Celebration of Health and the Triumph of Human Spirit

Speaking of running ultras, and how it is not understood by the world at large, I saved this Rich Limacher quote from the UltraList back in 1999:

Gawkers and media vultures watching all the worn-out bloody bodies must think we all do a death march for fifty or more miles. But they have no clue, do they? Why, in every single ultra I've ever done, the almost non-stop banter and good humor from start to finish makes the whole thing a celebration--not a war zone--which is exactly what it is: a celebration of health and the triumph of human spirit.
