Quote Of The Day
“By Sunday evening, after 36 hours and 150 miles, the field was down to 14. By that point, Wardian was running in the dark, and his kids were nearing bedtime. Overnight, the runners kept dropping, and at one point, Wardian thought he would be joining them. Around 3 a.m., he briefly stopped running and walked over to his wife, Jennifer. ‘I was crumbling in the middle of the night,’ he later explained. ‘She asked if I was all right. I said, “No, I just don’t want to be doing this anymore.” She said that’s not a good enough excuse.'”
– Excerpt from a Washington Post article by Rick Maese about the “pep talk” Michael Wardian got from his wife when he was thinking about stopping 36 hours into the Quarantine Backyard Ultra.
