Inspired to run an ultramarathon like @narendra? Here are tips to get you through it:

Wow, been away from Byron’s blog too long. I’ve done a couple of long runs in the past few months – a 100k in May and a 100 mile section of Tom’s Run in the first week of June. The best advice I can give is to not to focus on the finish line, but get into what you are doing. Breathe, feel the trail, most of all, stay alert and don’t zone out. Live in the moment, either visualize and put the pain in a mental box to be retrieved at the finish, or embrace how bad you feel and fight back, mentally. Either way, knowing your crew and volunteers are waiting at the next aid station is always a mental boost. At certain stops I preposition a treat for myself, or if schedules permit, a family member! A sip of cold coke is always nice. A hug and a “you can do it” from someone that cares is like a turbocharger.
