This is what was flowing through my head back in 2015 after watching a video online about an average guy completing one of the toughest 100-mile races in the US.
In 2015 I was already what I thought a good runner. After starting back in 2010, I had already successfully run a half marathon and was searching for my next challenge. The obvious choice was the marathon, but I felt that I wanted to do something different. I enjoyed running off-road rather than the pavement, heading out to somewhere and exploring places is way more fun than nearly getting run over!
After getting addicted to long-distance runs, it was time to test out my running legs and enter my first Ultra Marathon. It was 53 miles and I completed it in 12hrs 37mins, since then I have improved year on year shaving hours off my time and even gone further. My longest race to date is 62 miles (100km) and in the world of Ultra Running the next step up is the big one! 100 miles… So why not?…
