I've got a fever...
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Trent (or anyone else), what's your take on the recent studies associating long-term low caloric intake with longer life?

I am female-- have a higher body fat % than you, which means automatically that I should eat less than you do. Further, I am 5'5'' and 1/2 and you are taller. I run pretty darn close to the same amount of miles you run. Yet we eat identically. On the one hand you are telling people to eat enough, on the other than you are a MAN eating as much as me! I am trying to lose .5 pounds of LARD a week. Are you trying to lose weight?
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

Training certainly helps, primarily by increasing the amount of fat you burn as a proportion of your energy source while running at high exertion. This takes many miles and years.

"The most common question from potential entrants is 'I do not know if I can do this' to which I usually answer, 'that's the whole point'.--Paul Charteris, Tarawera Ultramarathon RD.
