A bit of self serving topic  :Big Grin:

This is a new book 'The Messengers' about runners who have run more that 100 marathons:

Interesting fact:

By the end of the 2008 climbing season, there had been 4,102 ascents to the summit by about 2,700 individuals. Less people have run 100 marathons world wide. The 100 marathon Club is more exclusive that summitting Everest.

Quite a few Australians get a mention. When you read the book you realise that in Australia running a dozen or so marathons a year is quite sane as there are some runners out there running marathons running 100+ a year :crazy:

2002-2011 frequency attached. NB. runner #17 enters with different names and I didn't bother correcting this.

Nothing wrong with that.  


Well Done Eagle!   ...I'm not sure that a dozen or so marathons a year can be classed as sane....maybe a lesser degree of crazy?!  

Awesome in any case  :Applause:

Thanks for posting this Eagle, I'm going to put the book on "my must read list".  I'm a little freaked out about running my first marathon.  100+ is awesome!  :im Not Worthy:
