Good times last night at the Ultimate Direction headquarters celebrating the new website and launch of the women’s specific Jenny Collection which is available online today and in stores this week. The newly crowned “Ultrarunner of the Year” Michele Yates - Suszek is holding the “Ultravesta" she wore in her latest win at TNF50, while Anton Krupicka and I are showing updated versions of our Signature Series Vests. And the speedster in the middle is Mr. Sage Canaday who loves his Jurek Essential. It’s a pleasure to work with the talented crew at UD!

Catch my episode of The Weather Channel Originals new TV series “Freaks of Nature”.  We shot on location in Death Valley and at the University of Montana in May and I’m excited to see how it turned out.  The show takes a look at “real people that defy nature” like Laird Hamilton and William Trubridge.  Tune in tonight at 10:00pm EST on The Weather Channel.

iRunFar Scott Jurek Pre-2013 Leadville 100 Interview

Scott Jurek’s taken a bit of a break from competitive racing. He’s taken an even longer break from the Leadville 100, at which he placed second in 2004, his only running of the race. In the following interview, Scott talks about his time away from racing, what made him choose Leadville as his comeback race, how much longer we might see him race competitively, and what his nutrition will look like on race day.
