This episode attempts to take us along on a play by play of the MCM weekend, bringing stories, sights and sounds from various parts of a very inspiring event, and historic one in someways being the first running of the Ultra as part of MCM's series!  We attempt to capture the culture behind the event, and do a bit of ethnography work; following the people that have made Running Anthropologist's coverage of MCM possible, pulling everything together from their training and experience at MCM this year.  Hope you enjoy it, and share it with others!
