Here is a highlight from one of Dane’s recent blogs:
Why Runners Will Live Forever/Die Immediately in the Zombie Apocalypse
“Ever seen a runner after a marathon? We shuffle and moan like we are the living dead anyway. Until we get to a shower, we smell like them as well. Our stiff leggedness and natural aroma serve as perfect camouflage against the hordes of the undead.”
We encourage you to explore each of the blogs from our entrants and finalists who have some amazing stories to share of their ultra running adventures. An inspiration to us all.
A big thank you to everyone who took part in the contest. We enjoyed reading your blogs and we wish you a very successful ultra running year.
