I have never run an ultra and I may never run an ultra - but the idea of (efficiently/beautifully/easily) covering long miles on trail seems to have been constantly on my mind for well over a year and - even though I am not truly part of the sport - UltraRunning Magazine is wonderful inspiration! To me this magazine is a great blend between a hardcore niche (almost fanzine) publication (a huge number of pages list simply list race results - and I don't mean top finishers, I mean all finishers... I just quickly counted 36 pages in the current issue that have results on them - sometimes taking nearly the entire page!) and a current glossy mainstream magazine (great pictures, articles on nutrition/training, book reviews, interviews...). Much like the sometimes 3 hour long Talk Ultra podcast I am not sure if this would be fun/casual content to anyone who is not an enthusiast, but if you are looking for inspiration/information and love ultra (or maybe even just trail) running this is well worth subscribing!
