Daily News, Fri, May 24

Cory previewed the Bryce course and took a bunch of pictures. Wow! Looks awesome!

The 200 milers started yesterday. The 150 start today, and those wimps only running a hundred start tomorrow. Welcome to the Pigtails Challenge.

Are you ready for your summit photo this weekend?

There’s a pack burro race this weekend (you listened to the latest podcast, right?) in Colorado and GZ’s got all the info right here.

Check out this video of the trails in New Zealand. As Liz Lemon would say…

…but if you can’t make it across the world, check out this incredible video of Rainshadow Racing’s Sun Mountain 50 in Washington State. Wow!

This calendar looks an awfully lot like Scott Jurek is running Leadville this year. First time back after a nine year hiatus. Hope he kills it!

The biggest running mistakes and how to fix them.

Shannon Farrar-Griefer is obsessed with Badwater. Maybe she should hang out with this guy, who completed thirty Ironman distance triathlons in one year. Wow.

It’s a long one, but here is Brendan Davies’ TNF100 race report.  After this peak, I’m anxious to see what’s next.

Here’s a quickie with Mike Wolfe.

We’re heading into the studio today to pick the brain of one of the most experienced hundred milers in the country. Any guesses?

And hey, it’s also our birthday! URP turned two this month and we forgot to throw a party. Thanks for sticking with us during our start, our growth, and our hazy mornings! If you’d like to help keep the party going, please head over to the Donation Aid Station and earn yourself a sticker and some good trail karma. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

Wow, here’s an amazing trail in Canada! Anyone ever run this before?

What sports have seen the biggest growth in the past two years? Interesting findings that I didn’t expect.

And no, I didn’t feel the earthquake last night. The URP World Headquarters and Entertainment Complex suffered no damage.

Next week’s Daily News will be sketchy. I’ll be on the road and will get to it the best I can. My apologies in advance.
