Nothing.  You're just the man who walked 1000 miles to fall down at your door...

rocky_howard: Runners are funny. And by funny, I mean idiots.

"Hey, let's run to the point our bodies start consuming our own muscle mass, straining our joints to hell and making our bones brittler. Yay, health!"

Doing extensive physical activity does NOTHING to improve your health. It's just a pissing contest and stupid "willpower" demonstrations.

FTA: "The reason why the 200-mile runners weren't as fatigued as the 100-mile group may be due to pacing. The Tor des Geants runners averaged 3.4 miles per hour during their course, while the 100-mile runners took a faster 4.5 miles per hour pace."

I thought dropping below 4 MPH for too long bought you a ticket on The Long Walk.

The best way to run an ultramarathon is to cruise the route at 5 m.p.h. in the back of an air-conditioned limo, sipping martinis and occasionally getting out to walk or jog for a block or so, to stretch the legs and clear the head.
