RAAM and Ultra-endurance Scholarly Articles
When I first got seriously interested in doing the RAW, and perhaps someday the RAAM, one of the first stops was the library. Unlike "normal" endurance sports, the body of literature of knowledge about pushing oneself through the challenge of a multi-day event is not nearly as extensive. However, there are some interesting publications.
