Ultramarathon Daily News, Aug 2
Most ultramarathon folks do back-to-backs at some point during training. Here’s how to do them right. (We’re having David on the show today to talk about all things training. Got questions?)

Some asshat is putting spike strips on the MTB trails in Marin. We use those trails too!
This tech is out of my league. Will someone care to explain what looks to be headphones that you wear all day that tell you when and how to run?
The unhealthiest meal list for 2016. Yikes, some of these are 3000+ calories!
Sarah’s article in Trail Runner about raising a daughter who appreciates running. Great stuff.
And I’ll throw in another plug for this book. I’m just about done, and can’t recommend it enough, especially to dads with daughters.

Great stuff that speaks to the father-daughter dynamic.

A brief history of beer and running.
I’m not ready to draw conclusions or start a gender war, but these results from Cambridge on words associated with male and female athletes are interesting. I wonder if it was narrowed down to MUT athletes, how different (if any) would the results be?
Here’s live mapping of Jared Campbell’s current Nolan’s 14 attempt.
And here are live updates and info on Karel and Joren’s PCT FKT attempt.
I’ve heard that many Kenyans and Ethiopians don’t get along well, but swinging at each other mid-race is a new low.
Long and funny report from Vol State 500k. When the story starts with Kim being stopped by three police cars, you know it can only get better from there.
Can we all agree that shouting “ISIS!” at a beer festival is uncool?
URP hero Ed Whitlock just set another world record for the 85-89 division in the 5000.
A UTMB video game? Ugh.
