Any marathoners here? Anyone ever run the Leadville 100 Ultramarathon (100 miles at 10,000 feet) or another ultramarathon?

I'm pretty proud because I made it six miles on my jog today, which is the most I've done in about ten years. I braved two enraged golden retrievers along the route, but it was otherwise uneventful.

I ran half marathons as a kid. I ran/walked the LA marathon at 11.

Now I walk to the backyard a few times a day.

I did 6 miles back when I first got my treadmil. Never ran a marathon though. I don't evn like running in groups, I prefer to run alone.

Ran a 18 mile "fun run" while in the military.

However, I don't remember it being much fun.

Is it stopping to stop at a water fountain to get a drink?

My nose runs and my feet smell. I must be built upside down.

I probably run a lot during any given soccer match, I don't know what distance exactly though.

I've run 2 marathons. The Rock n Roll marathon in San Diego and the San Diego marathon in Carlsbad.

Done several half marathons and boatload of 10k and 5k.

That said my longest training run was 28.5 miles. Did it 3 weeks before the RnR marathon. Had to be sure I could make it all the way again.

I made it six miles in one setting, manymanymany moons ago. The wife just ran the Rock n Roll Marathon in San Diego last month, but I am pretty sure she didn't make it 26.2 miles without stopping.

Not as long as you started running again before the last of the water cleared your esophagus.

Used to have to run 3.3 miles every odd day in high school basketball.

Now I doubt if I can put in a 8 minute mile.
Best mile time ever: 6.32 in highschool.
And I was the big-boned/chunky/husky kid.

I've run many many miles on many occasions.

I always do it in my car though. Believe me, it's a LOT easier.

I ran a handful of thirty mile training runs.

During one particularly demented summer I ran one thirty mile and two twenty mile runs in a one week time period. I probably did that three or four times that summer.

Hardest run I ever completed was the Pikes Peak Marathon--up and down the dirt (and eventually rock switchback) trail. It's a little over a standard marathon and goes above 14,000 feet elevation at the top.

6 hours and change. Sore and dehydrated too. Beer afterwards helped the soreness, at least.

At my last match I wore a pedometer and at the end of the first half I ran a little over 3 miles. It doesn't seem like you're running that far when your playing but it's actually a good workout...

Last year I did the Vineman Triathlon "Barb's Race".... it's a women's only race where we swam 1.2 miles, biked 56 and ran 13.1. It was half the distance of the man's race but it sure felt good to finish and was a hell of a work out. I wish I could do it this year again but I'm definetely not prepared!!! hahah

The longest I ever ran was 10 miles. I had been in training to run a half marathon, but ended up being to late to enter. I was doing most of this running to try to impress this girl I liked, who was also my running partner. I ended up not getting the girl, and since then I haven't ran over four miles. I never did get how people enjoy running. I enjoy running while playing sports, but just running is pretty boring.

Do you ever try headphones? I just get in a state of mind where I'm forgetting I'm even running just listening to the music! But... I also believe running is therapeutical. When I have a headache .. I jog... cramps... I run... boyfriend cheats on me... I sprint!!! hahaha

When I was Junior in high school and had to jump over 3 fences and a nasty rot to escape the police.

I have no idea the actual distance but I'd guess about 2 city blocks....

I ran a mile in HS, but I hate running just to run, or for time even. Don't mind running if a football, basketball, volleyball, tennis ball, racquet ball, frisbee, etc. is in the area, but running just to run, BLEEP THAT!

I ran cross country in high school, ran probably 50 miles a week during the season. Longest ever at one time was a half marathon.

I still run every now and then to keep in shape, but my knees and ankles are so jacked up from all that mileage in my youth that I can't do much more than about 4 miles now.

Mostly uphill too, I imagine.

I jogged over 10 miles when I was younger. I try to jog 3 miles daily but I find it a lot easier to fall off the wagon and not jog for a few weeks. I want to jog everyday but just don't have the will power.

I am pretty sure that I went over a half mile more than once.

When I was in high school I was on the cross country team. We had one workout each season where we would start out running half miles and work our way down very slowly to 100 yard sprints. By the time we were done we had run 15 miles or so. That wasn't even our hardest workout. We had one that we would take on a sledding hill called Woodpecker Hill that was about a 55 degree climb. We would take that hill 15 times. The ass muscles were tight for three days after that.

I did a rim to rim hike/jog in Grand Canyon last year (25 miles), and one of our training runs was about 13 miles.
