western States in 1997 but somewhat mysteriously disappeared from the ultra scene soon afterward. Where did he go? Faith, Don and Scott were honored to speak with Mike shortly after his record-breaking Umstead 100 mile race about his "sudden" comeback, his selfless service to his country and his super-human speed that has been bottled up.
