JOGLE – day 3

Posted on 02 May 2010

I was running my “long” run yesterday and was thinking of the guys doing the JOGLE. In comparison to what they are doing, I am just playing around in the kids pool… They are covering close to 60 miles per day for 15 days in a row!

They are only through day three and I was sad to read that Justin (who I met in Spain during the Al Andalus ultra) had pulled out due to bad feet. In fact 5 out of the 12 runners have pulled out at this point.

It just goes to show that the JOGLE run is not something you should take lightly. I have played with the thought (of course), but for me I think I need a few more years before even starting to contemplating do such a run. But as one of the runners said today “It only hurts when I run”…

Well done to Justin for what he did, and good luck for the rest of the runners!
