theBearJewThat is such a small margin to beat the record by. That's crazy.
theabortionatorI know. ALmost would be more stoked beating it by so little because he came so damn close to doing all of that and not making it. Has to feel awesome to have felt it slipping away at the end, then pulled out every last bit of strength and endurance and made it happen.
theBearJewHow much smaller of a margin would you have wanted? The 3 hrs is only 0.5% of his time spent on the trail.
Caucasian_AsianI wish I had a job that would let me go for a walk for a month and a half and still pay my mortgage.
Huck_NorrisThat IS his job. In the world of ultra running it's tough to get people outside the sport to give a fuck, and he just blew out into the mainstream spotlight which will pay out big for him no doubt.
SVmikeInto Mainstream? My guess this will be on the nightly news then we will all forget about it. Ask around in a year or two no one will remember. Not to take away from what they are doing as athletes, but "mainstream" is pushing it.
