Four years ago, one state had 30% of its citizens above the obesity rate. This past year, that number has jumped to 12 states. What the F (as in fat) happened?  Read the report.

The Swan Crest 100, a largely self supported hundo in Montana is cancelled due to snow pack.  Anyone notice how the race site has an info tab for "bear info." Whoa.  The RD says that it'd be virtually impossible for anyone to come in under 36 hours.   How's that for a challenge? Also, read how they got around someone trying to cancel the run altogether.

Chris Horner has gnarly crash with 25k left in stage 7 of the TdF. Knocked unconscious, gets up, remounts his ride, and finishes the stage in last place, having zero idea of what happened or seemingly any recollection of the final 25k, still asking as he's loaded into the ambulance "did I finish?"  That guy is a trooper!

This guy is running from the North to the South Pole to raise money for the Red Cross. He's getting about 50 miles a day, but the worst is yet to come: Colombian jungles full of some really bad dudes who don't want him there.
