RE: 13 year old girl runs 50 mile Ultramarathon!!!!
I have a 16 yr old daughter that wants to run a 50k trail race with me next year when she's 17. I don't see the problem. Not like we're going to actually 'race'. It's more of an all day hike/run.
Mooooooooochelle says to play 60, so why is playing for 6-7 hours so bad? Should kids only be allowed to play outside for an hour a day? Bring them inside after an hour & make them play video games so they don't 'burn out' playing tag or hoops in the neighborhood?
When I was a kid, we'd take off on our bikes in the AM & be gone all day. Or we'd hike off in the woods & not be back til dinner time. I don't see that running a 50 miler is that different, unless there's competitive pressure to run it at a certain pace.
