Blogs are to trail running as journals are to distance hiking. And as with journals, there are so-so blogs, good ones, and then a few that are both very well written and highly informative. Of the latter, I've found Scott Dunlap's blog to be one of the best.


Dunlap does ultramarathons, triathalons, and trail running. Unfortunately (at least for those of us in the east), most of his entries are for west coast events. That said, reading his account of the American River ultra made me decide that will be my first 50-mile race.

For those of you unfamiliar with trail running and ultras and want to read a first-person account to get an idea what it's all about, I'd suggest that you start with Dunlap's blog. He also provides many good links for further info. Give him a read -- I think you'll be glad that you did.
