Finish lines always look really, really cool. It doesn’t matter how far the race is, how fast you went, or how hard the terrain. Finish lines are all about accomplishment, and pride, and satisfaction.  What’s the real reason to line up on a starting line of an ultra-marathon? So that six hours later you can cross a finish line.

During the race, I had a lot of time to think. Too think about life, what we’ve been through, what we still may have to go through, and how to keep everything in the right priority. Maybe just to try and concentrate on the present, and on adventures, sometimes taken with friends in the sunshine, and sometimes when you have to be on your own for awhile, in the dark.

There are times when you really shouldn’t try and be so smart. You have to go with your gut, even if that means going down a road that seems impossibly long and impossibly difficult. You just have to have faith that things will get better at some point, and until then, just do the best you can. Sometimes you have to break down life into small sections, even individual steps.

All of us run “ultra-marathons.” They just don’t give you t-shirts and medallions in the one called “life.”

Next week I hope to finally announce the next big adventure.

(P.S. I actually caught a lot of guys and finished in 10th.)

    Such a profound line: All of us run “ultra-marathons.” They just don’t give you t-shirts and medallions in the one called “life.”

  3. Ruti Sherman says:

    You don’t have to always be alone in the dark, you can also be with your friends in the dark and your friends with you! Though I still wish that we may be blessed with many fun adventures together in the sun!!!!!!

    WOW!

    A BIG ‘SHKOIACH’! You know you really are insane. My knees hurt just from reading your story.

  6. Bill Landau says:

    Romi hit it on the head. That is a really profound thought. Also yasher koach, you insane runner person, you!

    W.O.W.

    Nice. I ran the 17k (and won it) and was in awe of the 51Kers. Could not imagine running the loop again, never mind 2 more times! You can give me some tips when I run Comrades next year 🙂

  9. You are officially insane. And I mean that in the best possible way.

    You do understand that if you came in tenth, starting an hour late and without the right preparations, etc., and you don’t blow everyone away the next time — not only win but win by a lot — then it will be an embarrassment? Ah, the joys of living up to your (crazy) reputation.
