me too

When anyone tries to congratulate me on IM I brush them off because I know too many people who have already done it lots of times or done it double or triple or whatever, same with any ultras I have done, I never think they are far enough!

Interesting views , granted the style is not for all.

For me it emphasised that the cut off is very important in the definition of the achievement .

Also it underlines the need to respect the race , many , many good strong athletes have DNF'd forgetting this. 

The opening salvo about toeing up to the start line and the description of the real people were what grabbed me , the last paragraph I could have lived without , but I must accept that I am a western european and prone (though not as much as some on this forum) to cynicsm.

IM does require patience, dedication, self discipline, mental toughness and world-class time management as well as a degree of physical fitness by raceday.

Hmm ... maybe that's where I'm going wrong ...
