iRunFar: Justin Mock turns his focus to Nick Clarke and pens an excellent update on what’s going on in his life. I had no idea about the cancer scare, but glad to see he’s doing better.

Cool: Labatt brewery in Canada retools their system and starts pumping out hand sanitizer.
Good thing: People getting out on the trails and recreating during the shutdown.
Bad thing: People ignoring physical distancing demands and running in mixed groups, picnicing with others, and ignoring health concerns.
Response: We closed all the parks.
Treeline Journal: Chase analyses Anton’s recent few months of training and sets up a scenario where he makes an exciting return to the racing scene. (It’s really a great article, actually, and I share his enthusiasm and reverence for Anton’s impact on our sport.)
Run Spirited: Six ways coronavirus will/may change ultrarunning. I think there’ll also be an uptick in races offering cancellation insurance. Any others to add?
RW: How pro runners and teams are coping with physical distancing.
Need something to listen to? I was on Billy Yang’s podcast last week and we dove deep into our love of MUT running, the importance of girls running, beer, Anton, and more. Give it a listen.
