iRunFar: Basic backcountry skills for new trail runners. Good stuff to know and to review from time to time.
I saw plenty of MUT folks (runners, writers, “influencers”) last week opining about the Russian skater who tested positive for doping, but didn’t see one person from this group (aside from Ross Tucker) write about the Lia Thomas situation at Penn. Surely, both have to do with gaining an unfair and unnatural advantage over female athletes, both are outside of our normal running “lane”, and both are somehow technically legal at this point. But no one will speak out about the injustice of what’s happening in women’s sports all because they’re afraid of being called a nasty name?
