The Suffer Vest

“I’m not what you’d call a ‘runner.’ I prefer it to getting fat, but not by a lot,” writes Brendan Leonard. “The most I’d run in the past few years was probably close to 12 km. I ran a marathon once, and although it felt pretty recent, it was nine years ago.” So what’s a non-runner to do? Sign up for a 50K trail race with less than 25 days to train, of course. Ready, set, race.

You can find more of Brendan’s writing at Semi-Rad.

    Just ran my first trail marathon, and this short was 100% spot on. Thanks for putting it together, I really enjoyed it!

    This was very inspiring. I just did my first 16k and about to do a tail 20k

    I’m hoping to make it to a 50k very soon!
