Western States Playlist/Pictures

I’ve been enjoying the days after Western States to let it all soak in and be in this moment of my life. It was a very exciting time and something that will be with me forever. It’s nice when days go well, somedays they don’t.

Here is a playlist of music i jammed too as i frolicked along the Western States trails.  I’m positive there is a plethora of other inspiring artists/music out in the world, but here are a few songs that helped me to move along.

  • Into the Wild – LP
  • King and Lionheart – Of Monsters and Men
  • Little Talks – Of Monsters and Men
  • Comeback Kid (That’s my Dog) – Brett Dennen
  • Hey Hey Hey – Michael Franti and Spearhead
  • Home – Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes
  • I’m Yours – Jason Mraz
  • 40 Day Dream – Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes
  • The Sound of Sunshine – Michael Franti and Spearhead

    Awesome Timmy – I told you that your interview would be a great hit with the Talk Ultra community and it has been… currently topping the download charts! A great story, a great result and a great future ahead. I too am dreaming of six things before breakfast…. best wishes, Ian

    Inspiring run on a beautiful course! Good to see the occasional tunes can help to re-focus your energy towards the finish line. We going to see you at the starting line at TRT next week?

    Amazing stuff! I’m a mid pack runner when it comes to ultras, I can’t imagine what it would be like to win a 100 and set a CR. Congrats!!!

    Congrats to that achievement. I’ve been following you guys for quite a while and I must say I’m really jealous of what you guys can do, bear and enjoy. Hope I can finish an Ultra myself some day. Certainly looking forward to it.

    Regards from Germany!
