2018 Buck Fifty 1st place Finishers The Golden Bears.

Welcome back to the Hashtag 59 podcast!
This month we are running.  Running over 150 miles on no sleep, in the dark, and in state parks with rolling hills.  Only this month's podcast and adventure is about much more than running!

What are we doing? We are discussing The Buck Fifty.  

Dave Huggins, race director of The Buck Fifty, joins Mike and Amy on the podcast to discuss the 150 mile relay race that Dave designed and created and Mike has run in twice!
From the winter days to using MapMyRun to build the course to discussing leg #24, aka Black Diamond, to the actual mission of the race this is an episode you don't want to miss.

Whether you are Born to Run or prefer to never do it we think this is an adventurous conversation that will have you ready to get outside and connect with the world in an impactful way!
