Daily News: UTMB love; Bi-ceps!; Mountainman and Gretel Fortmann; Barefoot Ted; Everest Trail Race

Happy Friday people (or Thursday afternoon / evening if you’re reading this in the US). If you’re in the UK, you should be in bed :). Here’s a daily dose of trail and ultra goodness.

Happy running this weekend people, and remember… run long, run hard, run honestly and most of all, run for the love of it…

  • Ryan Sandes is in Leadville – watch his latest video
  • Tis the season for the ultras… UTMB is nearly upon us. To get you in the mood for the mountains, have a gander at this epic video.
  • Now us runners are quite a skinny bunch, this guy certainly ain’t! Bench press world record anyone?!
  • A beautifully shot short film about the Mountainman race in Switzerland… 80-odd clicks and 5,000m of ascent. Sweet. And it features one of our lovely Aussie locals, Gretel Fortmann too, which makes it even nicer.
  • Barefoot ted shares his philosophy… it’s quite simple really.
  • Want to run a trail race around Mountain Everest?

I'm a mediocre runner who can bat above his average when I train hard. A man of extremes, I do enjoy everything life offers and consider it an absolute pleasure just to be able to put one foot in front of the other and let my mind wander somewhere different.
