Running Insanity?

I just read - Ultramarathon Man: Confessions Of An All-Night Runner - and did so in marathon-like fashion. It only took me two sittings to dash through all 279 pages.

The book is about some Californian whack-job who runs marathons on a daily basis. In fact he's actually run over 200 miles straight without stopping!

Do check out this one even if you, like me, don't even like DRIVING 26.2 miles; your library should have it.

I found it not only eye-opening, but very inspirational as well. It reminded me of that suicidal mountain climber I read about not long ago.

Obviously this guy is no 125 featherweight either. He's a chiseled gladiator and bears a definite resemblance to...

The guy's freakin' resting heart rate is in the 30s!
