Wyatt’s list of ten things that’ll make you a better and more durable ultra runner.

If you’ve ever been sidelined (and recovered) from injury, you must read Amelia Boone‘s latest post about her past year and how she’s navigating the future. Excellent perspective.

Thoughtful essay in iRunFar about the commercialization of ultra trail running and the #outdoorlife. Plenty to agree with and disagree with in there. What do you think?

Oh, here we go: Should ultra endurance athletes go keto? Chris Carmichael weighs in.

Do you have the need and desire to be alone? I know that’s one of the main reasons I run trails: No responsibilities, no expectations, just per selfish time for me and me alone.

“When I saw my 5 km split it was the first time in a race I’ve ever thought, ‘Why am I doing this?'”

Nevertheless, Kawauchi persisted and ran his 76th sub 2:20 marathon in freezing temperatures, taking an astonishing 30 minutes off of the CR. 

Mario Fraioli calls Kawauichi’s run the POY, but I’m assuming he’s being witty. More in his Shakeout right this way.

I believe this is the Roche life coaching model: Be more like a dog.

I’m guessing someone here would love this job: Bicycle painter in Chattanooga.

Which do you want to know more about? The Hoka Challenger ATR4 or the North Face Flight RKT?

Chime in! Which shoe should Ben start running in and review next? The Hoka One One Challenger ATR 4 or The North Face Flight RKT (aka the ‘Krar shoe’)? Comment below.

Just announced yesterday: Kaci is heading to Altra and Patrick Caron got picked up by Salomon. Both really good moves from both sides.

Men resist environmental action because they see it as “unmanly” and feminine. I’d like to see more of this study and drill down on the demographics.

Eric takes us on a rad trail run in a part of California that’s new to me.

It’s the beginning of the year. Meb shows us how to set good, realistic running goals.

Less stress, lower blood pressure, better thought processes, altered states of consciousness, and myriad other health benefits. Ultra trail running? Nope, drumming.

I posted my complete UROY ballot over at the URP Patreon page. I’d love to have your support as a Patron, even if you tell me my picks are crazy.  Thanks!
