No new submissions for Featured Friday, so I’ll continue reach into the reserve of sites that I personally love to visit. Since I mentioned them in my review of Born to Run, I figured why not feature them this week…
I like to think that one day, I will be able to conquer an ultra. I know, I’m currently training for my first full marathon and I’m already talking about ultras. Its an addiction.
I admire the ultra community. Although I don’t have any near future plans to run an ultra, I think their mindset is the best to copy in my own endurance feats.
Scotty Sandow and Eric Schranz host URP out of Sacramento, CA. Every episode, they provide a great resource of information on running with topics such as gear, technique, diet and beer. Yes beer, the sacred nectar of the ultra runner.
Most weeks, they are able to snag an interview with someone from the ultra running community. To name a few: Jenn Shelton, Barefoot Ted, Scott Jurek, and Christopher McDougall; all of which were featured in McDougall’s Born to Run. Others include Catra Corbett, Dean Karnazes and my neighbor in Saint Clair Shores, Kevin Green.
Each episode proves to be highly entertaining and useful, so if you haven’t subscribed yet do so.
If you or someone you know has a site that you would like to be the next Featured Friday. Enter a submission here. I can’t promise to feature it, but I do promise to view and consider all submissions.
