  1. I love the free form any topic shows. In the spirit of that …
    Gary is officially a GOM (grumpy old man) with the EOTS (elf on the shelf rant). And I love it.
    Didn’t Krar DNF at JFK? I agree the kid has chops but it seemed to be a bit of an oversight in singing his praises when you guys (and me) have groused about DNF’s not appearing on U/S.
    I was listening to a track and field podcast recently. Two guys rambling about the sport. Guess what came up? A league, a point system, teams, etc. Hmmm.

  2. Never heard of Elf on a Shelf, sounds horrid. Plus, it doesn’t seem like a good idea to cede parenting authority to inanimate objects.
    Shaun Martin’s on my list of athletes I admire. He’s keynoting a Hopi-run runner’s forum in January, I’m hoping to go & meet him.
    I attended last year, and got a very different perspective on running. Just from my own view, there were/are Native runners who could make an impact on the ultrarunning world, but the sport isn’t seen as a viable living, as opposed to road running.

  3. Thank you for clarifying the whole cycling jersey phenomenon. It always made me wonder when I would see road bikers wearing a big team jersey and the biker could practically rest their head on their giant gut. I don’t think any runner, road or trail, would wear a team shirt/kit without being actually sponsored by them. I’m looking forward to the airing of grievances/ultra podcast crossover show, and I totally agree with Gary about the elf on the shelf. I don’t have children but I have to see it on my facebook feed everday, the endless witty ways that parents position the creepy voyeur.
