Badwater Ultramarathon

26.2 is long enough for me. And I am almost certain I will never do anything longer. But I still found this inspiring.

"You run Badwater because there's something in you that wants to get out there, in the middle of nowhere, and think about something. It's a way of freeing yourself, getting back to what I really believe people are supposed to be doing instead of relying so much on a bunch of material crap that only makes us weaker. We are built to run, to cover great distance, for survival sake."
