Ghelfi: If you run 100 milers, read this report from Ryan Ghelfi’s run (and win) at Scout Mountain. He went into it focused on the process rather than the outcome and that seems to have made a big difference. Lots of great lessons within.
Koop: Three little things that go a long way for ultramarathon runners.
Stickers have gone out to $5+ Patreon supporters. I still have a bunch to send out, so hang tight. Thanks everyone.
Shoes: Ooh, ooh, I’m excited about this! I love racing in xc flats and Altra is getting in the game!
Amanda Basham interview release this afternoon. Stay tuned.
Mountain Outhouse: John Kelly, 24hr teams, Mocko re ITRA’s platform, Western hype, Nao Kazami and Sage Canaday at Comrades, and more.
California Untamed: I like the route this guy is taking…from Eureka to Mt Shasta traverses some of the most beautiful terrain in the country. One thing though…he’s running straight through the Emerald Triangle and better be careful.
IRF/AJW: Another nice remembrance of Mark Richtman. I wish I’d known him better.
World Famous Message Boards: Someone asks (trolls?) a decent question about trail running, Sage Canaday responds with a good answer, and another guy has some sh*tty response. Welcome to LetsRun, folks.
Advice: Has anyone had a cast removed and x-rays taken in Portugal? We’ll bring Sunny’s med records with us, but what’s the process and approximate cost? Any help would be appreciated. Obrigado.
