Ultramarathon Daily News | Fri, July 26

Clint McKnight back with you again to give you some headlines while Eric is out. We made it to Friday! Anyone have any big weekend adventures planned?

If you need some help thinking or planning those adventures and want take advantage of public lands, here is a list to get you going.

Run uphill or walk uphill? Killian may have settled that question of economy for us.

Wow, good for this woman for standing up for herself. Shame on bystanders who didn’t help, hope the creep gets apprehended.

Does it matter what time of day you train? It seems that as we have heard before consistency is probably the key.

I don’t really know what to do with this one as anything I say will like spark some offense one way or another. I will simply say I don’t really agree with this perspective and I since I have both volunteered at races and benefited from volunteers I don’t like the shaming that goes on in the article. However, this viewpoint can perhaps start a conversation that could have positive outcomes. You get to decide that I guess, hello world of 2019.
