Around the World (Twice) in 21 Days - Running Times, 11/20/14.

Caught up with world trophy 50k champion Emily Harrison in advance of Friday night's 100k world championship.  Kind of discounted this race in previous years, but really looking forward to following it on Friday night.  I think the presence of the UK's Steve Way elevated it for me this year maybe.  I'm thinking we'll see at least one American individual medal, and probably two team medals.

Grand Teton + Yellowstone video

Most of our summer travel all happened so quickly that I fell behind on video making.  I don't have to make videos from every trip, but I think it's nice to have as an accompaniment to pictures.  Grand Teton and Yellowstone here then, and further below another video of play time with Elly.

Doubling the 100 Mile Distance - Running Times, 11/13/14.

A month or so ago, like many of you, I started seeing promos for the new Bigfoot 200.  I was intrigued, maybe just because of the name and my history with Bigfoot.  I wanted to find out more though and wrote this short article because of it.

Is Obstacle Racing Going Mainstream? - Running Times, 10/21/14.

I talked with Max King yesterday morning for this article. I don't really like the way the finished article reads - I mean, had a great chat and it could've been a much longer narrative.  I was rushing yesterday though.  Either way, pretty incredible - $30k win for 22 minutes of work.

Trail Running on the Big Screen - Running Times, 10/21/14.

The Trail Running Film Festival kicks off tonight in Boulder.  I'll be at the Denver show tomorrow night, say hi if you too are.  I haven't seen a lot of talk about this, but I think its a really good idea and I'm looking forward to it, so hope to see a packed house tomorrow night.

We saw the musical The Unsinkable Molly Brown on Saturday and although it was a good play, I'm mixed on the idea of Molly Brown as a heroine.  Yeah she helped a lot of people, but so badly wanting to get into Denver's upper class, that's not admirable.  And then from Wikipedia, she didn't talk to her kids for the last few years of her life after fighting over her dead ex-husband's inheritance.

Joe Gray, A One-of-a-Kind Mountain Runner - Running Times, 10/10/14.

Really been impressed with what Joe Gray has done the last couple of years - fast times on the track, road, at cross country, and of course on trails.  A One-of-a-Kind Mountain Runner.

A few weeks earlier I talked to new USATF 50k trail champs Tim Tollefson and Megan Roche for this article, Road-to-Trail Talent Continues

Tyler Sigl, Making an Ultra Splash - Running Times, 9/19/14.

A lot of times, by the time my stuff gets online, its outdated and I have to skip over stuff like The Rut, Run Rabbit Run, etc, and try to find other stories.  Last Sunday night then I talked to Tyler Sigl for this short article - Making an Ultra Splash.  He was a NCAA D3 cross country champion not that long ago, and ran a 5:27 50-miler last weekend.

A week prior to that, a preview of the 30th World Mountain Running Championships - U.S. Team Have World Mountain Championship Medal Hopes.  Allie McLaughlin earned the only U.S. individual medal, a bronze in the senior women's race.

And then also getting online last week was this article, Super-Distance Dogs, that first appeared in the September print magazine.
