Reviews of the 2009 Boulder Backroads Marathon (also on previous page). I ran this race and blew up at mile 20 and had to walk the last 10K; it was hot (90F) and I didn't pace myself or hydrate accordingly.
Andrew Skurka's guy line tensioning system. I always used a quick-release hitch instead of a bowline and a taut line hitch instead of a trucker's hitch -- but the trucker's hitch looks like it would get and keep everything more taut.
A series of articles on better merges with dedicated patch branches rather than cherry-picking from feature branches, with good graphs. I use cherry-pick often on my one-man projects and have confused myself with merge-base in the past, so this is probably a good reference for me to remember.
