Huge congrats by Scrymarch (4.00 / 1) #1 Mon Oct 07, 2019 at 12:30:43 AM EST
Any ultra time inside the cutoff is a great time.

I didn't want to say earlier since you had already signed up, but going straight to an ultra from 10k racing with only two months leadup is kind of insane : )

Your writeup reminds me of the Murakami bit on his ultra in WITAWITR.

I plan to read that Murakami book sometime.

I did know it was a bit insane but wanted to stay positive...

It is unlikely that the good of a snail should reside in its shell: so is it likely that the good of a man should?

work on getting faster over shorter distances by lm (4.00 / 1) #5 Mon Oct 07, 2019 at 07:55:39 PM EST
Yeah, I'm probably not going to do another marathon until I can do a half at 8 minute miles.

Everything over 4 hours is just super painful. So I figure if I can get it done in 4 hours ....

Good job on getting it done. That's a lot of effort.

Seriously, a lot of effort.

That's a long way to run. Mad props.

If you're in search of a more mad challenge, a guy from the club did the Arch to Arc a few years back. It's quite simple: start at Marble Arch, run to Dover, swim to Calais, cycle to the Arc de Triomphe. Yes, you do have to be really batshit insane to do that.
