The North Face Endurance Challenge 50-Mile Championships are this coming Saturday (Dec 3, 2016) and it should be a great race. Hoping Jim Walmsley is doing well after all of his hard racing because if Zack Miller goes out hard like he usually does and Walmsley goes with him a record may fall and it will be one fast race. Here is a preview of the race from iRunFar.com: 2016 The North Face 50 Mile Championships Men's Preview & here is the women's preview. Update 12/3/16 - Jim Walmsley decided not to run as he was not rested enough after the JFK 50 - can't blame him with all he has done this year, it was a smart move to not run.

Thanks to Mario Faioli's The Morning Shakeout I cam across a page at teh Runner's World site that has posted 50 of what they see as their best articles from over the past 50 years: RW 50 Selects. Wished they had some of their older original articles from farther back.
Looking like Under Armour wants to maybe break into the running market on a bigger scale: Dave Larson Joins Under Armour. I know for me I like their tops and run in them pretty much all the time. Have not tired their shoes but it will be interesting where they go with this and who will be the first big names in distance running to sign up with them.
