Good Stuff Sports #14 – Joel Salvino (The Wild West Trail)

Have you ever done any long distance backpacking or hiking? I’ve tried a little, with no success. Joel Salvino on the other hand loves it! So much so that he’s trying to create a new connected trail system called the Wild West Trail in the Idaho area that would be the HUGE! I learned a ton during this talk about supplies and gear and what it takes to plan for a long hike.

The Canadian National Pond Hockey Championships! What are the Canadian Pond Hockey Championships? You’ll need to listen to the source, John Teljeur, teach us about what makes Pond Hockey different. It sounds like a complete blast. In fact, it sounds like “Pondemonium” (that’s not my joke. I wish I were that clever).

Good Stuff Sports #11 – Jodi and Kara from Go! Go! Sports Girls

Jodi Norgaard and Kara Thom from Go! Go! Sports Girls have created some unique and creative sports themed dolls and accompanying stories for girls (or anyone) who love sports. They encourage young athletes to “be fierce and sparkle” as well as the ingenious hashtag #athleteisthenewprincess. It was great to hear how the idea came to be as well as where the dolls have taken Jodi and Kara (ie. The White House!). These dolls make great holiday gifts… if you know what I’m saying.

Good Stuff Sports #10 – Eater X (Tim Janus)

I remember watching Tim Janus in the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating competition on July 4th a few years ago. I thought his Ultimate Warrior facepaint was awesome. I think saw him on an MTV reality special which showcased how he goes about training and what his professional eating competitions are like. Tim graciously responded to a twitter message about coming on the show and talking about how he came to be a professional eater. It’s important to know that there is training that goes in to being on the professional eating circuit. What food does Tim recommend that aspiring pro eaters begin with? You’ll have to listen to find out! And the burping! This is a can’t miss episode.

Good Stuff Sports #9 – Tim, Stephen, and Peter from Wheel Kids

Bike riding! It’s not as easy as it looks is it? I talked to Stephen and Peter about their experiences with riding and Wheel Kids. Following that I was able to talk to Tim, the person behind the idea. I’m not much of a bike rider myself, but it was so interesting to hear about what they do and what they teach to kids who love to ride bikes. Additionally, they gave some great tips on places to ride in Northern California!
