Yeah, that's just crazy. I was talking with a woman that has run many marathons and she said that she's had toenails fall off, nipples bleed etc. She got pretty graphic. I can't imagine the battering an 80 mile run must put on your body and your heart. No matter how well you train or how good of shape you're in. Doing something like that routinely can't be good. Imagine if every weekend you drove your car from Michigan to North Carolina? That wouldn't be very good for the car would it?

btw, you should start doing that every other weekend ;-)

Gross. I'll stick to ice skating.

The craziest thing, is he has no training, and he has won a number of them. He is just built to run I guess.

It's not fair. Apparently I was built to drink bourbon.

In Colorado, they have the Leadville 100. Which is not only a 100 mile run, but it's a 100 mile run at altitude. I mean... 100 miles? damn. but 100 miles at like 10,000 feet?

I'm with mk. 2 miles is plenty for me.

Literally at the head if a trail about to run, hubskiing from my phone. I'm thinking 30 minutes -not sure how far that will be but my runkeeper app will let me know.
