Getting Lost
The surprise isn’t that ultrarunners get lost once in a while. The surprise is that they’re not all lost all…

I need an expert opinion on this running/beer question. I’ve heard that beer acts as an anti-inflammatory. Have you ever had a “cold one” after a hard run? Do you think it aids in your recovery?
