This weekend NRC Handelsblad ran my story about the rise of ultra running. I felt fortunate to write it. In the process I got to speak with several running greats: Phoenix Marathon organizer and Badwater champ Pam Reed, Bryon Powell of the terrific blog IRunFar, the amazing runner/writer/photographer Rickey Gates, and the unstoppable Ultramarathonman Dean Karnazes. Thanks to these inspiring runners for sharing their ideas.
The story is Dutch only: NRC_20140510_1_059_article1
I hope to post an English version soon.
