Well apparently there was a runner attempting to run from Florida to Bermuda in an inflatable hamster wheel, basically. Things went bad and he needed a resuce from the U.S. Coast Guard. It takes all types, I guess. Hope he recovers well.
Not to be outdone, the guys at URP put together a list of the people that receive the most interest, in the U.S., as measured by clicks, searches, and website metrics. Not a bad list. Always good to see Shelton included. She gets far too little press, in my opinion.
Here’s an interesting compilation of the most influential “things” in ultra running. I say “things” because it’s not all people. While I think that some inclusions have much less of a place than others, it was great to see some lesser known faces in our sport be listed. Case in point, Bruno Brunod. I had barely heard his name before Kilian’s Cervina attempt last year at the Matterhorn. At this year’s UTMB, I was fortunate to see an advance screening of Seb Montaz’s 2nd Kilian film, Dejame Vivir, which featured Bruno and the history he has provided. Inspiring stuff.
