On today’s show, the first two interviews are from The Running Event in Orlando, Florida.  We start with Vinu Malik who founded a company called FuelBelt. Learn what the early prototypes of his hydration system were made of, and how he grew the brand to what it is today.

We then sit down with David Meerman Scott who gave a great talk on marketing in 2016, including all the things Trump did correctly to win the popular vote. (PS This is in a marketing context, not a political one).

The second set of interviews is from Conyers International Horse Park, site of the Georgia Spartan Super.

We grabbed a bunch of athletes shortly after they crossed the finish line. Listen in as we talk to several top finishers, including:

Our final chapter for this year’s World’s Toughest Mudder podcasts ends with female champion Stefanie Bishop. You may remember we chatted with Stef a year and a half ago. At that time, she was swinging through town after winning an endurance event called The Gauntlet. On today’s show we talk about all she has been up to since that last interview, her secret plan for winning WTM, a bonus tip on how to complete “Operation” and much more.

Before we get to Stef, we talk to our pal Nickademus Hollon again. We left Nick the day before WTM after reading his amazing blog about his great plans and high hopes for World’s Toughest 2016. Things did not work out as he planned. Find out what happened, and if he is going to come back.
