Why would you want to run 100 miles?
That's insane. I don't want to drive 100 miles.
How long will that take you?
Do you stop and sleep?
Where do you go to the bathroom?
The list goes on. If you're an ultra runner, you have no doubt been inundated with the same litany of questions. And at some point, you just get tired of trying to explain it all.
I get it. It's not normal. People don't just go out and run 100 miles.
But the truth is, I don't have a compelling answer as to why I want to run 100 miles. Because I can? Is that good enough?
So my dear ultra running friends....why do you want to run 100 miles? Maybe I'll use one of your lines when I fell compelled to explain myself.
