New episode! Oz Pearlman is a professional magician, runs a 5:25 50 miler and a 2:28 marathon. Of course we had to have him on the show. Enjoy. (That’s Oz, Jurek, and Mike Arnstein in the pic on the front page.)
Ultrasportslive.tv will be out broadcasting live from Dick Collins Firetrails 50 starting at 6:15am on Saturday. Ann Trason used to be the RD of the race (and she still has the CR) and it historically has a solid group of competitors up front. Weather should be great too!
