Friday Funny: Ultrarunning Humor


Ultrarunning - if you die, we split your gear
I saw this over at http://www.ultraprincess.com/

I thought it would be nice to celebrate the end of my first week as an ultrarunner (still can't believe it!), with a little ultrarunning humor. Following are some funnies related to ulrarunning (author noted where known, sorry if I shared something without proper acknowledgement).

"Any idiot can run a marathon. It takes a special kind of idiot to run an ultramarathon."

"Ultramarathon Basics: Left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot. Repeat as needed."

"If you start to feel good during an ultra, don't worry, you will get over it." - Gene Thibeault

"If you look up, you're going down!" - Eric Steele

"I decided to go for a little run." - Forrest Gump

  1. Yay! One week anniversary! Congrats!

    Someone posted that "special kind of idiot" thing on our club Facebook wall before the ultra last week. Love it!

  2. We were told in a race briefing the other day "if you come across an injured or unconscious runner...remember to take his food and water" Have a good weekend!

  3. Enjoyable little quips.
    I'd be still celebrating if I did a 50 miler. I'm still stuck on 26.2.
