    I respect that perspective, but regardless, a race is a race and this is a legal strategy.

     

    If the lead guy asks you to pass or back off, should you respect that?  A mile or two is one thing but if constant, I think most ppl would get annoyed. *Me especially*

      Difference between us and these guys, I'd think...need thicker skin than we have.

        There is an excellent interview with Joe Fejes on Talk Ultra.

            Yes - Good Read.  The was money for 1st person to hit 400 and 500 miles (Maybe earlier distance too), but having a strategy to hit those numbers 1st make a lot of sense.  Also, it does not appear that Joe emplyed a strategy to tag (stay behind) YK until after 500 miles - Trying to go for the win.  I guess I did that with my 1st 24 hour, a 2 laps (2.4 mile laps) ahead of 2nd place, so I just tried to keep him in sight and only walk when he walked ... This went on for the last 3 hours.  I ended up 4.17 miles ahead.

             

            The thing I do not take lightly that the article points out is how punishing and abusive a multi-day race is to your body.

             

            and a really interesting read at irunfar

              I got that too. Hardcore. Well except what looked like painted toenails in the pic. Or perhaps they were black and the camera made it seem blue.
