Ultramarathon Daily News | Thurs, Nov 2

Is the ultramarathon the new marathon when it comes to trying to impress your coworkers?

Oh boy, I could spend hours checking out this “heat map” generated by Strava. 

I haven’t been a regular baseball fan in decades, but admittedly got pretty wrapped up in this World Series. But after last night’s loss (yes, I’m a Dodgers fan), it was further obvious why I prefer individual sports. If I DNF a race or don’t run well, it’s 100% my fault, while there were plenty of  Dodgers who played great last night, but went home without a win because someone on their team screwed up, and those actions affected their results.  I’ll stick to running.

I had to watch this film again this morning: Excellent footage and storytelling about Tim Olson’s run at Hardrock.
