Alex Varner has an awesome 2014. Consider.

London Marathon will have perhaps the stoutest field ever.

The Flagstaff weekly bagel run sounds like fun. Do you have a similar run where you live?

Arrowhead 135 preview. Dang, that’s going to be cold.

My prediction for the next trail running mecca (and it looks like Sarah agrees): Mammoth Lakes, California.

More on Wardian’s 50k track workout.

Be careful of speedework when base-building.

Welp, we’re only nine days in, and we already have the worst list of the year.

Wow. Confessions of an anorexic runner.

Ya gotta be able to look at running mishaps with a sense of humor and in perspective and carry on.
