Let's Get Out is a podcast for outdoor enthusiasts. They discusses all sorts of outdoor topics, from peak bagging, mountain biking, and skiing to land conservation and your favorite backcountry snacks.
For this month's episode, we sat down with former ultra-runners Cynthia and Ron Daniels to talk about the Wasatch 100, which has become one of the premier events on the ultra-running circuit, known for its tough terrain and beautiful scenery. Cynthia participated in 12 Wasatch 100s during the 90s and early 2000s, supported by her husband Ron, and they gave us an inside look at what it takes to prepare for and finish the race. Along the way, we also learned a bit about the evolution of ultra-running and heard some funny stories from the trail.
The race will mark its 40th anniversary this September. Visit the website to learn more about its history: https://wasatch100.com/.

Spring is officially upon us, and with that comes the joy of spring skiing and snowboarding! So to kick off season 2 of Let's Get Out, we sit down with writer and outdoor enthusiast Jared Hargrave to talk about spring riding in Utah. Jared penned the guide book Backcountry Ski and Snowboard Routs - Utah, so he knows a thing or two about where to find epic spring riding all over the state. We'll discuss where to go, what to bring, and, most importantly, why beer is such a crucial element to any spring outing. Sit back and enjoy!
Hey everyone! We have a special bonus episode for you today in honor of Pearl Jam kicking off the “Home Shows” tonight in Seattle. Julia and I will be attending show #2 on Friday night and we are PUMPED!
Through the Home Shows Initiative, Pearl Jam is partnering with local businesses and organizations in Seattle to fight the homelessness crisis in the city. This is a worthy cause and it’s great to see Pearl Jam setting an example for other parts of the country by stepping up to the challenge in Seattle.
You might ask, how are we linking Pearl Jam to the outdoors? Well, we’ve got 10 reasons why any outdoor enthusiast can appreciate Pearl Jam as a band, even if you aren’t a fan of their music. From surfing to campfires, we think we put together a decent list.
Park City, UT is one of the best places to mountain bike in the country, maybe even the world. Why? Well, that's our topic for this month's episode. We sit down with Nick Calas, a Park City local who has been riding the trails for over 30 years, to learn about the history of mountain biking in Park City, trail construction, some of his favorite trails, and much more. We're also introducing two new segments this month: Peak of the Week with Mo Peaks (aka Sam Grant) and Snack in Your Pack (check out our Facebook page for the Paleo Morning Glory Muffin recipe).
In February, we sat down with Julia Reich, PT, DPT, to discuss common injuries seen in outdoor recreationists, how to prevent them, and what to do when an injury occurs. Even though the episode focused heavily on skiing, the basic themes apply to all activities and are especially important when transitioning from one season’s activities to the next. So, we’re releasing the episode today as a bonus.
Julia is originally from New Jersey and practices outpatient physical therapy at Alta View Hospital in Sandy, UT. Outside of work, you can find her laying down skin tracks in the backcountry, ripping singletrack on her mountain bike, bagging peaks, or riding the lifts at Alta. An endurance athlete herself, she understands the concerns and frustrations of active individuals when it comes to injuries. Follow Julia on Instagram at @ja_reich.
