i think i could do it in 3 months.

Courtney Dauwalter did it in 58 hours at the MOAB 200.

that is #ing insane

so there is a race called the MOAB 200 that is a 238 mile marathon through some crazy terrain in utah.

she beat the 2nd place person by 10 hours

i dont see how that is possible

There are logged accounts of Natives doing runs like that between forts in the French and English wars of early America that dwarf anything ever achieved in the olympics, or anything being done today in mainstream marathon running events.

One of the most fascinating books I’ve ever read is called Born to Run. So much interesting stuff about human anatomy, history, evolution and how we have related to the other species via hunting and using out brain. We are basically engineered by nature for running other animals down for food.

If you run everyday you burn all this muck off like it didn't happen.

Just dont try your usual olympian run while drinking beer. Dont Do it.

Can I cheat and run on the airplane while en route 238 miles away?

If not, it would take me forever. I'd never even finish.

She beat the second place woman by 20 hours-ish, too.

After seeing the documentary Icarus (about blood doping in sport...particularly running sports) I can't help but wonder when I see somebody blow everybody else out of the water like this and then claim to have done no real prep for it.

Cameron Haines is another runner in the race (and a frequent guest on Rogan's podcast) and that guy trained for months and months and months just to get to Moab.

yeah she smoked him. i think he came in 12th
he was running a marathon a day to train for it

that extreme endurance # is crazy

and icarus was awesome. enjoyed that one a lot though the russian dude punked out on his family. he went into witsec and ledt his wife and kid back in russia holding the bag. i guess the other way to look at it is if he went back he would probably be killed but i dont know man. its your wife and kid.

just sits kind of off with me

Twenty minutes of sleep in three months?

This cannot be natural. I am suspicious as to.. how.

Is that even possible?

Agreed, unreal!

Different people have different metabolisms. Some people really do need that kind of stuff for fuel. I was reading on a website that there is an athletic genetic testing service that is supposed to be able to read your metabolic markers to have an idea what sort of diet would optimize your performance.

Some people need to go the Tom Brady extreme route, but others need to eat junk, or at least the stuff in junk, in order to thrive.

Oh ok, that makes a lot more sense.

Still..

I once tried seeing how long I could stay up before crashing.

Lasted three days, with the help of mad amounts of caffeine.

I knew it was bed time when I started seeing things that weren't there.

While I appreciate the joke (
) I am wholly prepared to admit that I am not even remotely jealous of even contemplating running that far.

Yeah, that was my limit too and for the same reason. My excuse was a steroid injection though, not mad amounts of caffeine.
