Not amazing....more like special.<br><br>
As in "Any idiot can run a marathon, but it takes a special idiot to run an ultramarathon" <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br>
Flounder seems especially "special" with his 30-40 mile days.<img alt="wink.gif" src=""><br><br>
Friday is my day off, so no running for me today. I will probably ride the bike on the trainer for 30-60 min though, to burn some calories and loosen up.
HAHAHA! Actually, I'm sort of jealous of Forrest... I wish I could do a run like that <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
Wow... impressive! A friend of mine is registered for this, Trans Europe running race (he's half nuts, he also ran a Double Hardrock (ie, two 100s back to back, finishing w/ the official race):<br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br><br>
pombili: Richard is right... I started small too. Back in 2000 or so, I would run on my lunch hour 2-3 days a week for 30 minutes. At first it was a run/walk combo (mostly walk)... maybe 2-2.5 miles total. I'd go out 15 min and turn around and come back. Over time the distances kept growing and I did a half marathon the following year.<br><br>
I moved to Boulder (from Indiana) in 2003 and discovered how much fun trail running is. Out here a lot of the trail runners are also ultrarunners, so after a few years of hanging out with these crazies, it just became a natural progression. (When you hang around with people who talk about "mellow 50 milers" you start to believe it). It probably also helps that I'm not quite wired right in the head, since I really love pain and love to get out on the trails and suffer... maybe I was dropped on my head as a baby <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
