Hosted by
Scott & Don

We talk with three of Nike’s newly-formed Trail Elite Team: Sally McRae, Chris Vargo, Alex Varner, and Team Manager: Pat Werhane.  This interview was recorded the afternoon before Chris and Alex finished #1 and #2 at a 1200-participant, Way Too Cool 50K.  Some of the topics we discuss are:

  • How to adjust for weather or course conditions?
  • Is there race-day cooperation between team mates?
  • Trusting your training
  • Pre-race pump up songs

Sally: “Back it up” by Gwen Staphanie

Chris: “Helecopter” by Bloc Party

Alex: “The Sign” by Ace of Base       uhhhhh, yea 🙂
