Episode notes

This week, Corrine and Buzz talk about what it takes to become a sponsored athlete—is it really just follower count?

Then, Buzz interviews Ultimate Direction ultrarunner Jeff Colt, about the difference between New England trails and Colorado trails, seeking balance, and how the pandemic actually helped him get to where he is today.
