Happy Diwali everyone! Two years I was in New Delhi during the celebrations and have still never seen anything like it. May your lives be as vibrant, colorful, and magical as the lights of Diwali.
The Bear has been floating around in my head for years as a 100 I’d like to run, but the elevation scares me away. (I live at 37′ above sea level…anything over 6k’ hurts.) Here’s a good report from this year’s race.(link fixed)
We’ve talked on the podcast about the lack of females in MUT media–specifically behind the lens or behind the mic–so it’s great to see a new podcast available with a female perspective. Check it out right here…Candice Burt chats with Courtney Dauwalter about her run at Big’s and more.
The water stations with so many cups on the ground and so many people crossing from one side to the other for last second decisions. Or just stop in the middle of the road. Nonetheless I had fun time. Also, the funny posters people had out on the course. Took time to laugh!!! https://t.co/UR316cdy00

Another thing that binds us together as runners: Crying at races. Why do we do it?
Women’s field for the North Face Endurance Championship from Bryon at IRF and I think I agree with nearly all of it. Ida, YiOu, Clare, Keely, Camille all make sense for the top five. I’d also add Addie Bracy and a proxy vote for Ladia from Sunny. Also hoping Risper’s visa comes through so we can see what impact she’ll have on this already incredible field.
Any other youth (K-6) coaches out there? I’d love to hear more ideas about making and keeping track/xc workouts fun and exciting. I learned yesterday that if something is timed (anything!), they love it. Thanks for the help.
Or I know something else. Don’t discontinue shoes that people want.
