you'd have to be like 20lbs underweight to do that without doing major damage to your knees and hips and ankles, etc.

you'd have to have some serious shock absorbing shoes and socks to be running on black top that far, looks like they are barely jogging, almost speed walking.

Even walking 135 miles non stop would destroy your feet.

The knees thing is a myth. If you run intelligent and have lots of training, your knees will be alright.

The winner ran 135 miles in 22h51. 5.9 miles/hour average, it's pretty fucking awesome.

And you know what, there's even a more hardcore race... the DOUBLE Badwater Ultramarathon race... 270 miles in the same conditions!

One guy did it 4 times IN A ROW.

Arguably most famous for his exploits in the Badwater Ultramarathon across Death Valley, Ulrich has finished the race 18 times and crossed Death Valley a record 24 times, including a 586-mile 'Badwater Quad,' covering the course four times (twice up and back), and a self-contained, unaided solo, in which he pulled all supplies (food, ice, medical) in a cart that weighed more than 200 pounds at the start.

Being a GLP'er, I was ready to make a fortune on the prediction market. I found the one with most transparency. Then I was warned there were tax implications.

By the time I paid a ton of lawyers a ton of fees for the regs, the founder of the trading company dies on Everest.

if you are somewhat overweight it will definitely destroy your knees, although you would probably lose so much in the first 20 miles it wouldnt matter so much.

If a racehorse gains too much weight and runs full speed, they will break their legs, ruin their knees, they'll have to euthanize them.
