If you believe, you can.
Just mere days into the 3100 mile race that takes place around one city block in a pleasant part of Jamaica, Queens, I headed out with Mark D to take in the sights. And to gape. And to be impressed.
Runners must commit to 60 miles per day to make the cut-off. I cannot even begin to imagine the stress on one's body, the mental dedication required. By watching the race, and running along the course with Mark D, I was so inspired. I don't think I could do such a race - I'm much more of a trail nerd (Sorry, Mark!), but the beautiful energy and the focus was impressive.
Even a Huffington Post article was impressed.
I recommend heading out to Jamaica and watching the race, if at all possible.
