Just getting into ultras and trails? Here’s a primer on running ultramarathons on a budget. My own thoughts: Treat it just like you do having a baby for the first time. There’s an impulse to go and buy everything available, but as any parent knows, half of that crap gets used once and passed on to someone else. When the second baby comes around, you know what you need, how it works, and what options you do or don’t require. Much like Scotty said in this interview…Be patient and don’t rush things and it’ll save you a ton of dough.

I’ll have Gavin and Dave on the show later this week to talk about their run.
