Ultras , as with other distances bring with it their own community . Sometimes people just find a niche , a group , a distance that they are happy with & want to remain at . Others want to push the boundaries and explore physical limits, challenges , terrains , places .
I think some people just have a natural curiosity that makes them want to go beyond each step they reach ..., I include myself in that bracket .
My start in running was never a planned one , it was a simple 5 mile charity run but somewhere in that run I found it was something I enjoyed along with the need to know just how far I could go.
Once I got to ultra distance and trail it was a whole new place I found myself being part of and it suited me . Along with the enjoyment of the trails I see and the people I've met the feeling of pushing your body beyond once what you never thought you'd see yourself do is a damn good feeling
