Via Farra - an ultrarunner on DailyMile:


Video of the Badwater Ultramarathon participants crossing the finish line.
These people are inspiring and incredible.

I ran 7 miles on the treadmill yesterday. i was shooting for 10 but had some GI issues after 7 hours of meetings in very uncomfortable chairs. I couldn't work the kinks out of my back well enough.

Work stress and lack of running progress are leaving me totally drained. I fell asleep at 8 last night.

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted
Current Music: Chicago Public Radio - #412: Million Dollar Idea

I know a guy (kinda know, I know his fiancee) who did Badwater. Pretty cool.

I should go out today. I skipped yesterday because I was too busy and didn't go this past weekend.

I just have no interest in running outside these days. I thought I was supposed to be more active during the summer, not less.

When is your race anyways?

Interesting. There's a good chance I'll be in town that weekend.

Cool. Right now I'm on my own as Fox is out of town. I could use somebody to drag my sweaty ass back home if I'm too dead to go to the after-race party.

The after race party has (first) free beer for racers. You could totally sign up and run with me still. :)

Vanessa Mann is getting married that afternoon in Milwaukee and I guess she and Em are friends as we're going to the wedding. I don't know specific plans beyond that. *shrug*

At the very least I can toast to your success or be on hand to identify your body at the morgue.

What's your furthest distance so far?

12.5 miles in rather hot weather but flat ground. I was kind of slow but finished pretty strong.
