The Fleet Feet Sports Blog is full of helpful (and sometimes tasty!) information! Ever consider doing an ultra race? Then this blog post is for you!

Not anymore. Today ultramarathons are as commonplace as 5Ks (OK, not quite but sometimes it sure seems that way). Just how many of your non-running friends have heard of the Barkley Ultramarathon? Our guess is quite a few.
