The Why – Running 100 miles

This is a documentary about Billy Young running a 100 mile race, the famous Leadville 100 in Leadville, Colorado. Why do people run 100 miles, i can barely run 26 miles. But i guess it is a huge leap of faith and discovery for many runners, its discovering what their bodies can achieve when their mind sets to do something impossible. Its a challenge into the unknown, pushing your limits to achieving the impossible. Its a nice docu, Billy almost gave up 45 miles, but then that’s where the second wind takes over, the mind says i can do it, the body responds. We have the famous ultra marathoner Anton Krupicka speaking a few positive things during the documentary. Worth a watch for all ultra marathoners.
