Feeling unmotivated and sloggy on this Tuesday? Here are the three enemies of action.
Comrades Finishing Time Geek-A-Palooza: Here’s what happens when mathematicians and ultra runners collide. Definitely heavy on the mathematical modeling but good insight to how the online finishing time calculators predict times.
Brian takes us on a photographic adventure of the trails around Mount Saint Helens. Awesome!
Over six days, Joe Fejes logged 975km, or just about 606 miles on the course! That’s a hundred miler a day for six days straight. Unbelievable!
Will this new optical HRM be the end to chest straps?
Check out this awesome artwork by trail running artist Maggie Tides. That three-piece WS100 print is beautiful!
Ugh. Another massive quake hits Nepal. Poor people.
Martin dropped 7 hours off his hundred mile time in one year (to a sub 17!) How’d he do it?
Dom Grossman on his training for UTMB. Be careful. Be smart. Have fun.
Is the trail ultramarathon next? Would it be a bad idea?
Has anyone made their own hydration pack? After this article, I’m inspired to try, though I’m confident the results would be disastrous.
I remember well when Sarah and I interviewed Liza Howard about her Umstead-while-breastfeeding experience. Here are some more incredible stories from women who don’t let anything stop them.
Haha: Tough Mudders defeated by normal conversation. But I suppose it’d be just as easy to replace “ultrarunner” with “Tough Mudder”, wouldn’t it?
Correction/clarification: In the John Trent interview, Sarah and I were chatting at the end about what will happen when Western States chooses a new title sponsor for the event. I was incorrect and not clear. Though Montrail’s contract with WS100 is up after the 2015 running, they will be bidding again for the spot and are every bit a consideration as any other company. My apologies for the confusion.
