Ultramarathon News, Thurs, Dec 17

There may be some incredible ultramarathon records set this weekend at Desert Solstice. Here’s a preview of all the track madness.

People who are upset about this race generally aren’t people I hang out with.  So good news, I guess.

Sabrina Moran updates us on what she’s been to and how she got so dang chubby.

I agree with this article: Cycling does seem to be “the new golf” for business folks.  Why cycling though? Does much business get done on the trails?

Ten low key European ultramarathon races. That Ultravasan 90 in Sweden sounds particularly alluring.  Did any get added to your bucket list?
