Profile: I am in San Diego, but if you are fascinated by the idea of running really really long distance, it doesn't matter where you are from, please join! There definitely aren't as many of us as marathoners. :) Hopefully hints on training, encouragement for upcoming ultras, and stories about ultras previously run can all be found here! If you love to run, doesn't matter if you are fast or slow, this may be for you.

30's, married, 2 kids, run a business. I am really starting to get in shape and it took me a long time to get back.

I was introduced to exercise a few of years ago. It took me a long time to actually enjoy working out. What I truly like about exercising is that I have complete control over what I do during a workout. I know this may sound weird, but at this point in my life, exercise might very well be the most personal thing I have. It's something that I do completely for me. I enjoy the feeling that I can have control over how my body looks and feels. [Sidenote: I am a Christian {I PROMISE, I am not going to start preaching! :)} and I believe that God is control, but I LOVE the feeling that no person has control over my body but me.] Hopefully, the preceding made sense to somebody else out there besides me and I hope I have not freaked anyone out :).

I am 28, and love to run long distance. I ran one marathon, on Dec 10 in Las Vegas and have plans to run many more. As far as weight loss goes, I could lose about five pounds.

I own a small restaurant with my husband and live in the Sacramento area. I have run 8 marathons but have a spinal disorder that has affected the way I run for about 3 years now. I can still do long distance only I have to take walk breaks the first 2-3 miles due to the condition. then I seem to warm up and can go the distance but a lot slower than I used to. Oh, well, I am just happy to be out there running. I mostly run trail races and try to stay off the roads for the most part but would love to run a marathon again or ultra.
