Race Report: 2013 Leona Divide 50 Miler

I did it. First 50 miler in the books!

Hello, my name is Ethan Newberry and I am an Ultra Runner. Hot DAMN, I’ve been waiting to say those words for awhile now!

The Leona Divide 50 Miler was my very first 50 miler race, my first run longer than 32 miles, and it gave me a taste of what […]

Review / Giveaway: Holy GU Brew Electrolyte Tablets, Batman!

Gu Brew Electrolyte Tablets

Drinking plain ol’ water can be boring and having to shove so much of the same liquid inside me makes The Ginger angry. GINGER […]
