I mentioned in a FB post that I have friends that do stupid stuff!
Not the JackAss movie stupid stuff like a sparkler in the arse, but running trail ultras and doing Ironman events.
This weekend was the Woodstock race events and Ironman Wisconsin, so I was online tracking friends and checking for results.
So having read the accounts of some of them having to drop out of their 100 Mile race at different points due to different reasons or tracking the start of their marathon while I was starting my dinner was just bizzare.
I think the two days from work go fast enough just with normal crap, like mowing the grass and consuming BEvERages while watching football, these guys were doing some amazing shit!
One of the individuals that really stuck out was doing her first 100 miler and the time limit was 30 hours! Can you remember what you did your last 30 hours? Well she was having GI issues after 20+ miles but she persevered and completed the race(I use this word loosely) in 29:29. Now that 30 minutes may seem like a lot of time but not after 90+ miles....
To make matters worst for the 100 milers, it rained for most of the early morning hours, leaving a large portion of them cold and shivering.
So, I truly have some extraordinary friends that I am truly proud.
Oh what else did I do this weekend?
I got in my two runs with minimal knee pain and began looking at my long-sleeved running shirts.
Is it really Monday again?????
