Do you mean a 50K or a 50 mile race. To me, there is not much difference between 31.06 miles and 26.2 (marathon distance). Am I missing something?

So, have you done both? There is a significant difference between trail 50k and road marathon.

All that I saw was 50K race, nothing indicated a 50K trail race. If a question is asked, appropriate detail should be included.

The vast majority of 50k's in the US at least are trail races.

OK, Andrew. Truly elite trollage:

CJ Kim is using the koans of Zen Master GG to undermine Crossfit by having Crossfitters criticize it while CJ Kim defends it. And he can't be banned!

Unless that's you.

That is elite, indeed! CJ Kimís persona is fully believable yet obviously so far out there that even the zealots recognize the silliness of CF Inc. and their lies.

I'm still waiting to see videos of Greg Glassman do anything at any level.

I know that there aren't runs anywhere near 30 miles at one time, but it seems like it would be much better than "follow mainsite programming and do 3 CFE workouts per week."
I'm not sure I understand why there are two CFE programs that look so different.

Also, does anyone know who is in charge of the CF Journal? I've seen articles advocating more strength work, less CF, and even isolation exercises. Obviously a strength bias, less and less CF, and smarter conditioning (aka not random or using dumb movements) is the natural progression for people who actually desire to be better, but how does HQ let this stuff into the journal? It seems like they would censor that sort of thing. I'm curious as to why that doesn't happen.

CJ is laying the smack down. I've never seen someone take on The Movement from that angle before. Defend it so the faithful can trash it.

I kinda feel bad for a couple of those people in those threads. Just getting manhandled into slamming CF without realizing it.
