Want to share the epic real life stories which struck a chord, sparked new adventures, or that you keep referring to as motivational fuel for long term goals?
I found one today.
I'm no distance runner, but am about halfway to my goal of being able to run 20K. Being 60, I found the story of Australia's Cliff Young to be one such story.
He started running recreationally at 57, then entered the 2001 Sidney to Melbourne 875K (544 mile) ultramarathon. He was used to running because he lived on a sheep farm and couldn't afford a 4 wheel drive, so he'd typically run for three days rounding up sheep and since the race was about 6 days, he figured he could do it.
He finished in five days and won the race! His ace card was being able to keep going & going & going at a modest pace with hardly any sleep.
