"... Perhaps the genius of ultra-running is itssupreme lack of utility. It makes no sense in a world of space ships andsupercomputers to run vast distances on foot. There is no money in it and nofame, frequently not even the approval of peers. But as poets, apostles andphilosophers have insisted from the dawn of time, there is more to life thanlogic and common sense. The ultra runners know this instinctively. And theyknow something else that is lost on the sedentary. They understand, perhapsbetter than anyone, that the doors to the spirit will swing open withphysical effort. In running such long and taxing distances they answer acall from the deepest realms of their being -- a call that asks who they are..." ~David Blaikie
