Check out our new podcast with Jacob Rydman. He’s only been doing ultras for 2 years, but has racked up some serious finishes and has his site set on NFEC next month.

Sounds like everyone had a great time at Lithia Loop Trail Marathon this weekend. David Laney and Becka Kem took honors, with URP’s Joe VanDeWater finishing a solid 9th. Oh yeah, there was also a Bigfoot sighting.

How to go from 3rd to 19th in a few easy steps: Gary Robbins’ Mountain Masochist Race Report.

…speaking of MM, that was a busy race this weekend! Past guest Meredith Terranova ran it alongside URP listener Andy Roberts, and Charlie Engle (who’s podcast we’ll release soon) was crewing for a buddy as well.

You’ve got two more days to enter Simple Hydration’s contest to win a free tuck bottle. ¬†Comments and share my video testimonial on the site and we’ll pick a winner on Wednesday.

Did you see my new review of the Icebreaker Quest Zip top? I’m a big fan of active wool, and this top fits the bill perfectly. Even looks good when I’m not running and it doesn’t stink.
