Wow, there is some really great info on the web right now about training and racing. Here are some links to some amazingly informative articles:
Your Ultra-Training Bag of Tricks - Unbonk!
How To Be An Ultra Pacer - Make sure to read Part 2 and Part 3 also. It's highly sassy, highly sarcastic, and highly funny.
Running......My Mouth! - I had felt a little silly wearing a belt buckle that I earned by running 100 miles. My buckles are at home collecting dust. My feelings changed a bit after reading this funny article.
Baker's Dozen Half Marathon - This sounds like such a fun race! I think I will run it! (Or be the race director for it.)
The funniest video I've seen in ages. It's actually a voice mail after a car accident. I sobbed with laughter. Guaranteed to be the best three minutes of your day right here.
The Definitive Explanation of a Race DNF (Did Not Finish) - Wow, this should be required reading for anyone before an ultra race. It delves into the enormously important mental side of running.
What Is Ultra - Very funny and very true.
Please, I beg of you, check each of these out. You'll get your share of laughs and be more prepared for your next race. Enjoy!
