If you’re in need of a bit of inspiration, then sit back, make a coffee and watch this awesome film by Brendon Leonard in conjunction with REI on his experience of running his first 100 miles.
It’s a distance that’s often spoken about as the ‘new marathon’ and is guaranteed, no matter how fit you are, to test you at some point. I’ve run three hundred milers and every single time, I’ve entered a dark place that made me want to quit. It’s only then, by pure will power, that you continue, ultimately reaching the finish line.
I love this film for the simple fact that it shows the true friendship of Brendon Leonard and Jason Syme, through their 6 months of training, right through to the finish line of the Run Rabbit Run 100 itself. It makes me want to run another 100 miler!
