Full report from how everything went down, courtesy of iRunFar. A few years ago, 2nd place for Anton would be disappointing, but now it’s just nice to see him back. Check out his week leading up to the race.  Awesome!

A nerdathlon!

…and an awesome preview of a trail ultra on the island of Borneo.  If I ever won the lottery, this is the type of stuff I’d do.

…and a great video of Tahoe Rim Trail 100 from last week. Thankfully, I don’t need to win the lottery to go this one!

Just a reminder that I’m on vacation for two weeks so no stickers/koozies will be mailed out. My Executive Assistant (who inhabits my body) will be on break.  Thanks!

There’s a new hundo coming to the Southwest, courtesy of Ian Torrence. Route from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon, ostensible all at altitude. Stay tuned for more info.

Burro Days was this weekend in Colorado. Pics here.  Still waiting on results, but these are the rules for an ass race. If you don’t know what the heck this is all about, you missed our interview with George Zack.

Only 3 days left to sign up for the UltraPedestrian’s Wilderness Challenge. If I were in the Pacific NW I’d be all over this!
