Let me start off by saying this is not an easy post to compose. I had fully hoped to be writing a post about successfully completing my Triple Crown of Ultra-Running. I never expected to be staring blankly at my computer dissecting and analyzing what went wrong? Spartathlon is the Ultimate Test of Ultra-running.
There is no other race like it in the world. The distance is staggering – 246 Km / 153 Miles. The environment is taxing with heat, humidity and rain. The time cut-offs are surreal – the first 50 miles must be completed in 9 1/2 hours and the entire race must be completed within 36 hours.
