Training for an Ultra-Marathon

If you’re unsure what an ultra-marathon is, it’s any race longer than a marathon (26.2 miles).  Most common distances are 50K, 50 Miles, 100K, and 100 Miles.

Do you have what it takes?  I’m here to tell you that you’re capable of more than you think.   I’m going to share information and my experiences with what it’s like to train for an ultra.  My objective is to hopefully scratch a bit more than the surface and give you some good tips and insight into training and preparation.

I’ve been running ultras since 2014 and I refuse to do anything else as this has been a very rewarding and life changing experience.  Training and competing in ultras becomes more about the journey and experiences along the way.  It’s an opportunity to explore what your body and mind is capable of.  It takes a lot of hard work and commitment, and usually the end result is highly rewarding.  It doesn’t always go as planned, but the more you prepare up front the higher chances of success you will encounter.
