I think a lot of people feel this way about diet.

Ian Sharman investigates whether beards make you run faster.

Flume Trail

I ran the Flume Trail in Tahoe on Saturday and had a blast. One of those “I couldn’t be happier than I am right now” types of runs.

Good stuff: Fartlek training for ultras.

Meb is still a badass.

Ultra-lawyers who have left practice for the trails. Cool!

Good stuff: Should we stop worrying that running is not on TV?

Max King qualifies for the Olympic Trials in the Steeplechase on Saturday night, then wins the USATF 1/2 Marathon Trail Championships (again) the next morning.

Speaking of serial racers, you’ve heard our new podcast with Mike Wardian, right? This is Iron Mike’s 3rd time on URP, and there’s a reason we keep bringing him back…he’s a nice guy and a total badass.

Big congrats to Jeff Browning for taking top honors at San Diego 100 (full splits and results.)  Inside Trail’s Tim Long pulled out a nice third place, and URP Endurance Team members  Joe VanDeWater, Ken McKee, and Deno Dean all had a great time.  Nice work fellas!

Wow! Check out these pics/video of the Welsh Ultrarunning Series!
