50 Miles Of Ultra Trail, Done!
It was tough… Four 13.33 loops, 53.32 miles total, 12 hours 21 mins. Good times! Instead of a belt buckle or a medal the race director got us hand crafted wooden canes which I thought was completely awesome. I have done a few Ironmans but now I can finally add the title of Ultra Trail Runner, which puts a big ol fat smile on my face.
Before the 53.32 mile race this past weekend my longest run ever was 27 miles. I truly believe mental toughness trumps fitness and athleticism. I’m not athletic… It really all comes down to the fact that I just don’t want to give up and I am stubborn as hell. It’s going to hurt, bad. You will go through dark places, just welcome it and find a way out.
Thanks for all the kind words and emails. Cheers, Dustin
