Why the distance?
Anyone here who is a sprinter? Short distance runner?
I do the distance simply because I love it! And I am crap at running fast but I feel strong going long.
My ultimate dream is to do ultras. I think because it's mind work as well as physical work. Feels like there's more to it. But I'm far from it at the minute. Just concentrating on halves for next few months. Then back to full ones. Then we'll see.
What's your reason?
