Article about Courtney Dauwalter. The men vs. women angle is bunk. Don't focus on that, and it's a good article. But what gets me is this quote:
"A faction of ultrarunning has argued that these events are not really a “race.” They say that the 100-plus-hour cutoffs allow less competitive runners time for sleep, and more time is spent hiking than running."
Thought LetsRun would be amused. It happens at every distance...
