Here are a few things to help get you motivated and out the door to train.
My favorite race report of all time is Tom Nielsen’s 1999 Angeles Crest report called the Dream Wrecker.
For a great insight on why you run and healthy view of competition, here’s the classic speech that Jeff Johnson wrote to the borderclash runners the night before the 2001 race.
And for videos, remember this from WS in 2007? You go, JizzleWizzle.
Finally, a little climbing juice. This is Jacqueline Florine, an ultrarunner and climber, soloing the Nose of El Capitan in 2002. She lead, cleaned, and hauled all pitches by herself over four days. Wow. Jacqueline also finished Badwater this past summer.
Now get out the door and go do something. Maybe run a few miles for Dan Moores.
PS. If you’ve had troubles connecting to my site over the last two days, please be patient as the machine that hosts it is being replaced/upgraded.
