Charlie is a West Coast transplant (my words, not his) who dipped into toes running by first trying a treadmill for a bit and then realizing there must be a better way and so he decided to start running trails and picked Many On The Genny as his first race. For those that don't know, that's a 40 miler. So, ya know... go big and all that. Since then Charlie has run some other races like Angeles Crest 100, World's End, and Twisted Branch 100k.

In this episode we wander around the surprisingly busy Genesee Valley Park with Charlie Granger. Charlie is heading to Western States this year! But he’s been out west before this… Angeles Crest 100 was his first hundred miler. He’s from the San Gabriel mountains, so you know, it just made sense. As for locally, you may have seen Charlie around Twisted Branch 100k, Many on the Genny or maybe most recently at Cayuga Trails 50k. This was a fun experiment of a podcast, Charlie and I participate in a quite eventful day at Genesee Valley park and chat about how his training is going, how he plans (or doesn’t) for these big events and just some life things in general. And as you’ll see, both of us have a bit of a fun time trying to remember, well… anything from the past. So feel free to shout into the air as you hear us stumble through a bunch of “thought exercises”
