“Why run ultras? Why not? Ultrarunning is an opportunity to put aside my responsible, hair-sprayed life for 24 hours to run and play in the woods. We drink sugary drinks, shine flashlights in the night, splash through water, and eat quartered peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. All along the way we get unsolicited compliment from family, friends, and strangers about how good we look and how well we’re doing. Why would I NOT run ultras???” – Lisa Bliss, shown above at the start line of the race with Badwater Medical Team
