A compelling read even for those who have no intention of trying to run 31 miles or more at once. -- Mark Taylor, Outdoors Editor, The Roanoke Times
From the Publisher
What it's really like to run an ultramarathon.
This book is a warm, fascinating, human introduction to the sport of ultramarathoning. You'll find out what it's like for the stars, like Ann Trason and Tim Twietmeyer and Ian Torrence -- and also what it's like for average runners who decide to run through The Wall. In ultramarathoning, ordinary people can discover the extraordinary within themselves.
