    Pretty sure if he didn't run 100+ miles per event, he'd eat a bit less.

    LOL. That reminds me of an article I read about ultra-marathoners. One guy in the article would stop at a bakery and get a cake to eat while he was running. Or a large pizza. Yes, that's right. WHILE HE WAS RUNNING.

    Ultras are eating contests in disguise. It's a huge issue for these guys to get in enough calories to keep going while their digestive systems are thrown out of whack by the ridiculous effort. They all have different strategies but mostly they eat real food as there are only so many gels you can suck back. Baked potatoes are popular.

    To make this post semi-on-topic, I imagine a guy like Anton who can endure pain and fatigue at a level most of us can't imagine has a better than average chance at survival.

    Men's Health had an article on one guy they labeled "The Fittest Man on Earth", who'd order a pizza to be delivered at the midway point of his marathons.

    May have been the same article.

    There was also a lady that couldn't stand to go for more than a few hours at a time without running. If her family went on a trip, she'd wait for them to stop for lunch. While they ate, she'd take off running down the highway and they'd pick her up when they left.

    Batshit crazy if you ask me.

    Homeboy could just run right out of a disaster situation. Things are probably better 100 miles away.

    Didn't he once enter a 200 mile relay by himself?
