The Daily Feed: Sites We're Surfing on 4/21

I really should be titling this entry Boston Sites to Surf as I have officially become obsessed with all of the post-marathon hubbub. I thought it'd be over after yesterday, but alas I'm still psyched to be reading about the race, checking out the photos and finding interviews.

So rather than regurgitate information here and put a Runner's World story into my own words and the like, I figured I'd just send you directly to the source to check out the info for yourself. Happy reading!
  • Universal Sports not only televised the race, but they also scored an interview with Kara Goucher available at their website universalsports.com. Check out her post-race thoughts, what's next on the schedule and overcoming her fear of the marathon distance. They also have a recap story about Marathon Monday and the video section is packed with segments of the race to watch.
  • Yes, we're Goucher obsessed, but with good reason. Check out this read about her run at the Boston Herald.
  • Paul at runboston09.com was lucky enough to be at the Finisher's Celebration at Niketown Boston yesterday. He tweeted and blogged about much of the event, which you can read about here and here.
  • Runner's World offers just about any piece of information an internet-roving runner could ask for. Pictures from the race, interviews with Kara Goucher and Ryan Hall, Bill Rodgers' return-to-the-race run, race recaps and more. Find it all at bostonmarathon.runnersworld.com.
  • Two more fun reads: check out the sprint to the finish by Goucher and Hall at the Back Porch and Flotrack is stocked with interviews, videos and stories related to Boston.
And in other news...
  • If yesterday's race got you motivated to run a marathon, read some of these tips from TeamOCRun.com to help you reach the finish line of your first 26.2.
  • I know I should quit it on the skiing, but I was too excited over this deal: a pass to Copper Mountain and Winter Park, plus six days at Steamboat and free Friday afternoons, as part of the Rocky Mountain Super Pass. The price tag? $399 until Friday, April 24, and you only have to pay $49 with the rest due in September. Check out the deal at skicolorado.com.
  • Same goes for the Epic Pass available for Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Breckenridge, Heavenly and Arapahoe Basin. Good news is you only have to pay $49 now for the $599 pass that grants you unlimited access to these resorts in the 2009-10 season, and the rest of the payment is due in September.
I'm sure there's more, but my eyes are tired from reading at the moment. Well that and staring at the computer screen after online video watching--I definitely would have taken a day bundled up watching the race outside over at my computer. Photo grabbed from Rob Larsen at flickr. Posted by Kate
