Why Ultra Runners are a different breed:
“Ultra runners are a community. We push each other, stick together, and understand the commitments needed more than any other group of people. We’re probably the only athletes who cheer on our competition harder than ourselves, because we like to see people do what they once thought was impossible.”
This statement was made by Tim, who before my 50 miler I had never met but after two 10 mile loops I feel like were best friends!
