We’re back after the holiday break with our first selection of great article reading and video watching for the year. We have two videos, one about the epic Dragon’s Back race in Wales (UK) and a more spiritual one about runners connecting with ancestral lands in North America.
We’ve also found some great tips for you for running in cold (or freezing) weather, some answers to FAQ about running and an incredible 35-long list of running benefits. We top it off with a personal piece by Dane Rauschenberg about running under different weather conditions and RunUltra’s very own James Eacott has put together 5 great breakfast alternatives to ensure you get all the energy you need before running. Enjoy.
