Why Run 100 Miles: Doug’s Hellbender 100 Recap
When someone hears you’ve run a 100 mile ultramarathon, one of the first questions is always, “Why?” And for me, anyway, answering that question has never been easy. I have my go-to responses…
It makes me a better person.
I like to see what I’m capable of at my lowest.
The aid station food is good.
But if I’m being completely honest with myself, it’s probably none of those things.
In today’s episode, Matt and I try to tackle the “Why?” question, and why it might be better to leave that question unanswered. Plus, we do a full recap of my recent Hellbender 100 mile ultra, and it’s a good one.
