  • Podcast: East Coast Trail and Ultra - Jackie Merritt, Sarah Keyes and Jared Burdick share stories of pain, puke and elation after finishing the race that started it all. Plus Jackie lets us all know if she plans on going back to Squaw Valley for next year’s race. Plus the added bonus of Andy Jones-Wilkins filling in for Sean for half of the podcast. http://eastcoastultrapodcast.com/2017/06/28/episode-40-most-of-the-puke-came-after-foresthill/

  • Published an interview with Karen Bonnett Natraj this afternoon on the Running Stupid Podcast! I think it's one of the best interviews we've done so far! It really digs into Karen's back story and how much more of an amazing athlete she is than being the oldest female finisher this year with only 9 seconds to spare!

    Really hope you enjoy it!
