H/T to Eric Schranz @ ultrarunnerpodcast.com for this story.
I love reading URP Daily News. It's like reddit for ultra runners. This mornings edition included a blog post entitled "Have we reached 'peak beard’? Good, because I’m not trying to be trendy" from The Telegraph. Please let this be true. I admit, my roots are in counter culture fashion; I was an adolescent skate punk/goth; not afraid to wear ridiculous attire or even make-up. These days, however, fashion equals comfort and utility. Sweats or shorts and tech shirts win out most days, and now that summer is here flip flops will be my go to footwear.
That said, Twirly did just paint my toenails for the Lake Sonoma 50 Mile.
