<p>Awesome read, thanks for posting.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Our 100 mile times are about thes same, so I could relate to just about everything.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This line resonated for some reason, and actually made me LOL, "<em>Even routine tasks like avoiding pissing on yourself become arduous." </em></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Congrats on the finish</p>

<p style="color:rgb(24,24,24);">Hi all,</p>
<p style="color:rgb(24,24,24);"> </p>
<p style="color:rgb(24,24,24);">It seems like a perfect place to post but sorry for the irrelevant response as it has nothing to do with the above race. But it's perfect in the sense that it is linked with my questionnaire.</p>
<p style="color:rgb(24,24,24);">Sorry if it's totally irrelevant but I was just wondering if people could do me a huge favor and please fill in a quick 2 minute questionnaire on the motivations for participation in long distance running. It is for a university thesis so it would be a huge help for the research.</p>
<p style="color:rgb(24,24,24);"> </p>
<p style="color:rgb(24,24,24);">I'm a student at Sheffield Hallam University and very much into ultra races. I've been working alongside RacingThePlanet, an ultra-marathon company based in Hong Kong. I have been out to there events in Iceland and the Gobi Desert and would highly recommend their 4Deserts events series.<br style="margin:0px;padding:0px;"><br style="margin:0px;padding:0px;">
The survey is looking for ultra runners. The current literature linked with participation and the motivations provide analytical views and studies on the concept of class/cultural/social and economic aspects related to running. <br style="margin:0px;padding:0px;"><br style="margin:0px;padding:0px;"><br style="margin:0px;padding:0px;"><a href="http://kwiksurveys.com/app/rendersurvey.asp?sid=ryy0vpj2jkr65yz326463&refer=" target="_blank">http://kwiksurveys.com/app/rendersurvey.asp?sid=ryy0vpj2jkr65yz326463&refer=</a></p>

<p style="color:rgb(24,24,24);">(sorry for spam posting! But just thought from reading the thread members would be the perfect group to target as it's ultra runners)</p>
