The beauty of ultrarunning is that there is nowhere else you’re able to carry a “why not” attitude further. At any given time, there are not very many people on this planet who could win the most competitive ultrarunning races. At the same time, I genuinely think that just about anyone, with the right attitude, can be a great ultrarunner if they really want to.
