This article is about the World's longest race - 3,100 miles.
That is the distance from NY to LA. But the people who run this race decide to circle a block in Queens - for 2 months!!!!! The run all day, only stopping to sleep from Midnight to 6AM - where they do it all over again. Many run 2 marathons to 60 miles a day.
So for all of you who think my goals of 25 half-marathons in the next 7 years (will have 9 down by end of 2006 BTW) is crazy - please remember that the distance I have ran in my lifetime - yes my LIFETIME - is just over 1/3 of that race.
I am not crazy! Well - for the running reasons at least. **smile**
So run on - you crazy diamond.
