Pittsfield Peaks 2009Adam and Sherpa John at Pittsfield Peaks this year

This weekend is an exciting weekend in our lives. Adam is racing the Vermont 100 mile foot race this weekend. He’s been preparing for this since at least the Vermont 50 miler last year. And he signed up at the first opportunity this year. The person who inspired him to start racing Ultramarathons, Sherpa John, did an interview with Adam about Adam’s Ultra Experience and the upcoming race.

Sherpa John has been involved in extensive hiking and ultramarathons for several years now. He has used his talents to raise significant money for diabetes.  And he runs a pretty popular blog on his adventures in Ultrarunning and hiking. Check out his blog here.

  1. I checked it out. so interesting. Do people actually run the ENTIRE 24 hours or do they walk a lot?

    • Hubby says that everybody walks some even the front runners. There’s just so many hills. The front runners do walk a lot less. But if you think about it in order to finish in 24 hours you have to average 4 mph which is a quick clipped walk. I think most average runners try to get themselves into good positions early so that they can walk most of the parts that have them slogging around in the woods talking to trees.
