Read this: What trail runners need to know about tics and Lyme disease.

Is there anyone with a more diverse 2015 racing schedule than Max King?

Kelsie does a good job of explaining why she runs. Seems we all share many of those sentiments.

Three HRM mistakes everyone makes.  Nope. If you don’t have one, you’re not making any of them.

Another reason I think Mammoth Lakes will be the next MUT hub. The place seems perfect for elite training: Altitude, trails, elite-level facilities, great breweries, accommodations for athletes…all within a few hours of the big west coast races.

I truly appreciate it.
