In Case You Missed It

March 19th, 2010 by Stacy

1. Dates and Venues for La Sportiva Mountain Cup 2010.

2. Nikki Kimball’s Dynamic Stretching Routine. As part of my new, uh, proactive approach to running health, I’ve begun mixing this into my warm-up. (You know, as opposed to just stumbling out the front door still half-asleep.) My legs thank me; my lousy hamstring especially thanks me. The companion video:

3. Photo I love (via Daily Adventures). The truth is, I could have chosen any one of a dozen or more standout photos from Gretchen’s Yosemite retrospective. Gorgeous.

4. Ed Whitlock Ran a 2:53 Marathon at Age 73. That’ll do. Good lord, will that do.

5.  Too Sexy for My Shirt. Outside Magazine has taken some amazing photos over the years. Their creative director recently selected a baker’s dozen of her favorites in the category “portrait of famous outdoor athlete.”

And one “In Case I Missed It:”

The blogosphere has been pretty quiet about what struck me as a fairly incendiary Scott Jurek profile in the April Runner’s World. (Available here behind a paywall; if you have a print subscription, access to the digital edition is free.) Is it simply beneath contempt?

    I like those stretches…perhaps I need to do those more consistantly/start doing them :)

    The Jurek thing got a bit of play on one of the RW forums … the whole thing was just kind of strange to me, and probably about twice as long as it could have been. Seemed like it took way too many pages to say “Jurek’s in a funk.” Maybe I’m missing the incendiary part – fill me in offline.
