Ultra runners

While I was stuffing myself with delicious Indian and Sushi cuisine this weekend, 241 people finished the Western States 100. I don’t claim to be a marathoner of any kind (half to ultra) but I do enjoy running. And I like seeing how far I can push myself, but I can only imagine the kind of mental and physical fortitude this people have.

If you poke around their Web site you can find  some of the elevation gains the runners had to deal with and the time in which people finished. Those facts blow my mind and are a testament to the beauty of human physiology and psychology.
