Hi all –
Thought I’d pass along a couple pieces I reported which appear on today. The first is about a Coastal Challenge 3 day run across remote jungle and beaches of Panama. The photo gallery is incredible (Tim Holmstrom, the organizer, is a photo journo) and the video that racer David Bassett shot in which he runs up on a Boa constrictor is stunning!

This second piece is about adventure racing in general. Two great voices in this piece — queens of adventure racing Robyn Benincasa and Rebecca Rusch.
Thanks to them!

I always appreciate feedback…please get in touch with any comments. And please pass these along. Send a message to CNN that these stories are interesting and worth doing.

Happy running —
Ashley Fantz
