An exhaustive research paper on ultrarunning and ultrarunners.  Bookmark this for future reference.

As of this writing (4:20am), Joe Fejes is at 546 compared to Yiannis’ 538.5 miles at Across the Years.  Yiannis is making up ground and is apparently driven, though his lack of sleep has him weaving into trees and fences. The AR isn’t entirely clear. Here’s the story.

Speaking of ATY, here’s a pretty good report from a relatively new runner who won the 48 hour race.

NUC: How to win an argument with a nutritionist.

More on (SkyRunning’s) The Rut 50k in Big Sky Montana.

If you happen to be in the Cayman Islands tomorrow (I hate you), check out CI’s first road ultra.

There’s also the Harbison 50k in South Carolina, and a few different distances (incl a 100) at the Pistol Ultra in Georgia.

For you midwesterners, the Winter Challenge in southern Michigan sounds…cold.  Plan on -5 at the start. Brrrrr.

There’s another cold sounding race in WV–The Frozen Sasquatch 25/50k, and there’s also the Epiphany 60k Fatass in Oakland that I’ll be running. Sorry folks, the weather should be in the mid-60s. Ha!
