Speaking of TV, did anyone else (besides, ya know, the entirety of Japan) catch the final day of the Hakone Ekiden? Great races! Hoping that next year there’ll be an English broadcast.

No ultra/trail news whatsoever, but it’s written by a runner about a service/platform many of us use: What’s the most important technology brand of our time? And hopefully it’ll put an end to these horrible things.

Hardrock Hundred adds three new members to its Board of Directors, including one who’s never run an ultramarathon.

Three simple tips for winter motivation.

Eight long trails that probably aren’t crowded.
