Episode 63 – Catching Up with Leah Brasher

In A Skirt Podcast

Leah Brasher is a repeat guest. She was on my podcast last year, along with three other ultrarunners. I asked her to be back on the show because she’s been the queen of virtual races these last few months and I wanted to talk to her about that. Leah is a nurse and an avid runner. When races started getting canceled in March, Leah decided she wanted to find a way to support one of her favorite small racing companies—Trail Racing Over Texas, aka TROT. She did this by signing up for many of TROT’s virtual races. Since March 21st, Leah has completed about a dozen virtual races, including three 100Ks and four 50Ks. In this episode, we talk about her virtual racing adventures and how to support smaller racing companies. Also, Leah messaged me after the interview and asked me to share some information that she forgot to share while talking to me. TROT’s next virtual race will be the Trans-Texas Virtual Run. This is a virtual run across Texas…879 miles. You can run this distance by yourself or as part of a team. Registration is already open and the race starts July 1st.  Show Notes: Trail Racing Over Texas (site) Trail Racing Over Texas (Facebook) Trail Racing Over Texas (Instagram) Follow In A Skirt: In A Skirt Website In A Skirt on Facebook In A Skirt on Instagram In A Skirt on Twitter

Episode 9 – Cindy Springs, Juan Acevedo, Keisha Williams, and Leah Brasher

In A Skirt Podcast

Fun. That’s the word that keeps popping into my head when I think of these four and the time I spent talking to them. They know how to enjoy life…and not just bits and pieces of life, but the big picture of life. One works at a prison. One is a nurse. One is a beauty salon owner/master stylist. One is a fourth-grade teacher. On the surface, they are the “average Joes” you meet every day…except that there’s nothing average about them.  All four of these people are ultrarunners. They have completed several extremely long-distance races, including 100 milers. I invited them over to my house to get to know them and ask them why they decided to start running ultras and what keeps them going. Warning: there’s a lot of talking over each other and laughing in this episode, and that’s because we sat down in my dining room and simply had fun sharing stories.  Trail Racing Over Texas (website) Trail Racing Over Texas (Facebook) Lufkin Area Pacesetters (LAPS) Tejas Trails Screaming Monkey 100 Chevron Houston Marathon Habanero 100 San Antonio Rock ‘N’ Roll Rocky Raccoon 100 Brazos Bend In A Skirt Website In A Skirt on Facebook In A Skirt on Instagram In A Skirt on Twitter
