Strava/Mountain Running Project

I'm interested in exercise physiology insofar as it relates to evolutionary questions. But, I'm also keen on the science of mountain running specifically, as a hobby of sorts. In 2017 I published a side project with Dr. Barry Braun of Colorado State University using the social media service Strava to investigate the physiology of mountain running (full text here ).
Here is a short list of papers dealing with the science of mountain running. Many of these are cited in my paper linked above.
