02020.jpg (35188 bytes) "Perhaps the

genius

of ultra running

is its supreme

lack of utility.  

It makes  no  sense  in  a world of space ships and supercomputers to run vast distances on foot. There is no money in it and no fame, frequently not even the approval  of  peers.  But  as   poets,  apostles  and philosophers have insisted from the dawn of time, there is more to life than logic and common sense.  The  ultra runners know this instinctively. And they know something else  that  is  lost on the sedentary. They understand, perhaps better than anyone,  that the doors to the spirit will swing open with physical effort. In  running  such long  and   taxing  distances they answer a call from the deepest realms of their being -- a call that asks who they are."
                                                 -- David Blaikie, Ultramarathon Canada

"One way I define a challenge is something that does not have a guaranteed outcome. I know that on my worst day I can strap on a pair of shoes and run 26 miles. But here, no matter what kind of shape you're in, there's no guarantee you're going to finish. I can relate to that. I train for combat. Combat does not have a guaranteed outcome."    -- W. C. Maples, Major, US Marine Corps
