Awesome video of the 2017 Barkley Marathons finish from Jamil Coury at Run Steep Get High
This was my first podcast, actually before 2017 Barkley. And before I figured out how to keep my eyes focused. This was an awesome experience for me and these guys were great. I wouldn’t hesitate to chat with them again at any time.

The slides aren’t visible, but if you really want them send me a message.
Leon Lutz did an unbelievable job writing this article. His description of my transition from loop 4 to 5 is by far my favorite that I’ve seen.

None of the 40 runners who attempted to finish the 100-mile Barkley Marathons in the mountains of eastern Tennessee completed the race, the first time since 2007 that the endurance test had no finishers. “The mountains won,” said Gary Cantrell, who created the event in 1986. “I was pleased with the outcome.
