Wow. I’ve never read anything like this before. Thanks so much for taking the time to write it, it was very interesting to read. Good luck on the next one. Wow, I just skimmed through this report during my lunch break and I think I’m going to print this out and read it this evening (cuddled up in my favourite blanket with a hot beverage). Never underestimate the power of a guy born in April T-Shirt Absolutely impressive! I’m obsessed with running documentaries, especially ultra documentaries, and I feel like reading your post was exactly like watching one. A) Your post was thorough, and B) you write so well that I feel like I was there with you. That’s my ultra mantra to chant to myself at the low, dark points.

This was a very compelling read. Thanks for taking the time to type it out. I’m frankly in awe; this shit takes some serious physical and mental fortitude. You do seem to have a talent for it for sure.Never underestimate the power of a guy born in April T-Shirt I’ve done three 50-milers and each time I spent the last 20-25 miles alternately hobbling while sobbing and collapsing into piles of leaves/rocks/dirt to await my death. Reading your account somehow inspired me to rope my partner into a fully unplanned and unsupported 50k this weekend, which I will complete off the back of 5k training (no long runs over 12 miles all summer). Please update us with race reports for Quad Rock and Western!

I was at Endless Mile too (I was one of those annoying 6 hour people) and its funny because I remember seeing your donut socks and thinking they were awesome! Well done on your race and I really enjoyed your write up. Hours 18-24 are so relatable. I’ve been unprepared for cold weather hikes and trips. It’s funny looking at it now but nothing can break you quite like the “never warm again feeling”. Loved reading your write up. Never underestimate the power of a guy born in April T-Shirt Every time I read one of these reports my mind boggles at what people go through and achieve, but it also makes me never want to do one! I simply don’t think I have it in me to do anything over about a 50 miler. Great race and great report though, look forward to your next one.
