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
