I found the two links below via Alison Wade's fine Elite Running blog. I enjoyed them, so I thought you all might too ....
-- A feature story on Beth Alford-Sullivan, the Hopkins High and U of M graduate who leads Penn State's men's and women's track and field programs. She'll be travleing between the Big Ten men's and women's meets this weekend in Indiana and Illinois to watch her teams compete.
-- An interview with Scott Jurek, arguably the world's top ultra-marathoner. (The media's fascination with Dean Karnazes notwithstanding.) Jurek, a Duluth native, is the seven-time winner of the Western States 100 mile.
Jurek's got an interesting web-site of his own, here.
