Ian Corless’ Transgrancanaria preview. Dang, that group of Kaci, Maciel, Huser, and Mauclair will be fun to watch!
Treeline Journal: Chase reviews In Search of Al Howie and comes away with some serious lessons and motivation for what’s possible. If you’re interested, here’s our interview with author Jared Beasley.

Music: How am I just hearing about St Paul and the Broken Bones now?!? WOW. Can’t wait to hit some trails and groove out to this.
Mario’s Morning Shakeout: Atlanta, Atlanta, shoes, and more.

Slate: Jim recaps his run in Atlanta. From my perspective, Jim has really put the naysayers to bed these past few months. Nevermind his OTQ run, but he took on quality (and public) training, kept his head down, raced honestly, and has been nothing but humble since the Trials.
TrailRunner: Updates on other trail runners who ran in Atlanta. Tons of great performances out there that will make this MUT spring/summer all the more exciting.
Ultrarunning Mag: A solid passive aggressive essay written to people who leave dog poop bags on trails. Agree 100%, come on people!
