      Queen of 3rd Place

        That last sentence is the real punchline.

        2013 Valley Runner of the Year Series: Feb 16 5K (4 points out of 10) ... Mar 2 10K (20/30)... Mar 16 4Mi (21/30) ... Apr 6 10K (DNS) ... Apr 21 2Mi (5/10) ... May 11 5Mi (21/30)... Jun 8 1Mi (13/20) ... Jun 16 6Mi (22/30) ... Sep 28 10K (14/20) ... Oct 5 5K (7/10) ...Oct 12 5Mi (16/20) ... Oct 20 5K (0/10) = 3rd Place, Women's Senior Division

            Why not? It requires much less painful exertion than running. It's almost like resting. What could go wrong.

            It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

              That last sentence is the real punchline.

               

              "Correspondents say it is unclear whether there is an official world record for the longest time buried alive."  And unburied alive, preferably not brain-dead.

              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                At how many hours do you officially become a zombie?

                  Why not? It requires much less painful exertion than running. It's almost like resting. What could go wrong.

                   

                  What could go wrong? Besides screaming, wetting myself, and going out of my mind and becoming McMurphy at the end of Cuckoo's Nest, I'd have no fingers left from trying to dig myself back out. Shocked


                  I'm back!

                    I'd have no fingers left from trying to dig myself back out. Shocked

                     

                    No, the trick is to punch your way out, like The Bride in Kill Bill. Oh, wait... turns out that won't work.

                        How about a record better suited for this crowd?  The world's 7 day treadmill record (for men and women) was broken in December by a woman.  If you want to break this record, you have to top 517 miles.

                          I didn't think there was anything that made being buried alive seem attractive but 517 miles on a treadmill persuaded me otherwiseCry

                                I have not wrapped my mind around 48 hour races yet ...

                                 

                                I run 24 hour races mentally like I run marathons - Time nutrition, pacing etc to go for broke and just to get to 24 hours.  I tend to over salt, over drink fluid etc - To do a 48 hour I will have to change some of my tactics.  My mental toughness may not make 48 hours either.  After listening to that many hours of Metalica I might flip out and insist I am James Hetfield.
