Crazy Things Ultrarunners Say.

So yes, we all know about the quirky things runners do. But if you have been in the running community for a while, you KNOW this other group of runners. The ones who run the crazy distances, the trail races, the races in the mountains etc. This is a very small but interesting group of people! To say the least. Ha. Here are some things, in random order, that ultra runners say.

I’m just running a marathon to train for this ultra. Because running 26.2 miles is clearly not enough.

This weekend I will run back to back 25 milers, no big deal.

Just hydrating for this weekend’s trail race. Let’s go get some craft beers. I need the carbs.

50k? Oh that is just a few miles more than a marathon. It’s a baby ultra.

Let’s sign up for a 100 mile race just for fun.

It’s okay to use the bathroom in the woods. Everybody does that.

Is that a deer? Snake? Coyote? Oh just keep going…they won’t bother you if you don’t bother them.

What are some other crazy things ultrarunners/runners say?
