Could you run an ultra marathon, more than 55 kilometres over mountains and rough terrain, six months from today? I asked myself that question in January of 2013, and would never have imagined the answer. Six months later, I was in the mountains, in the cold, at midnight, in shorts, facing an adventure I’ll never forget. Why? Because no one told me it couldn’t be done. I’m 43 years old. I’ve never exercised in my life. I couldn’t run a hundred paces last January without collapsing in anguish. Now a marathon is a training run for me. I’ve been known to run twenty or more miles on a whim, alone. In this book, much of it written during those first six months as I was training, I capture what it was like to go from a middle-aged couch potato to running in my first ultra marathon. I talk about diet, training plans, pain, and overcoming mental and physical limitations. I found a new love and a new respect for myself and for human potential.

About the Author:

Paul is the owner of a software company in Poland, an American expat, husband and father, and he is not, I repeat not, suffering a mid-life crisis just because he suddenly quit his job, started growing out his hair, and taking up ultramarathon running in his mid-40s. Really. No, really.
