Ultrarunner and The Cranked Calorie

Thanks again to ultrarunner extraordinaire Dirt Dawg ( for keeping the endurance sport world aware of all things great and new.

Dawg gave a shout out for two new web sources that will surely add to your your training - Ultrarunner and The Cranked Calorie.

Can't wait to download all ten of the currently available podcasts on Ultrarunner  This site features interviews with elite runners like Geoff Roes and all time ultra madman Gary Cantrell, promoter of the Barkley Marathons, among others:  (NOTE:  I had to delete "feed" at the beginning of the RSS link and replace with "http" for it to work with my Zune software)

And for the cultured among us, how about an online literary magazine for endurance sport?  Hold onto your bladder pack because here it comes...The Cranked Calorie. This site promises a "summer sweat edition" soon with categories including poetry, fiction, "truth" (product reviews) and art.  There's a submit form for subscribing to the work and I can't wait to see this material hit my mailbox:

It's wonderful to have access to an ever growing base of work that comes across our computers, onto our screens and into our listening devices.
