Dispatch #2: That’s Soooo Boulder

No matter which side of the Boulder bubble you find yourself there something for everyone in this That’s So Boulder edition of Dispatch Radio. Recorded live at Boulder Running Company, this episode examines what makes Boulder, Colorado such a unique, qualified hub for outdoor activities… and the butt of many a fellow Front Ranger’s jokes. We catch up with Boulder Hiker Chicks founder Alli Fronzaglia and the rest of her group as they’re doing the Boulder Five Peak Traverse in unseasonably warm shirts. Youth MTB coaches Katie Mardis and Kay Tuttle discuss getting kids hooked young (on mountain biking and being athletes, obviously), Gociety partner Jason Antin reveals a very Boulder alternate use for the First Flatiron, The “Boulder Runner” Todd Straka lets us in on his secret identity as an 80’s musician and Jayme Moye climbs El Capitan with Yosemite big wall legend Hans Florine… because why not? Beer support provided by Boulder Beer with a special soul-warming meal from our friends at R.A.D. (Real Athlete Diets).
