"That's ultra!"

For those of you who haven't seen it, here is Andrew Jones Wilkins around mile 76 at the Leadville 100 last weekend, where he placed 9th. He also placed 10th at the Hardrock 100 in July and 10th at the Western States 100 in June. That's what he's talking about when he quips, "It's been a long summer."

Warning: Pretty graphic, but don't let it stop you. The ending of the clip pretty much sums up ultra running.

I remember puking like that about, oh a year and a half ago - thanks to the encouragement of one Dr. Kate. Of course, I hadn't run anything like the miles Andy has, but boy howdy did it feel good!
