Trail Runner Nation (podcasts)
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.

The Kokopelli has held a prominent role in folklore, culture and traditions. Many authorities believe this celebration is justified as it is probable the Kokopelli allowed the homo erectus to avoid extinction. On such authority is Professor Richard Nelson. His research has provided the first look at the powers of the Kokopelli. Dr. Nelson shares with us the benefits of applying and wearing the Performance Enhancing Temporary Tattoo available exclusively on our site.
