I hope this is appropriate for this forum. I am not sure how extreme it is. It's just an anniversary.<br><br>
On September 29, 2002 I went to John Ball Park in Grand Rapids Michigan and ran out to the 1 mile mark. I turned around there and had to walk back to the start.<br><br>
5 years later and I am becoming an ultra-runner. It's been quite the journey. Many of you, my imaginary friends helped me in ways I can never pay back.<br><br>
Thanks for the inspiration, the motivation and the knowledge that you share with me.<br><br>
The journey continues ...

Thanks for sharing that! I love hearing things like that. I can't believe that you have only been running for 5 years and you have already done endurance runs. That is awesome.<br><br>
Mr. Orange Shorts rocks!!

good stuff, mr. shorts.<br><br>
I have been running 3 years now. This post was very encouraging to me.<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br>
Edited to add: I wish I'd taken note of the day when I ran for <i>5 full minutes</i> on the treadmill.

It's a nice way to measure our progress.<br><br>
Just make up a date and celebrate from there.

I first heard of an ultra hearing about a woman who ran a 100 miler. I thought that was foolish and possibly dangerous. I have since become quite foolish.
