WMR Barefoot Ted does Back 2 Back Marathons

By: Chris Quesada

Webster definition of INSANE is-

1 . Afflicted with or characteristic of mental derangement.
2. Very foolish, *harebrained ideas*.

Id like to compare the above two definitions by illustration. Imagine running April 17th Boston marathon with a fast finishing time of 3:20. Now you rest for four days then run a Saturday April 22nd 50 miler Ultra Marathon. For most of us the concept of running a marathon and then an ultra marathon back to back seem completely unfeasible and daunting. Not our Barefoot Ted. This unbelievable accomplishment now qualifies Ted for the AC100 this year. A long time goal accomplished!

Thanks Chris

Yes, I guess you all are right, it is not normal, but compared to the legends like Jorge, Scott, Guillermo and others, it's really no big deal.

The big deal, at least for me, is that I FEEL FINE!!!

Best Regards, Barefoot Ted
