|Subject: ||RE: Help.. I have an unnatural hate of ultra runners|
as others have noted, those who run long aren't necessarily slugs. i'm certainly no great shakes, and i've not raced longer than 70 miles, but i have managed to achieve PRs within the past year at 5K, 10K, and 50 mile distances; all have been faster than age-graded standards times (45-49F). for some ultrarunners, it's about striving to finish (that's true also for just-off-the-couch 5K'ers, but a topic for a different, rant-inspiring thread); for others, it's about training hard, racing smart, and being the best one can be at the thing that brings joy and challenge.
