I like this. Big events (I think I mean big to the individual; 5K fun runs can be big) are a lot about the mental game.

I think that's what appeals to me with ultra marathons. They take the best of the best and tear them down to the level of the rest of us. In the end, we're all human and have similar problems on a scale unique to the individual.

Yes! This youtube channel I watch a lot released this video last week:

It shows this guy who's in OK shape run a whole marathon without any training. It's really hard, but with the proper mental outlook, it's possible!

I should probably write something about my Marathon experience, that was a fun watch.

I’d love to read that! I’ve gone down the Barkley Marsthon rabbit hole pretty deep this week, would love to hear more general marathon stories.
