I will be participating in the Extra Mile Enurathon (click here) this weekend.
The event is an Ultrawalk where the participants walk on a 3.7 mile loop through Boulder, CO beginning at 5pm today (May 30th) and there is no finish line the last person walking wins.
The record was set in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil at 102 hours. Distance is not important, time is.
We only get a 10 min break every loop to rest, fix our feet change clothes etc.. Though there is an athletic component in the walking it is more an event around Will & sleep deprivation.
I am pretty stong willed and do well without much sleep - so we will see. The top 4 contestants qualify for the World Championship in Las Vegas on December 3rd, 2008. I would like to be there.
Please feel free to walk with us this weekend if you are in Boulder, otherwise follow my podcasts from Utterz. I will be posting them live during the event.
