Here’s a great post by Jill about going into UTMB still sick and undertrained and fighting for every cutoff. Wonderful pics, too.
Ellie’s struggled with some injuries this year, but it still focused, smiling (of course!), and working towards the future. Here’s an update.
Could you spare one minute and take a quick survey? I’m trying to learn more about the URP audience as the site grows and have a quick ten questions. Consider it your very own fartlek round. (SURVEY CLOSED – HIT THE MAX. THANKS FOR FEEDBACK!)

Full ultramarathon results and more in Justin’s weekly wrap up.
Could Nenow have been faster with a GPS or with leg panties? Importantly, are there many elites today who have his raw drive and training regimen? I know a few.
Another triathlete cuts the course, gets DQed, and 86’ed from all future Ironman events. We read about course cutters in marathons and tris, but rarely in ultras. Why not?

Is the Manitou Incline clogged with tourists and hikers, or are you able to “run” it on a normal day?
I’ve been asked a lot about what type of gear I use to record. Here’s a rundown of my podcast kit.
Do you look forward to running with liars? I do. It’s always an adventure.
