Reading this guy’s exploits makes me feel shattered

I received a press e-mail today about the exploits of Charlie Engle and Marshall Ulrich, who have just completed running from San Francisco to New York.

Marshall is a sprightly 57 year old and has already completed:
- 116 ultra marathons averaging over 100 miles each.
- 12 expedition length adventure races, including all nine Eco Challenges
- Reaching the summit of each of the world’s highest mountains

Wow. Next time some idiot starts talking about the 50+ as if they are one step away from the grave tell them to read about the exploits of this guy. What an amazing thing to do. Dick Stroud
