In this episode, Corrine and Buzz chat about the expansion of trail running media coverage and how runners can “vote with their feet” to keep the smaller races alive. Then, Corrine talks to shoe guru Brian Metzler about carbon fiber running shoes and why they might not be the holy grail for trail runners. You can read Brian’s article “Don’t get FOMO about the twinkle of carbon finer on the trails” here. And Buzz answers Christian’s “Real Runner Questions” about The Bear.
