I have run 3 26.2 marathons and I can not imagine running 100 miles at one time. That is a little crazy and a lot determination. Congrats to those runners on a heck of a mile stone. :)

How could this article fail to mention John Horns, native Minnesotan and ultrathoner extraordinaire? Not only did he win this year's Superior Sawtooth 100, he won the inaugural Black Hills 100k in Sturgis, South Dakota in June.

How can this article have failed to mentioned John Horns, Minnesota native and ultrathoner extraordinaire? Not only did he win this year's Superior Sawtooth 100 but he also was first across the line in the inaugural Black Hills 100k in Sturgis, South Dakota this June.

Great story. Am encouraged to try my first ultra; will make final decision after I check the price of a 50 lb bag of maltodextrin. SS
