Rebecca Redlines Cancer - Trailer
We're announcing a new series of podcast episodes that are planned coming up over the next couple of months. The series is called “Rebecca Redlines Cancer”, and we’re posting this trailer episode today to let you know a bit more about it. These episodes will be released along with our continuing format of individual interviews as we’ve been doing since May of 2020.Rebecca Sperry (see below for links to her website and Instagram) is an avid hiker who lives in New Hampshire.  She has been working on a plan since January 1st 2020 to hike all of the trails in the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire.  This totals about 2000 miles when you have to factor in going back and forth on certain sections, and it’s called redlining. With a paper map, the goal is to mark off every mile that you’ve hiked with a pen until every trail mile has been completed. Her goal was to complete all of the trail miles in 2020, and she would have been the first female to accomplish it in that timeframe - a single year New Hampshire redline.She was working on this project until August of 2020, and then she was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer. We reached out to her recently and proposed the idea of doing a series of episodes where she could talk about her redlining project, but more importantly, we wanted to speak to her about what her cancer experience has been like, what she has learned, get updates from her as she's going through treatment, and also highlight the fact that she is still pushing herself just as hard as she always was, as often as she can, while she's going through treatment.Tune in for this new series within the podcast, and we hope you will join us!Rebecca's IG: web site: the show (

First 99 Gear Review - Sunbrella and Hoodies - A Cocodona Experience
My Cocodona Redemption was an experience in planning, preparation, and prevention. But it was also a net sum energy equation and using the energy in the system as efficiently as possible. That meant eating, drinking, moving, resting, and sleeping on a regular rigid schedule to get the energy in and moving efficiently during the days and nights. One of the quickest ways to loose energy during the day is from solar rays.  Many of you asked, why is he wearing a hoodie and what is with the umbrella? Well, it again comes down to energy. When the sun is on your skin or blazing through your non-UPF-protected clothing your body responds to protect itself. To control your body temperature, you sweat. The cooling process requires energy and sweating leads to water and salt loss. So getting overheated and sunburnt leads to all sorts of problems. And with a 5-day race, you cannot afford to lose anything. This gear review focuses on the items I used to preserve my energy. Sunbrella - Lightrek Hiking (Chrome) Umbrella - Gossamer GearSun Hoodie - Sun-Protective Fabric Men's Hoodies | REI Co-opSun Hoodie - Search results: hoodies | Columbia SportswearSun Hoodie - Realtree CamoGloves - outdoorresearch.comVest - GOREWEARPoles - Trekking Poles | Hiking Poles | Black Diamond EquipmentBackpack - blackdiamondequipment.comRecovery - R8 Plus Deep Tissue Massage Muscle Roller | ROLL RecoverySnacks - eatbobos.comSocks - Shop All Socks | Injinji Performance ToesocksPrana Stretch Zion Pant II - prAna---Your hosts: Jessica Harris / Greg Larkin / Mike Turner Intro/outro music: Joseph McDade - Elevation: Mile 99 Interview is creating podcast episodes | PatreonVenmo | The Mile 99 InterviewSupport the show
