In this week’s Fireside Chat, we had the pleasure of welcoming back one of our all-time favorite guests, none other than the incredible ultra trail runner extraordinaire, Brandon Hozack. Brandon provides us with an ultra trail runner’s wisdom as well as his preferred food choices during our rapid fire questions at the end.
The Challenge Ahead: Cocodona 250
Brandon is gearing up for an epic adventure in 2024 as he prepares to take on the formidable Cocodona 250. Armed with the wisdom gained from his challenging DNF (Did Not Finish) experience in 2023, he’s ready to conquer new horizons. In this riveting conversation, Brandon opens up about the invaluable lessons he learned during Cocodona 250 and how he’s masterfully applied those insights to achieve remarkable finishes at Hellz Bellz 50 and Oregon Cascades 100, organized by Bivouac Racing and Alpine Running, respectively.
Food Adventures with an Ultra Runner
Of course, our Fireside Chats always take unexpected and delightful turns, and this one is no exception. We ventured into the world of food choices, uncovering some of Brandon’s top 3 candy preferences. The great candy debate reveals more than just taste; it offers a window into the runner’s soul. And who can resist the allure of Pop-Tarts? Is it better toasted or straight out of the wrapper? We answer that burning question too. Plus, we delve into the ultimate brownie debate: edge or center cut? The battle lines are drawn.
