Ultramarathon Daily News | Thurs, May 31

The ultramarathon world has seen women dropping some serious performances over the past few years. Camille’s 100 miler at Tunnel Hill and Courtney’s Moab 240 win are just recent examples.

Hakone anime? Is that what I’m seeing here?

More loss of faith in the LetsRun boards: This guy asks why Asheville, NC isn’t the ultra/trail Mecca of the (b)eastcoast, but never once mentions breweries.

It’s not a good reflection on our society, civilization, or species that the NPS has to start a campaign reminding people not to take selfies with dangerous wildlife.

 

You're awfully quiet back there. Anything to say?
