Lots of folks are talking about this article on ultramarathons. Unfortunately, an ultramarathon is so long that your knees will implode if you attempt it. It’s best to skip the article and go straight to the comments. I’ve summed up one of the best comments in this picture.
“I laughed my way through this whole book. If you are a runner, or know a runner (or a cyclist or god forbid, a triathlete) then this is the perfect book for you. Forget those other running books written by ‘experts’, I can’t wait to start my training the Brolympus way!!”
Note as well that there are TWO exclamation marks. That’s twice as good as one!
*Technically this is the only review. And I copied the entire thing here. But if you’ve purchased the book and you are prepared to give it five stars and two or more exclamation marks, please add your review to the Amazon page for the book. Otherwise forget you ever saw this.
So many would-be runners suffer from the same problem. They would like to run a marathon, but no one tells them what to do. Fortunately, in just one week, they will no longer have that excuse. BROLYMPUS’ GUIDE TO RUNNING MARATHONS goes on sale November 11!
There’s been a lot of negativity recently about allegedly self-centered marathoners sharing their accomplishments with family and friends. Actually they are performing a valuable service!
Agh! The chafing!
On Sunday, after driving his race car 600 miles, Landon Cassill did something even more dangerous: He ran a marathon! This was a fairly long marathon, too — over 14 miles! He ran all the way from the Charlotte Motor Speedway to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, perhaps because he didn’t want to deal with post-race traffic.
