Yesterday, I went to a bookshop and asked the sales person if they had books on ultra trail running? He gave me a funny, weird look and responded…..”What is ultra trail running?” So, I briefly explained what is ultra trail running and ultra marathons are. He replied by saying- “Why-lah would anyone want to run a race longer than a standard marathon?” Honestly, I could not give him an answer because I didn’t know!
Hmmm…….So, It got me thinking, why does someone want to put their body through the agony of an ultra trail marathon?
Passion….???? Glory…….???? Insanity…….??????
Okay dokie, right away I am going to rule out insanity and go with Passion and Glory!
Runners fall in love with the idea of challenging themselves.I feel with the right and proper training ANYONE can run an ultra trail marathon!
