Excellent post about Eleanor Adams Robinson, one of the OG ultramarathon women. Robinson was running during Ann Trason’s hay day and the two battled numerous times.
Bryon’s ode to the “home trail.” Yep, I’ve got one too. A nice little five miler on levee roads and trail that wisps along the American River behind my house.

Update: Brown University reinstates it’s XC and TF teams. WooHoo!
Sports Illustrated: Good, in depth article on serial ultra cheater Kelly Agnew, but I can’t help comment that I really wish SI paid attention to our sport during “regular” times and without the focus on scandal.

Japan Running News: This article about a sexual assault on a running path in Tokyo almost seems like a parody. What a nut.
