Ultra-ing

I’m a regular reader of Jill Homer’s blog, http://arcticglass.blogspot.com. Who isn’t, really? She mentioned that her close friend Geoff (who makes an appearance in her book) ran the Western States 100 and since I just finished Born To Run and am all stoked on running I thought I’d read up on it. The dude set a course record besting Scott Jurek’s fastest time! When asked about it, Geoff had this to say, 

“Somewhere around mile 70 or 75, it started to feel good. I finally got warmed up, I guess.”


Awesome. Some lessons in that statement for amateurs such as myself. I recommend the entire article: http://rosevillept.com/detail/153188.html
