Growing up my Dad would take me to any 5K he was running. I would jog along with him and somehow come home with hardware. It wasn’t that I was fast, it was the 80’s and 90’s and not many parents dragging their kids to 5K’s.

I ran cross country and track in high school, though not incredibly fast, and during my freshman year of college I ran my first marathon. I finished with a guy who told me that he had just finished his 14th marathon. I wondered if I would ever be able to run 14 marathons in my entire life. I completed 11 sanctioned marathons before graduating to ultramarathons, then I started running marathons, or longer, for training, even running a marathon a month for 2 years before deciding that was silly.

Ultramarathon? What is that?

Wikipedia says:  An ultramarathon is any sporting event involving running and walking longer than the traditional marathon length of 26.2 miles.

I say it’s a long way…but it’s fun, and I’ve met some of my best friends on the trails. I was even interviewed by Ultrarunner Podcast, check it out here.
