Ultramarathon Daily News | Friday, March 16

Brendan from semi-rad joins Strava and writes about it. I agree that it’s a great tool for measuring activity and holding one accountable, but that it can also be pretty…bizarre. And hey, hey, Brendan will be on the show on Monday to talk about adventure, humor, and his latest 50 mile ultramarathon. Stay tuned.
