I am so glad that I went to go see this documentary movie on Dean Karnazes! I read his book Ultra-Marathon Man last year and thought that he was kind of nutty, but cool nutty. Now I am totally inspired and I have another hero. 50 Marathons in each of the 50 States in 50 days! And then the man goes out and starts running west two days after the finish of the NY Marathon and a full day of press appearances and runs an additional 1.300 miles over 90 days back to St. Charles, MO where he started his journey. My coach has been asking me for years when I was going to do an ultra-distance run. I had thought about doing the Goofy Challenge at Walt Disney World, but each year it fills up as fast as an Ironman race and I missed out on running it. Well, now I have a new goal. I think that I am going to register for the Sunmart 50K race in December. I will have just finished the San Antonio Rock n' Roll Marathon and coming off of a taper it would be a natural ramp up in miles again and then add another taper for the Houston Marathon.
My husband will think I am nuts. Well, he already thinks that, but now I will be a certified nut job. WHOO HOO!!!! I am pumped!!!
