You know your an Ultrarunner if….

After 15 years of Ultra running my wife has seen it all, her friends at work have heard it all, so they handed her a hard copy of 110 savoy statements that “You know your and ulltrarunner if”.. I laughed my a** off knowing this applies to all my fellow trail runners. So each week I though I would share a few of these statements written by various authors.
  • You spend more time in the drug section than the food section of the local market.
  • You wonder why they don’t make all running socks a dusty brown color.
  • You have more dirt on your shoes then your garden.
  • You think that flagel and ibutrophin belong on the breakfast table.
  • You get more phone calls at 5AM than at 5PM.
  • You don’t recognize your friend with their clothes on.
  • You have more buckles then belts.
  • You postpone your wedding because it will interfere with your training.
  • You keep mistaking your boss for Norm Klein.
  • 6AM is sleeping in.
  • Your feet look better with out toenails.
  • Your ideal of a fun date is a 30-mile training run.
  • You’re tempted to look for a bush when there’s a long line for the public restroom.
  • You don’t think twice about eating food you’ve picked up off the floor.
  • You can expound on the virtues of eating salt.
  • You develop an unnatural fear of mountain lions.

Pinhoti 100 – 2009

Looks like the southern goats are ready to rumble through the Talladega National Forest for a point to point 100 miler.This is the second annual run for the race and who else but Speedgoat Meltzer is there ready set the standard. Last years win was over 20 hours, I’m sure that will change. Looking forward to watchingĀ  team mate Tim Barnes run his first 100, scrape on!

I lost track of how many 100’s Meltzer won so far this year, 5?

Sharpen those hooves!
