Have you ever ran 100 mile race?
I didn’t although I would like at some point. It’s one of the ultimate challenges that push us to the extreme and it’s not only physical limits that you’re reaching it’s limits of you mental and spiritual barriers.
I came across this excellent presentation during Le Web where ultra runner and entrepreneur Scott Dunlap talks about passion, the dark moments while running mile 80 and his attempt to use technology like GPS, hear rate monitors and others to see what happens during the 100 miles.
It’s fantastic insights into the world of ultra running but also reflection on what really drives us.
