I just finished reading an article about Scott Jurek, an ultramarathoner who runs 100 miles races. ONE HUNDRED MILES!!! What's he thinking? Well, actually, he admits to doing more hallucinating during those runs than thinking. No surprise! *
What did I learn from this article about Scott Jurek? Well, first I learned a new word, 'ultramarathoner'. Then, I learned that there is more than one human who runs them. But, most importantly, I learned that his opinion of those who are not ultramarathoners is pretty cool.
When asked if he thought mere marathoners were wimps, he responded:
"It's totally cool to run a marathon. I still appreciate somebody who takes six or seven hours to complete one. Sometimes running around the block is a lot for somebody. So I definitely don't liik at a marathon as a drop in the bucket."
Thank you, Mr. Jurek. You have validated all of us who can't even run - but do WALK - around the block. Even the mere walkers of the world are doing their part. I concur!
