If you haven’t seen this footage of Max King crushing Goat Hill at Way Too Cool, check it out.

Today is day three of Stephanie Case somehow making it into the URP Daily News. Today it’s as co-conspirator (along with Amy Sproston) in Megan Laws’ excellent–and thorough–TransGrancanaria race report.

I’m going to assume that Megan, Amy or Stephanie would never order one of these. Or these.

The South Rim Trail in Big Bend NP (Texas) looks like it’s ripe for an FKT attempt. Couldn’t find one on the Boards…anyone know who’s got it?

Interested in learning more about Timothy Olson’s mindful approach to life and running? He just put out a Run Mindful app that may be up your alley. I downloaded it yesterday and will report back.

Someone wrote on Twitter a few days ago that “The world needs more Ladia“, and after yesterday’s interview with her, I couldn’t agree more. I’ll release the episode this afternoon and can guarantee that she’ll make you smile. I can’t remember the last time I was so happy after an interview.


You're awfully quiet back there. Anything to say?
