MUT Daily News, Mon, Nov 23

A very comprehensive look at MUT running in the cold and staying warm by Fellrunr.

Ghelfi writes a quick analysis of the team scoring competition with opinions from some of the elites running.  I’ve updated my team analysis right here. Check out Salomon’s top three now.

Here is Justin’s weekend rundown of MUT results from around the world. Is it me, or does Jim Walmsley remind you of a young Scott Jurek? (No pressure, dude.)

…and yep, that’s URP guest (and grandmother who just started running in 2011!) Lorraine Young who snagged second at the competitive JFK50.

Niche sports (like MUT running) and the doping you don’t hear about.
