‘The Rise of the Ultra Runners’ by Adharanand Finn

This was a good book. I really enjoyed it.

Finn, a bit of a runner, attempts to become an ultra runner. Full of great stories as it follows his progress culminating in his at attempt at the UTMB.

Great book that gives an insight into what can be found at the boundaries of human endeavour.

It’s not exactly enjoyable, but in the heart of the crisis, everything is so real, you become so aware of your vulnerability, and of your strength, and ultimately, there on the edge of survival, you become fully aware of your existence. And it is there, deep in the pain cave, as they told me all along, that the fun really begins.
