Easy paced 10K. My body felt really good. It was one of those runs where I just set out with my pack. I was going to stop at 5 miles but at that point what’s another mile lol
I think I’m dropping some money on a Marathon today. I had swore them off, but, it’s pulling at me again. I also think I need to lock in on some training for awhile. Signing up for one always does that. I swear, if I ever break 4 hours, I’m done forever!
This ultra is currently underway so here is a bit of history on it. Last I saw there are 5 runners still going right now
Thanks for posting! I watched a documentary on this race (while running on the treadmill at the gym ) a few years ago. I had forgotten all about it. I need to check out the results.
I just did. 3 finishers this year when there haven’t been any in 6 years!! First 2 finished in 58 hours and some change and the third finished with only 7 minutes to spare. I can’t believe they ran/hiked for 60 hours straight!!
Wow, the last finisher made it by only 6 1/2 minutes!
I know!! I watched some video and saw some pictures and the guys look absolutely exhausted! I’ve been debating on doing a marathon but I’m not sure I could ever run for 60 hours in that type of terrain. Mad respect to them!
I’ve done 15 marathons and it’s still a strong possibility I break down the last few miles and have to limp in. And I prepare heavily! I cannot fathom some of these ultras. I watched a documentary on one through the Himalayas or somewhere like that. It was mind boggling. I’ll have to find that one.
Yes please. I’d love to watch it. I started listening to a podcast on ultra history on Spotify and it’s pretty interesting
“Ultra High”. Haha, i just watched the trailer. Its been a good 5 years since i watched it. They start halucinating and get hyoothermia and all sorts of stuff, lol, its great!
Great Topic! I am a runner as well!
I start Running on regular base 5 months ago, to help me with staying sober and to quit smoking.
I Iove to Run in the early mornings, when the streets and parks are empty and you can hear the birds singing.
Altough I still smoke 4-5 cigarets a day I will keep trying! I Run half marathon distances now
Yesterday I did a 60min Tempo run.
Awesome! Yeah, I used to have pre and post run smokes too, lol.
I used to do that too. I’m so glad I don’t anymore!!
