Friday Inspiration: Transvulcania

The international ultra running session starts in earnest this weekend with Transvulcania, run on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands. There is a really great group of runners there this year (check out irunfar for interviews with Dakota Jones, Emelie Forsberg and others). I’ll never run an ultra as fast as these people (and I’ll almost surely never run anything in the Canary Islands) but it is a fun event to follow from afar.  Here’s a highlight video from last year where Luis Alberto Hernando, Kilian Jornet, and Sage Canaday duked it out for the men and Anna Frost, Maite Maiora, and Uxue Fraile  battled it out for the women’s podium.
