Ever wondered what it takes to run an ultramarathon? Or who would be crazy enough to try such a thing? Then check out this new film from Brendan Leonard (of “Semi Rad” fame). It tells the story of two pretty ordinary guys who work together to achieve an extraordinary goal.
These days, you don’t have to scroll far through your Instagram feed to see some pro athlete performing some otherworldly feat. So it’s rather refreshing to see a couple of regular guys pull off a feat this big, and see the ridiculous amount of work, sweat, chafing, and burritos that go into it.
The film does an excellent job of portraying the perseverance, dedication, companionship, pain, and tremendous effort it takes to complete such an endeavor, and does so while avoiding cliche. So whether you’re looking to run your own ultra, tick off some big backcountry objective, or just searching for some general motivation, “How to Run 100 Miles” is something you should see.
