Speaking of extreme distance, Lisa Smith-Batchen finished her double round trip Badwater crossing (complete with two ascents of Mt Whitney) yesterday.  Can’t wait to hear more.

And one more: She started in San Francisco on April 16, and finished yesterday in NYC. Wow!

Interesting: When running and religion collide. (Also, as far as I understand, a main reason that ultras in Utah start on Fridays…)

I’ve never done an adventure race, but this sounds like fun.

Can pickle juice really cure muscle cramps?
