Compelling essay from the head of Salomon in Asia: Ultramarathon events and 100 milers are not the future of trail running…the future is in shorter, more attainable distances.  I certainly see his angle and have seen the data that shows the number of people who run one 100 miler, punch …

I broke down and got a membership to Anytime Fitness. It was a coyote in the neighborhood that finally pushed me over the edge. I’ve been skittish ever since I got attacked by a dog in DC, and I’ve been running with pepper spray, and sharing the dark neighborhood streets with the coyote seemed like too much. If I lived out in the country, a coyote would be one thing, but I’m in the city. City coyotes seem like trouble. And I’m too tired for trouble right now. So it’s me and a bevy of late night weirdos at the […]

Kyle Richardson was only 22 years old on Aug 1, when he set the new FKT on the high and technical LA Freeway. His time of 16hrs 28mins 53secs bettered the time of 16hrs 59mins set by Matthias Messner just last year. “The LA Freeway links Longs Peak, the tallest in Rocky Mountain National Park, with Arapaho Peak, the tallest in the Indian Peaks. It’s above 12,000 feet the entire time. It’s an iconic line - this is what you see on the skyline looking west.” “For 14 hours I didn’t see a soul, even though I was right above Boulder, almost in sight of Denver”. There was no water the entire distance, so Kyle describes how he stashed 3 liters of water in two locations, and why this Self-Supported style made the most sense. The route is rated 5.6 in difficulty, but Kyle was ready for it: “Find what inspires you. Then put in the time to learn the route; respect the route. Practice."
