The Story Of The Human Body – Be Healthier By Living Like You Were Meant To Live

For The Love Of Running

I ran the 2015 Bolder Boulder 10K, and the imprint of 50,000+ souls trotting along is still echoing within me. What a special thing.

Geoff Roes’ 2012 Iditorad Trail Victory – a lesson in endurance potential

Geoff Roes – an elite American ultra-marathon runner – won an incredible race in the rugged Alaskan outback last week. Though, instead of saying he ‘won,’ it would be better to say he ‘survived the fastest.’ The 350 mile foot-race took a full week to complete in absolutely insane conditions. He pulled all his own …

Copper Canyon Ultra 2012 – Congrats to All Runners

I did not race this year (see my report from the 2011 race), but over the past weekend 500 runners (including hundreds of Tarahumara) met in the bottom of Urique canyon and ran 50 miles through the heat, dust and rugged canyons in a celebration of the Tarahumara culture. My hat goes off to Caballo …
