I thought I would share something with you all. My friend Chris just ran his first Ultra Marathon this past weekend here in Wisconsin. He ran the Ice Age 50K which is a 50K trail run. Lucky for Chris, it was cold, windy, and rainy on Saturday for his first Ultra.
Here is a link to his post about the race. He writes about the need for experience when running a race like this but how much fun it can be running with like minded people.
